A crunchy sugar crust is the perfect finish to these simple, coffee-caramel flavoured cookies – ideal for dunking in a creamy latte! For a fun treat, sandwich them with decadent ice cream and freeze until firm.

Makes approx 24

  • 120g butter
  • ½ cup caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp instant coffee powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1½ cups self-raising flour
  • ¼ cup coffee crystals

1 Preheat oven to 175oC. Line two oven trays with baking paper.

2 In a medium saucepan, combine butter, sugar, milk, maple syrup, coffee and vanilla, and stir over a gentle heat until sugar has dissolved. Simmer for 2 minutes, remove from the heat and cool for 20 minutes.

3 Stir in flour, then roll into balls. Place coffee crystals into a plate and press each cookie in to flatten slightly and coat with crystals. Arrange on trays and bake for 15-20 minutes until pale golden brown.
