Cappuccino Shortbread 

The recipe of the month for June.

Cappuccino Shortbread
4 tsp instant coffee finely ground in coffee grinder
1 cup butter
1/2 cup icing sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1-3/4 cups flour
1/4 cup cornstarch
6 squares semi-sweet chocolate

Finely grind the instant coffee. In a large bowl, cream butter then add sugar, coffee and vanilla. Sift together flour and cornstarch and add to butter mixture. Mix to a nice smooth dough. Mould dough into the shape of a coffee bean (approx 1 tsp dough per cookie). Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 325 for 15 minutes. Allow to cool. Melt chocolate squares and dip cookie into chocolate. Place on cookie sheet lined with wax paper and place in fridge or freezer to allow chocolate to set.

Absolutely mouth watering!

(I swear there will be knitting content next week!) :)
