Cuisine: Mexican
Serves: Makes 12
 
Ingredients
  • **For the filling:
  • •2 TBSP instant coffee
  • •1 TBSP cream
  • •300 gr chocolate
  • **For the cookies:
  • •1 cup butter at room temperature
  • •2¼ cups flour
  • •3/4 cup sugar
  • •1 pinch of salt
  • **For the drizzle:
  • •1/4 cup chocolate
Instructions
  1. In a small pan over low heat mix cream and coffee and stir constantly until it blends perfectly. Set apart.
  2. Melt chocolate over double boiler and when it's perfectly melted remove from fire.
  3. Add the cream and mix well. The chocolate will brake and form lumps. Keep mixing until it can be worked with.
  4. Mix butter, flour, sugar and salt at medium high speed in a standing mixer.
  5. Roll out the dough over a lightly floured surface. Using a 3" cookie cutter cut rounds of the dough and place them on a greased baking sheet.
  6. Bake at 350°F for 10 to 12 minutes and let them cool before forming the garabatos.
  7. Turn half of the cookies upside down and spread about 1 TBSP of the chocolate on them using a pastry bag. Place another cookie on top and press with your fingers very lightly to seal them together.
  8. Melt the rest of the chocolate and drizzle over the cookies. This is what gives these cookies it's name, scribbles...
