Coffee/Spice Drop Cookies

This is adapted from my grandmother’s Betty Crocker cookbook from the 1950’s. A good way to use up leftover coffee.

Difficulty: Easy

Servings: 5-6 dozen

Prep Time: 5 min   Cook Time: 8-10 min  


1 c soft shortening
2 cups brown sugar (or part white)
2 eggs
1/2 cup cold leftover coffee
3 1/2 cups sifted flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt (or less)
1 teaspoon each nutmeg and cinnamon


Mix shortening, sugar and eggs thoroughly.
Stir in cold coffee.
Sift dry ingredients, add and stir in.
Chill dough if you have time.
Drop heaping teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart on lightly greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Watch them, they burn easily.
Makes about 5-6 dozen, depending on size.
