This dough freezes well if you seal the log in plastic wrap. The night before you’re ready to bake, transfer the dough to the refrigerator to defrost.
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- Pinch ground cinnamon
- Pinch salt
- 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 1/3 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon instant coffee or espresso powder, dissolved in 2 teaspoons coffee-flavored liqueur or water
Combine the flour, cinnamon, and salt. In a large bowl, beat the butter and brown sugar with a wooden spoon or a mixer until well blended; stir in the dissolved coffee. Add the flour mixture; mix until the dough is blended and begins to clump together (if you’re using an electric mixer, set it on low speed). Pile the dough onto a large piece of plastic wrap. Using the wrap as a guide, shape the dough into a squared log, 7 inches long. Chill
until quite firm, at least 6 hours and up to 3 days.
Heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Cut the dough in 1/4-inch
slices; set them 1 inch apart on parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake until the tops look dry and the edges are slightly browned, about 12 minutes Transfer to a rack to cool completely.
