Kahlúa Wafers

Yield 16 cookies


  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons Kahlúa
  • 2 tablespoons instant coffee granules
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

How to Make It

  1. Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy; gradually add sugar, beating well.

  2. Stir together Kahlúa, coffee granules, and vanilla until coffee dissolves; add to butter mixture, beating until blended.

  3. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt; add to butter mixture, beating at low speed just until blended.

  4. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and roll to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut with a floured 3-inch round cutter, and place 1 inch apart on lightly greased baking sheets.

  5. Bake at 375° for 7 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned; remove to wire racks to cool.
