Perhaps the easiest thing to bake is a cookie. Many bakers started their career producing these little edibles from their then still-small kitchens. Not surprisingly, even kids can bake cookies of their choice.

Making cookies is an active aspect of the current baking industry. What started as a piece of biscuit made from flour, eggs, sugar, milk, and baking powder, has turned into a global business with different variants, each mixture blended with different flavors-vanilla, chocolate, liqueurs, fruits, and now coffee, thanks to innovative bakers.


You will need:

1 cup unsalted butter, softened

1½ cups brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

2 eggs

2½ cups teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

3/4 teaspoon iodized salt

1 tablespoon instant coffee powder, dissolved in 1 tablespoon hot water

1 packet chocolate button candies

Here's how:

1) Preheat conventional oven to 180oC (350oF). If using a convection oven, preheat to 150oC (300oF).

2) Line baking sheets with silicon mats such as Silpat or with nonstick baking papers.

3) In mixing bowl of electric mixer, combine butter, brown sugar, and white sugar.

4) Using the paddle attachment of an electric mixer, beat mixture on low speed until blended, about one minute.

5) Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in vanilla extract.

6) In a bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add to butter mixture and stir until blended. Stir in coffee solution.

7) Using (#30) medium ice cream scoop, drop scoops of cookie batter onto prepared baking sheets, spacing them two inches apart.

8) Decorate each cookie with candies to look like happy faces.

9) Bake for exactly 10 minutes. The cookies will be slightly soft in the center but will continue to cook. Cool cookies completely. Pack in attractive jars or cans.
