Instructions

Please note, I added Amazon affiliate links to make shopping easy. If you make a purchase through these links, I’ll make a small bonus at no extra charge to you:

Using a mixer, cream together the sugar and butter. If you don’t have a countertop mixer (aff. link), use a hand held electric mixer instead.
Next, in a separate small bowl, combine the eggs, vanilla, and coffee, mixing until fully incorporated.
In yet another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.
Now, add the egg mixture to the butter mixture, and mix until completely combined.
Then slowly add in the flour mixture, mixing until combined, being careful not to over beat.
Chill this dough for at least one hour, although it’s best to do so overnight.
When you are ready to bake the cookies, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
On a lightly floured solid surface, roll out the dough to about 1/2 inch thick.
Using a circle cookie cutter, punch out circles and place on baking sheet lined with either a silpat liner (aff link) or parchment. Use a spatula if the cookie rounds feel too flimsy.
Bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes, or until the edges are a light golden brown.
Then remove from oven and allow to cool completely before adding the icing.

Frosting Instructions

Melt the butter in a small saucepan on low heat.
Once the butter is melted, add brown sugar and heavy cream. Stir constantly over medium heat until sugar is dissolved.
Next, add the salt, stirring until combined.
Allow this mixture to bubble for about 2 minutes before removing from heat and allowing to cool (1 hour minimum).
Once cooled, slowly beat in powdered sugar 1 cup at a time, until you reach desired consistency.

Instructions for Icing Cookies

Using either an icing bag (aff. link) filled with frosting or a small spatula, frost one cookie, then top with another cookie to make a sandwich.
