Coffeehouse Shortbreads at Home

Have you ever gone to a coffee shop and had the most amazing Coffeehouse Shortbreads cookies and wanted to make them at home?  I’ve had that experience too!  I love to come home and make things from scratch that mirror something I’ve had out, so these cookies were a must.  Tender shortbreads are something I’ve always loved out, but there had to be a good way to make them at home.

Start with Quality Coffee for Coffeehouse Shortbreads

You read that right!  These Coffeehouse Shortbreads have coffee in them!  I started with quality ground coffee, from a local coffee house that I frequent.  They grind it really fine for me, so it goes really nicely in the cookies.  Eat coffee grounds?  Yes!  I fell in love with chocolate covered espresso beans years ago, and adding a bit of finely ground coffee to a phenomenal Coffeehouse Shortbreads cookie was a no-brainer.  It adds a richness and depth that the plain cookie itself lacks.  Try a non-flavored, quality coffee, such as a Kona or Kona blend, in this wonderfully complex cookie and save the flavored coffees for your cup.
