Cut out cookies with gourmet flair! These tender, yet crisp butter cookies are flavored with coffee and dipped in a chocolate glaze.
Combine hot water and coffee granules in bowl; stir until coffee granules are dissolved. Set aside.
Combine 1 cup butter, sugar and egg in another bowl. Beat at medium speed, until creamy. Add coffee; continue beating, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Add flour and baking powder; beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed.
Divide dough into thirds. Shape each third into a ball; flatten slightly. Wrap each in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate 2-3 hours or until firm.
Heat oven to 400°F. Line cookie sheets with waxed paper; set aside.
Roll out dough on lightly floured surface, one-third at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/8- to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut with cookie cutters. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 6-10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool completely.
Melt chocolate and shortening in 1-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, 4-6 minutes or until melted.
Dip half of each cookie into chocolate. Place onto prepared cookie sheets; refrigerate until chocolate is firm. Store refrigerated.

Love this cookie! Perfect subtle coffee flavor, not too sweet so the chocolate dipped edge is not overwhelming.
I found the dough very hard to work with, even though I let it sit in the refrigerator long enough. I wound up having to use a lot of flour when rolling it out. If I make these cookies again I will increase the flour to 3 cups and see if that helps. It does have a lovely buttery-coffee flavor.
Easy to make, looks great, and everyone loved it!!
Very tasty and very easy
This is a very good cookie and was a big hit with my family and easy to make

Great cookie. Friends loved it!
It is lovely for coffee lovers.

This year, my grandson Clark is 3 years old, so I wanted to make some cookies that he would love to eat and would find to be fun, too. These adorable Powdered Sugar Snowmen Cookies are just the ticket.
Chocolate’s complex flavor brings out the sweetness and tanginess of fruit, mellows the heat of peppers, and comes alive when introduced to a little bit of salt. The real question should be, “What can’t you dip in chocolate?” More ...
