Coffee Cookies

I actually can’t believe why I don’t bake cookies more often. I mean, if you basically only need butter, flour and sugar – a cookie is a treat that is cheap and ridiculously versatile.

This recipe of Coffee Cookies was bound to hit the blog sooner or later, and it couldn’t have come at a perfect time. Today is International Coffee day, apparently. So celebrate this rather mundane day, it is a Monday after all, with this proudly South African Coffee Cookie recipe.

So this here is another one of those recipes that make me pretty proud of my heritage and since it is the second last day of Heritage Month, why not have your cookie jar full of these deliciously sweet biscuits.

It is super easy, absolutely mouthwatering AND rather special since it is the recipe that has been passed down generations from my great gran, who probably had a few of these with a flask of ‘moer koffie’ as they traveled over the Drakensberg mountains.

I don’t really have a cookie jar and the batch I baked this morning will probably not see the light of day tomorrow, but you can completely fill yours up. Have a good old traditional treat with your coffee every morning.  Chat soon!
