Years ago Monica Gray shared this recipe for crunchy coffee-and-chocolate bars rolled in sugar. They take so little time to make and are so delicious that they're worth making any time of year. I like to make the most of my cookies, serving them on Christmas Eve — before everyone is sated with platters of them on Christmas Day and over the holidays.

In bowl, beat butter with icing sugar until fluffy. Stir coffee granules into vanilla until dissolved; blend into butter mixture. In separate bowl, sift together flour, cocoa and salt ; stir in ground coffee. Add to batter, mixing with hands if necessary to make smooth dough.

On plastic wrap, form dough into 18-inch (45 cm) long log, using wrap to press out evenly. Shape into 2-inch (5 cm) wide and scant 1-inch (2.5 cm) high bar; cut crosswise into scant 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick slices. Place on parchment paper-lined rimless baking sheet. Bake in centre of 350°F (180°C) oven for about 20 minutes or until firm to the touch.

Sprinkle granulated sugar into shallow dish. One at a time, roll hot cookies in sugar; let cool on racks. (Make-ahead: Store layered between waxed paper in airtight container for up to 2 weeks or freeze for up to 1 month.)
