Coffee Crunch Cookies Recipe from Coffee KindCooking Directions for Coffee Crunch

  1. Stir together the sugars, coffee and corn syrup in a large saucepan.
  2. Heat the coffee mixture over a low flame until the sugars are dissolved and the liquid is transparent.
  3. Turn the heat up to medium and bring the coffee mixture to a boil. Allow to boil until it reaches 290 degrees F. This is the soft crack stage. If you don't have a thermometer, dip up a bit of the syrup with a spoon and drop it into a glass of cold water. It should form threads that remain flexible after you remove them from the water.
  4. Remove the pan from the heat. Stir in the baking soda. The mixture will foam up and thicken like soft taffy.
  5. Turn the foamed sugar onto a parchment lined cookie sheet and spread thin. Allow to cool for at least an hour.
  6. Break up the candy crunch into pieces no bigger than a chocolate chip.

  2. Cream the butter with brown and white sugars until the mixture is light and creamy.
  3. Beat in coffee and coffee syrup (or coffee liqueur) until it is fully incorporated.
  4. Beat in the eggs one at a time until the batter is light and fluffy.
  5. Add flour mixture to egg mixture 1/2 cup at a time, beating well after each addition, until you have a stiff dough.
