Coffee and Walnut Biscuits

Adapted & Modified from Nigella Lawson’s ‘How to Be a Domestic Goddess’.

The cookies is crispy at the edge, crunchy because of the walnuts and soft in the centre with a hint of coffee, so I would suggest adding more coffee. Not my favourite but if you like cakey cookies, try it!


  • 125g plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 100g unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 65g castor sugar
  • 1 tbsp instant coffee powder
  • 1 large egg, whisked
  • 100g walnut


  1. Bake the walnut in the oven at 150°C for about 10 mins until slightly brown. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line the baking sheet with baking paper.
  2. Sift the flour and baking powder together and set aside. In a bowl, beat the egg and coffee powder together until the coffee powder dissolved.
  3. Using a mixer (I used electric hand whisk), cream the butter and caster sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs mixture and mix well. Using a spatula, fold the flour mixture and walnuts into the batter. Do not overmix.
  4. Take a teaspoon of the dough and roll into a ball or just drop them onto the baking sheet using 2 teaspoon. Place it on the baking sheet. Bake for 12 minutes or until slighly brown, the color will deepen after a while. Set aside for 5 minutes before transferring them onto a wire rack to cool completely.
