  • Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cream the butter and powdered sugar in a bowl. Add the flour and salt and mix well to combine.
  • Roll the dough out with a rolling pin. (The dough will be crumbly like pie dough. Work it together with your hands until it rolls out.)
  • Cut the dough into circular shapes and place on baking sheet.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and cool.
  • For the ganache:
  • Heat a double boiler and add chocolate chips, heavy whipping cream, and instant coffee granules. Stir together until combined.
  • Dip one half of the cooled cookie into the ganache. Sprinkle sliced almonds over the chocolate half. Set aside to let the ganache set.


The chocolate may clump a bit when first melted. Slowly continue to add heavy whipping cream while the water is on a low boil and stir with a whisk for a few minutes and the ganache should become smooth.
