Ingredients – What You Need
I used 1 1/4 cups of unsalted butter softened at room temperature. If you’re in a rush, you can also use melted butter, but be careful not to burn it.
2/3 cup of powdered sugar is enough for the cookies. Whether you want to use brown sugar or regular white sugar is entirely your choice.
For the dusting bit, you’ll need just a little more. It can be icing sugar or caster sugar, according to your liking for texture.
Three teaspoons of instant coffee are enough to give the cookies their signature flavor. I recommend using espresso or decaf, but any type of coffee works just fine.
All-purpose flour is the base of your coffee kiss cookies in this recipe. Use 2 cups of all-purpose flour. Remember to measure precisely and sift the flour to avoid lumps in the batter.
Lastly, you’ll need two tablespoons of boiling water to dissolve the instant coffee.

How to Make Coffee Kiss Cookies?
Making these coffee kiss cookies is pretty easy! All you need are some essential ingredients and a little bit of time. Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F and line your cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Now dissolve your aromatic instant coffee in boiling hot water to make a paste. It will be the star of the show in this recipe, so make sure to use a good quality coffee that you really love!
Next, cream butter and powdered sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy. Then add your coffee paste and mix it until everything is well combined. Finally, fold in the flour, and done!
I recommend baking cookies for 10-12 minutes in the preheated oven. But don’t leave them unattended. When fresh out of your medium oven, let them cool on the wire rack before you dust them with powdered sugar.
