Ingredients for Walnut Coffee Biscuits Recipe

  • Walnut Kernels 24

  • Refined Flour 2 cups

  • Butter,chopped 125 grams

  • Castor sugar (caster sugar) 1/4 cup + tablespoons

  • Egg,lightly beaten 1

  • Vanilla essence 1 teaspoon

  • For filling

  • Ground walnuts 1 cup

  • Butter 60 grams

  • Powdered sugar 1/4 cup

  • Milk 1 tablespoon

  • For icing

  • Instant coffee powder 1 1/2 teaspoons

  • Icing sugar 1 1/2 cup

  • Butter,softened 5 grams

Method

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4. Grease a baking tray. Sift flour into a bowl and rub in the butter with your fingertips. Add the sugar, egg and vanilla essence and mix into a soft dough.

Step 2

Knead the dough gently on a lightly floured surface until smooth. Roll out the dough between two sheets of greaseproof paper to a one-eight-inch thick round.

Step 3

Cut into forty-eight biscuits with a two-and-a-half-inch round cookie cutter. Place the biscuits a little apart on the greased tray and bake for about fifteen minutes or until light golden brown.

Step 4

Remove from the oven and turn out onto wire racks to cool. For the filling, mix together the butter and powdered sugar till smooth; stir in the walnuts and milk. Spread the filling on half the biscuits and cover them with the remaining half.

Step 5

For the coffee icing, mix the instant coffee powder with three tablespoon of water. Sift the icing sugar into a small bowl and add the butter. Add just enough of the coffee mixture to make a stiff paste. Spread the paste over the sandwiched biscuits and top each one with a walnut half.
