2 cups margarine
1 cup icing sugar
6 squirts Zavida French Vanilla Unsweetened Flavour Shots*
3/4 cup corn starch
1/4 cup instant coffee granules
3 cups flour
Preheat oven to 325°F. In a large bowl, cream margarine and icing sugar. Stir in vanilla flavouring. Combine corn starch, coffee granules** and flour in a large measuring cup. Gradually beat into margarine mixture until smooth. Shape into one-inch balls and flatten with a fork. If you want to fancy them up, lightly press a coffee bean into the top of each cookie. Bake 10 minutes or until slightly browned.
Makes 7-8 dozen.
*found in the coffee aisle. You can substitute 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
**if you use the coffee granules as is, they will give a bit of crunch and a speckled texture to the cookies. If you crush them to powder with the back of a spoon, they won’t. The cookies are good either way.
