Our Fill the Cookie Jar post was postponed a week to allow more bloggers time to participate. Our June theme is Father’s Day so I am serving up these Mocha Butter Cookies for those coffee/chocolate loving dads.
Fill the Cookie Jar is the creation of Cynthia over at Feeding Big. Each month a group of bloggers make a cookie around a common theme and then share with all of you. Kind of like a virtual cookie exchange. Be sure to scroll below the recipe to see what everyone else brought to the party this month.
My dad was a big coffee drinker, but I don’t remember him ever having mocha sweets. My husband loves mocha ice cream, cake, cookies, etc. but doesn’t drink coffee. I think both would enjoy this cookie.
Like most of my recipes this one is easy to adapt:
- If you aren’t a fan of coffee, scale back on the espresso powder and add just a pinch to enhance the chocolate.
- Add a bit of cayenne pepper for a nice spicy kick.
- Roll the dough and use cookie cutters for a twist on traditional sugar cookies.
- Frost them, leave them plain, or make cookie sandwiches with them.
You get the idea.
Until next time, happy eating.
