Mocha Cookies

Today I made cookies instead of blogging. Then I thought I could make cookies and still blog, if I blogged about cookies. Thus I present the great profundity of my cookie recipe.

  • Preheat oven to 200°C.

  • Cream 125ml baking margarine. (I microwave it for 30 seconds first.)

  • Stir in 250ml sugar.

  • Beat two eggs and add to mixture.

  • Sift in 500ml flour, 150ml cocoa and 5ml baking powder.

  • Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and add half a cup of strong black coffee. (I used 5 spoons of chicory blend coffee in mine, but the coffee taste isn't very strong.)

  • Stir

  • Either roll the dough out and cut with a cookie cutter or mould it into little mounds and place on a greased baking tray.

  • Bake for about ten minutes in the top of the oven.

  • I sandwiched mine with icing-sugar-and-water icing (with a bit of cocoa added), but they work fine as individual biscuits too.
