Coffee & Spice Cookies

This recipe is courtesy of my mother-in-law.  I have not quite mastered these cookies, but I will keep trying as they are my husband’s favorite.  His mother, of course, makes them perfectly.


  • 1 cup shortening or butter
  • 2 cups dark brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of cold coffee
  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  2. Mix together the shortening/butter, eggs, and brown sugar.
  3. Add the cold coffee.
  4. Sift together the flour, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon.
  5. Mix everything together.
  6. Bake for 8 – 10 minutes.

Makes about 6 dozen cookies, so you may very well want to halve it.
