  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 16 cookies 1x



1 1/4 cups All-purpose flour

3/4 cup Cake flour

1 teaspoon Cornstarch

2 tablespoons Instant coffee powder

1/2 teaspoon Baking powder

1/2 teaspoon Baking soda

1/2 teaspoon Salt

1/2 cup Unsalted butter, softened to room temperature

1/2 cup Brown sugar, packed

1/4 cup White granulated sugar

1 teaspoon Vanilla extract

1 large Egg

1 Egg yolk

1 cup Espresso morsels, optional


1 cup Powdered sugar

1 teaspoon Vanilla

23 tablespoons Milk


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl sift together the flour, cake flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the instant coffee powder and whisk to combine.

  4. Add in the egg and yolk, then add the vanilla. Beat until combined.
  5. Add the flour mixture 1/3 at a time until all of the flour is fully incorporated. 
  6. Fold in the espresso morsels if you’re using them. Stick extra on top if you’d like.
  7. Use a medium cookie scoop to drop dough onto your prepared baking sheet, leaving 2 inches between. 
  8. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden.
  9. Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to finish cooling.
  10. Prepare the thin glaze in a small bowl. Whisk together the powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk. 
  11. Drizzle the icing over the cooled cookies. Allow the icing to set before serving.
