I love my husband! He takes me to Starbucks for coffee at least once a week and we both get googly eyed and look madly deeply into to our cell phones! You thought I was going to say eyes didn’t you?
Supplies for Coffee Cookies:
I wanted mocha cookies so I used Created by Diane’s Peppermint Mocha Cut out Cookies. Since it is Valentine’s Day, I decided not to add the peppermint. They are really good if you want to give them try.
I will admit it, I hand cut these. I don’t like it one bit but, since I was only making a few, it didn’t kill me. I have great news for you though, Klickitat Street made some coffee cup cookies and she was way smarter then me! Check out how she used a cupcake cutter and a wedding cake cutter to make two different to go coffee cups. She is so smart!
With the tan outline icing, outline the cozy part of the cookie.
Then, with the white icing, outline the lid.
I have a tip to help reduce the icing from bleeding. When you outline the red, leave a very small space between it and the other colors. Try to get it as close as possible so it won’t look bad but, your cookie will be safe from bleeding. This won’t work for all designs but, it works for this cookie.
All you need to finish are a royal icing button and flower. You should make these ahead of time so they will be ready when you make the cookies. For a royal icing tutorial, click here. Ali Bee’s Bake Shop has a great ribbon rose tutorial here. Just make it as big as you want and attach it to the burlap.
