Coffee Pecan Biscuits Recipe

Ingredients:

1/2 cup pecans

2 teaspoon instant dry coffee powder

1 teaspoon hot water

1 1/4 cups self raising flour

1/3 cup castor sugar

125g butter

1 egg yolk

2 teaspoon cold water

3/4 cup pecans (extra)

Coffee Icing:

1.5 cups icing sugar

2 teaspoon soft butter

1 teaspoon dry instant coffee

3 teaspoon hot water

Method:

  • Blend or process nuts until fine. Dissolve coffee and hot water in cup. Cool. Sift flour and sugar into bowl, rub in butter. Stir in nuts, egg yolk, coffee mixture and enough cold water to make a soft dough. Turn dough onto lightly floured surface, knead lightly until smooth. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

  • Roll 2 level teaspoon of mixture into a ball, flatten slightly and place onto greased oven tray. Repeat with remaining mixture, allowing about 4 cm between biscuits. Bake in moderate oven for about 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Lift onto wire racks to cool. Spread biscuits with icing and top with extra nuts.

Coffee Icing:

  • Sift icing sugar into bowl, stir in butter and combined coffee and water. Add a little more hot water, if necessary to make spreadable.
