Tiramisu Cookies

Tiramisu cookies are soft and chewy coffee sugar cookies topped with a rich a creamy espresso mascarpone frosting and a light dusting of cocoa powder.

In a small bowl, melt the butter and whisk in the espresso powder. Transfer to the fridge and cool for about 10 minutes.

Step 1:  

In another bowl whisk together the flour, contarch, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well combined.

Step 2:  

In a large mixing bowl, whisk in the cooled espresso butter with the granulated sugar until well combined. Whisk in the egg and vanilla extract until smooth and well combined.

Step 3:  

Stir the dry ingredients into the wet until just combined. I like to do this about ½ of the dry ingredients at a time. Scoop cookies onto a lined baking sheet. 

Step 4:  

Bake at 375 F (190 C) for 10 - 12 minutes or until the edges of the cookies are set and the centers are slightly puffed. Cool the chewy coffee sugar cookies on the baking sheet for 5 minutes. Then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely to room temperature. 

Step 5:  

On low, whisk the mascarpone cheese until smooth. Once smooth, mix in the espresso powder, vanilla extract and powdered sugar until well combined. Add heavy cream and increase the mixer speed to medium for about 2 - 3 minutes or until the frosting is light and fluffy.

Step 6:  

Top the soft and chewy espresso sugar cookies with 1 -2  tablespoons (15 - 30 ml) mascarpone frosting. Use the back of a spoon or an icing spatula to smoot the frosting across the top in a circular motion. Dust with cocoa powder and enjoy.
