A very simple recipe for lots of chocolate mocha biscuits A nice adult biscuit with the addition of coffee for added chocolate intensity!

Ingredients

  • 230 g unsalted butter, softened
  • 110 g caster sugar
  • 230 g plain flour ((plus a little extra for dusting and rolling))
  • 60 g cornflour
  • 60 g cocoa powder
  • 10 g instant espresso powder

Instructions

1
Preheat the oven to 180ºC/Gas Mark 4.
2
Grind the coffee powder with the back of a spoon in a bowl, so that it is nice and fine.
3
In a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, place the butter and sugar into the bowl and cream until fluffy.
4
In a separate bowl, sift the plain flour, cornflour, cocoa powder and instant espresso powder. Add the dry ingredients to the mixer with the butter and sugar and mix until a dough is formed. Wrap in clingfilm and chill for 30 minutes.
5
Lightly dust the worktop with flour and roll out the dough to about 6mm (¼in) thick. Cut into circles with a 6cm (2¼in) round cutter and place onto 2 baking sheets lined with baking parchment. You only need to leave a little space between the biscuits as they do not spread too much.
6
Gather up the offcuts, reroll and continue until you have 30 biscuits. Chill for 15 minutes in the fridge.
7
Bake for 15-20 minutes. Cool on the trays for 5 minutes, then move to a wire rack to cool completely.
