Ingredients

Cookie

1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 cups all-purpose flour
Sugar

Filling

1/2 teaspoon instant coffee granules
2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamon
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger

Topping

2 tablespoons powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa

Directions

Heat oven to 325°F. Combine all cookie ingredients except flour in large bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Add flour; beat at low speed until well mixed.

Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten to 1 1/2-inch diameter with bottom of glass dipped in sugar.

Bake 11-13 minutes or until set and cookies are lightly browned around edges. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely.

Meanwhile, combine half & half and instant coffee granules in medium bowl; stir until coffee is dissolved. Add all remaining filling ingredients; beat at low speed until moistened. Beat at medium speed until smooth and creamy. Spread 1 teaspoon filling onto bottom-side of 1 cookie; top with second cookie, bottom-side down. Repeat with remaining cookies.

Combine all topping ingredients in small bowl; sprinkle over tops of sandwich cookies.

Recipe Tip

- For a more intense coffee flavor, increase coffee granules to 1 teaspoon in filling.

- Use a small strainer to sift topping over cookies for an elegant look.
