As it says on the tin this has nothing to do with sewing, or bardic, or really anything SCA appropriate. Other than scadians live on coffee and chocolate and baked goods are awesome. To that end I give you:
Death by Coffee Cookies.
You read that right. Now. Let’s get to it. You will need:
1 cup (2 sticks) of butter
3 cups of plain white sugar
16 tablespoons of coffee (I make mine with Deathwish, because Reasons)
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
5 cups AP flour
1 1/3 cup cocoa powder (I use dark chocolate, because again, Reasons)
1/2 table spoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon Auntie Arwen’s Turkish Coffee Spice (technically optional, so if you don’t have it don’t worry.)
Cream together butter, sugar, eggs, coffee, and vanilla. In a separate bowl mix together everything else. Slowly add your dry goods to your wet goods. Beat on low until everything is well combined and it looks like thick cake batter. Chill for half an hour.
Preheat your oven to 400. Drop tablespoon-ish sized globs of chilled batter on a greased baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Let cool 5-ish minutes on the pan so they can set before moving to a wire rack.
Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
