  • 8 oz bittersweet chocolate chips, or cut in small pieces

  • 2 Tbsp finely ground coffee espresso or french roast Use less for a more subtle effect.

  • 1 Tbsp ground cardamom use less for a more subtle effect.

  • chocolate coating

  • 1 tsp vegetable oil

  • 1 cup unsalted butter at room temperature

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour

  • 2/3 cup sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350F
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, put the sugar and add the butter and salt. Mix together until combined.
  • Mix in the flour, cardamom, and ground coffee until they come together.
  • Pull the dough together with your hands and place on a floured surface. Roll out to about 1/4 inch.
  • Using your preferred cookie cutter to cut out the cookies.
  • Bring the cookies to a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for about 10 minutes.
  • Before transferring to a cooling rack, let cool slightly
  • Put the chocolate and vegetable oil in a small Pyrex measuring cup and microwave for 30 seconds, to make the chocolate coating. Stir. Microwave for another 30 seconds. Stir until melted.
  • Dip half of each cooled cookie in the chocolate, and let the excess drip off. Place the cookies down on parchment paper to harden.


  • Originally this recipe called cold butter, but I’ve updated it to room temperature butter, I find that the dough comes together a little easier under that way.  
    If you want a thicker layer of chocolate, once the cookies are place, give them a double dip. In this case, you will need more chocolate.
