Coffee is life for us, let’s be honest, which is why these Dusted Coffee Cookies are pretty much the greatest thing in our lives right now. They’re effortlessly delicious and delightfully rich in coffee flavours. These cookies are dusted in cocoa, and it does pay to use good quality cocoa for it. The cocoa will be bitter, but that bitterness adds to the coffee flavour. If you aren’t sure about the cocoa, use is sparingly. These Dusted Coffee Cookies are definitely adults only, the flavour will probably be too much for kids.
