Espresso Sugar
Raw Cucumber Soup


Espressoo doodles[1]

I have to say a steak is much more my hubbies liking then cookies, but he LOVED these. So I guess they are a keeper. This is just snickerdoodles but instead of using cinnamon sugar you use espresso sugar. Let them cool, you will taste the espresso much more. Snickerdoodles are sugar cookie dough rolled in sugar. So if you have a sugar dough recipe you love, use that. Enjoy and if you make it, let me know what you think!!


Makes about 2 dozen


2 1/2 cup flour, white or whole wheat pastry

1/2 tsp. salt

2 tsp. baking powder

1 cup soften butter, 2 sticks

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp. vanilla

1/3 cup espresso sugar


Pre-heat oven 350◦F

In a mixing bowl cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla. Scrap down bowl, add flour, salt and baking powder. Mix till dough comes together.

Roll dough in balls the size of a walnut and roll in espresso sugar. Set on greased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart, the cookies do spread. Bake 9-12 minutes till edges start to brown and center is risen. Let cool on cookies sheet 5 minutes, then transfer to rack to cool.

These sound good! I've always liked snickerdoodles. I'm glad you've shared your recipe for the sugar, and the cookies. I'm going to try these soon!

Oh my, this is true goodness. I'll have to give the recipe a try. I'm not sure about the expresso part since I've never even had a cup of coffee in my life--but I'm willing to try new things and learning about the taste of expresso would definitely be new for me. Thanks, Clarice, for sharing all your delicious ideas.


Oh my...this is such a wonderful idea and I'll bet very yummy, too! Thank you for the recipes!


Dear Clarice,

Thank you for sharing the recipe! My hubby and son will love that! You are so creative!
Love, Paula xo


What a delightful sugar cookie twist, yumm!

Now that's a smart twist on the sugar cookie or snickerdoodle. You never cease to amaze me Miss Clarice.

NOW you tell me! heehee! I have snickerdoodles on cooling racks RIGHT this minute! They are my hubby's favorite and I wanted him to have a special treat today!


oh yum.... that looks divine and would add a cup of Espresso with it. I shared a recipe for peanut butter banana bread with peanut butter frosting and chocolate chips in it... oh my... you'll want to make this one. Hugs to you this week, Mica
