These Coffee Bean Cookies are not something new. I had seen these a long time ago and knew I had to make them. The plan had been long delayed, but I thought these cookies were gonna perfect as holiday cookies.

These cookies look so cute. They perfectly resemble the real coffee beans, don’t they? They also taste like coffee with a nice undertone of chocolate. The texture of these cookies resembles the crunchy, tender, and crisp shortbread cookies. The cookies are so addictive that you will run out of them quickly.

How to Shape the Coffee Bean Cookies 

These cookies are so easy to shape and work with. Firstly, divide the dough into 1 teaspoon (8 gr) balls. Use a scale or scoop with a measuring spoon and level the top to make same-sized balls. Roll them into balls with your hands and gently roll them into ovals.

Once you are done shaping the balls, arrange them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Then, use a knife or something similar to press the middle like the picture below. Easy right?

Prep Time20 minutes
Cook Time17 minutes
Total Time37 minutes


  • 1/3 cup (75 gr) unsalted butter
  • 2/3 cup (80 gr) confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tbsp (5 gr) instant coffee
  • 2 tsp hot water
  • 1 cup (120 gr) cake flour
  • 3 tbsp (22 gr) cocoa powder
  • 3 1/2 tbsp (25 gr) cornstarch
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • Preheat oven to 340F/170°C and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a small bowl, stir instant coffee with hot water until dissolved.
  • In a medium bowl, combine cake flour, cocoa powder, cornstarch, and salt until well combined.
  • In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Whisk in the egg yolk and coffee mixture until well combined.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Stir with a spatula until well incorporated. The dough will look crumbly at first, but it will eventually come together after some mixing.
  • Scoop out 8 gr or a teaspoon of dough. Roll the dough into balls, then gently shape them into an oval. Arrange them on the prepared baking sheet. Press the middle of each ball with a knife.
  • Bake for 15-17 minutes. Cool on a wire rack completely before transferring them to an airtight container.


Make sure to measure the flour and sugar correctly if using volume measurement. The cookies will end up too crumbly or hard if you add too much flour. Use a spoon to scoop the flour into the measuring cup. Then, level the top with a knife or other straight-edged utensil.
Scoop the dough with a measuring spoon instead of a regular teaspoon. Make sure to level the top of the spoon so that each ball comes out in same-size balls.

    I tried a different recipe for the same looking cookies and was super disappointed. But this one is perfect, they come out crispy with a distinct coffee flavor. Highly recommend!
