Coffee and walnut biscuits

Coffee and walnut biscuits

These are a tasty treat to have with a cup of tea or coffee. They are deliciously short with the winning combination of coffee and walnut.  I have made some for us today and the remaining dough has been put in the fridge to be baked fresh on the morning for tomorrow’s bread course.

Makes about 25 biscuits

250g softened unsalted butter
55g muscovado sugar
55g caster sugar
2 tsp instant espresso powder
50g walnuts, finely chopped
100g wholemeal spelt or wholemeal flour
150g plain flour

Method
Grease two baking trays with butter, preheat your oven to 180°c, gas mark 4 or use the baking oven of your Aga.
Cream the butter, until soft. Add the two sugars and beat until fluffy. Add the espresso powder, walnuts and the flours and continue to beat until all is combined. Take a piece of dough about the size of a walnut and shape into a ball, flatten slightly, place on the greased tray. Use the prongs of a fork to press each biscuit down a little.

Bake the biscuits for 10-12 minutes until golden and firm. Leave to rest on the tray for a few minutes, then place on a wire rack to cool.

  1. My husband’s favourite cake bar none is coffee and walnut cake. These could become his favourite biscuits. An OCCASIONAL treat 😉

  2. Thank you! These look delicious. Was going to make them immediately but do not have (yet) instant express coffee powder.

    Lucky me, these sound just like what I’m looking for, Kath. Wishing you and your family a happy, healthy New Year. Everything here is good except the dreary winter weather.

  4. I might have to make some of these for CT, he loves coffee and walnut. I can’t believe we’re already well into January already. It’s a bit late but Happy New Year and wishing you all success with The Veg Patch Kitchen 🙂

    • Thanks Choclette, do make them, they are really good. I know you aren’t a coffee fan but you must indulge CT occasionally. Veg Patch is going from strength to strength, thankfully. I can’t believe how much has happened in a year. I hope it continues. Sending you best wishes. x

  5. Many thanks for this recipe. The coffee biscuits are absolutely delightful with just the right amount of expresso powder and walnuts – Definitely a treat to be made again!!
