Brown Sugar Hazelnut Cookies with Coffee Almond Frosting

I’m a fairly mild, well-behaved girl and my vices are typically as tame as coffee and sweets. You can imagine my glee when I discovered a recipe which combines them both: brown sugar hazelnut cookies with coffee almond frosting. I found the recipe for the cookies here and whipped up the frosting myself.

I followed the recipe as directed and these babies came out beautifully soft and golden.

These cookies are perfectly chewy with just the right amount of sweetness.

Cookies

Coffee Almond Frosting

1 stick butter

1 tsp evaporated milk

4 tsp instant espresso

1/4 cup sliced almonds

Powdered sugar (somewhere around 3-4 cups)

Cream the butter, add the milk and coffee, then add the sugar a little bit at a time until you get the right consistency. You might want to toss in a pinch of salt or two. Spoon unto cookies and let set.

Layer the cookies between wax paper if you would like to freeze them.

Enjoy with a cup of coffee and Downtown Abbey.
