A nourishing, burst of energy at breakfast time, and a super-tasty afternoon snack. Coffee biscuits are a real delight for fans of the black beverage par excellence, and today we’ll find out how to make a delicious version with vanilla, a favourite with many coffee connoisseurs.
These little treats are also a delectable way of ensuring you consume the right quantity of what can be considered a real elixir, given that coffee has a wide variety of very important properties.
Ingredients for 200 gr biscuits
- 150 g sugar.
- 1 egg.
- 60 ml vegetable oil.
- 50 ml long espresso coffee. For this recipe, we recommend the intense, full-bodied Classico blend, which you can find, together with other compatible capsules, in the Special Tasting Pack or in the form of ground coffee for the moka pot.
- 250 g all-purpose flour.
- 80 g almond flour or very finely chopped almonds.
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or 1 sachet of vanilla powder.
- 10 g yeast for cakes and biscuits.
- A pinch of salt.
Let’s make our coffee biscuits with almonds and vanilla!
- Beat the whole egg, adding the sugar a little at a time so that it is fully absorbed.
- Add the vanilla and stir.
- Add the coffee and continue stirring until the mixture is the same colour throughout.
- Now add the vegetable oil and stir until completely absorbed.
- Next add the all-purpose flour, well-sifted, little by little, taking care not to allow any lumps to form.
- Add the almonds, yeast, and a pinch of salt, and stir gently until the mixture is even and smooth.
Your dough is ready! Leave it to rest for five minutes and then let your imagination run wild, cutting your biscuits into any shape you want. You can either use biscuit cutters or simply shape them by hand: start by making some small balls with your hands, all of the same size. Flatten them using a smooth surface, like a spoon for example, so that all the biscuits are the same shape.
Turn on the oven at 180°. In the meantime place the coffee biscuits with almonds and vanilla on a baking tray and leave aside for 10 minutes. Once the 10 minutes are up, place the tray in the oven for about 15/20 minutes.
The baking time depends on the oven and the size of the biscuits. Around the ten minute mark, begin checking them through the glass, but don’t open the oven door because that could lead to disaster!
When the biscuits are perfectly baked, leave them to cool for at least 40 minutes: by now their scent will be making your head spin!
Having left them to cool for 40 minutes, your delicious coffee biscuits with almonds and vanilla will be ready to taste! If sweet recipes are your passion, find out how to make coffee Bundt cake, easy to bake and perfect at breakfast and breaktime.
