Coffee walnut cookies

Using my favourite cookie dough recipe, I’ve decided to make coffee walnut cookies today. Once you have a good cookie dough recipe, you can pretty much make anything with your favourite ingredients. The thing I like about this cookie dough recipe is that it does not expand much when baking and it maintains the shape of the cookie cutter so I get prettily shaped cookies. I would always leave my dough to rest overnight in the refrigerator because it helps to enhance the flavour and texture of the dough. What I usually do when I’m free is to make a batch of cookie dough and freeze it. It can be left frozen in the freezer for up to three months. So whenever I feel like making cookies, I have a variety of cookie doughs to choose from!



  1. 140g unsalted butter (room temperature)
  2. 100g caster sugar
  3. 2 egg yolks
  4. 2 tsp coffee essence
  5. 240g plain flour
  6. 1 tsp baking powder
  7. 50g walnuts
  8. 50g chocolate chips


Preparation time: 10min
Baking time: 15-20min or when the cookie turns golden brown

  1. Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy
  2. Add in the two egg yolks and 2 tsp of coffee essence and continue to cream
  3. Sieve the flour and baking powder into the creamed mixture. Fold it in until a dough forms
  4. Fold in the chocolates and walnuts
  5. Cling wrap it and leave it in the fridge overnight or in the freezer for an hour
  6. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees
  7. Roll the dough out and cut it out into shapes using a cookie cutter
  8. Bake it in the oven for about 15min or until it turns golden brown

There you have it!
