Mocha butterballs

Mocha treats pack a punch

  • Print

Day 1 of the Free Press's 21 Days of Holiday Cookies features Mocha Butterballs. We will be publishing one cookie recipe every day -- Monday to Saturday -- till Christmas.

Berenice Keryluk of Winnipeg offers a family cookie recipe that her son requests every Christmas. These mocha treats are rich and tender -- a bit like Mexican Wedding Cakes -- but with a terrific jolt of chocolate and coffee.

Mocha butterballs

227 g (1 cup) butter, softened

125 ml (1/2 cup) sugar

10 ml (2 tsp) vanilla

10 ml (2 tsp) instant coffee

15 ml (1 tbsp) hot water

425 ml (1 3/4 cups) sifted all-purpose flour

60 ml (1/4 cup) cocoa

2 ml (1/2 tsp) salt

500 ml (2 cups) walnuts, finely chopped

Icing sugar

Preheat oven to 160 C (325 F). Beat butter, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy. Dissolve coffee in hot water and stir into butter mixture. Sift flour, cocoa, salt into butter mixture and blend until combined. Add nuts. Shape into 2.5 cm (1 inch) balls and place on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake about 15 minutes. Roll in icing sugar while still warm. Let cool and roll in icing sugar again. Can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature.
