How to make Buttery Orange Sandwich Cookies with Coffee Buttercream

  1. For the Buttery Orange Cookies:
  2. Take the maida, salt and baking powder in a bowl and mix with a spoon.
  3. Take the softened butter and sugar in a large bowl. Beat it with an electric hand beater for 5 to 6 minutes till pale and fluffy.
  4. Add the orange zest and beat for 30 seconds.
  5. Add in the egg and vanilla essence and beat for 30-45 seconds.
  6. Add the orange juice and beat for 30-45 seconds.
  7. Now add the flour mixture from the first step and just mix well with a spoon to form a soft dough. Do not beat or knead it.
  8. The dough should be soft but not liquidy. Cover the dough with a cling wrap and refrigerate for 1.5 hours.
  9. Once the dough is chilled, take it out from the fridge and let it rest for 10 minutes.
  10. Preheat the oven to 180 deg C for 10 minutes.
  11. While the oven is preheating, place the parchment paper on the baking tray. Grease the parchment paper with butter.
  12. Take about 1 teaspoon of the cookie dough and gently roll it between your palms to a ball. Just flatten it slightly without applying too much pressure.
  13. Repeat for the entire dough and arrange it on the parchment paper. Leave enough space between the cookies.
  14. Bake at 180 deg C for 12 to 15 minutes till the cookies are brown. They should not be too soft to touch. Keep an eye after 12 minutes. Do not burn the cookies.
  15. Place the cookies on plate and let them cool down.
  16. For the coffee buttercream:
  17. To prepare strong coffee, take 2 teaspoon of instant coffee powder and 1/2 cup of water in a bowl. Let it boil for 3 minutes.
  18. Take the softened butter in a bowl and beat with electric hand beater for minutes.
  19. Add the icing sugar in two batches and beat for 1 minute each time.
  20. Add the chocolate essence and beat for 30 seconds.
  21. Add the strong coffee and beat for a minute.
  22. The buttercream will be of spreadable consistency.
  23. Take one of the cookies, place a teaspoon or so of the coffee buttercream on the bottom of the cookie.
  24. Take another cookie and gently place it on the buttercream side of the first cookie. If there is any excess buttercream on the sides of the sandwiched cookie, smoothen it with your fingers.
  25. Repeat for all cookies. Arrange on a plate and dust with icing sugar.

My Tip:

1. Before applying buttercream on the cookies, make sure the cookies are cool. Otherwise the buttercream will melt. 2. If the cookies are still soft after cooling down they are not cooked enough. Bake for another two minutes. 3. The cooking time depends on the thickness of the cookies too. So if you make them thick it will take more time to cook. 4. Once the cookies are done, a beautiful orangey smell wafts around your home giving an indication that the cookies are done :)
