Espresso Shortbread

Wishing you a warm and toasty Tuesday!

I am a tea drinker! I LOVE all things tea. I have many friends who enjoy coffee and some who LOVE coffee! My husband LOVES his coffee! I created this recipe with that in mind. I am not a fan of the smell of coffee however, these cookies smell wonderful! The dough smells great and then when they are baking and come out of the oven, divine! If you are a coffee dipper they make a good cookie to dip in coffee. I also kicked them up a notch by dipping them in chocolate and toasted coconut! I used a simple round scalloped edge cookie cutter but I made some of them with these over the edge cookie cutters that I’ve had for years! ENJOY!

Stay tuned for one more post on coffee this week…….
