Last week I got one of my favorite care packages ever. It contained 6 cookies and 2 coffee toffees - made my by own darling mother. That first bite of Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookie was exquisite. Northland's food is good, but it can't compare to homemade cookies! I don't have the recipe for the cookies on my computer, but my sister sent me the Coffee Toffee recipe. See the photo and recipe below.
Coffee Toffee Bars
Cream 1 C soft butter
1 C brown sugar
Blend in 1 tsp. almond extract
1-2 T instant coffee
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
Add 2-2 1/2 C flour to make stiff dough.
Press into well-greased 9x13 pan, sprinkle choc. chips on top.
Bake @ 350*F for 20-25 min.
Notes: I think we usually use a jelly roll pan. Use however many chocolate chips you need to fulfill your soul's desire...probably 1-2 cups would be plenty.
This is a yummy treat - you can tell because the recipe card is so worn that you can hardly read it anymore! It's a unique alternative to chocolate chip cookies, with an interesting texture and just a hint of coffee flavoring - not strong enough to turn off non-coffee people like me. =)
Feel free to leave feedback if you give this a try!
