This grown-up version of an Oreo-style biscuit will be a hit with coffee drinkers. Leave out the coffee, if you prefer.
Share recipe


  • 130g plain white flour
  • 2 tbsp cornflour
  • 50g cocoa powder, plus extra for dusting
  • 1 tbsp freshly ground coffee or instant coffee granules
  • ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 95g unsalted butter, softened (plus 150g, softened, for the buttercream)
  • 125g caster sugar
  • 1 tbsp milk or freshly brewed coffee
  • 350g icing sugar, for the buttercream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract, for the buttercream


Step 1

Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan/gas 4. Sift the flour, cornflour and cocoa powder into a large bowl and mix in the coffee and bicarbonate of soda.

Step 2

In a separate bowl, beat together the butter and sugar, by hand or using an electric whisk until light and fluffy. Add half the flour mix, beat until just combined, then add the remaining flour mixture and the milk or brewed coffee. Mix with a spoon until it starts to combine, then bring the dough together with your hands.

Step 3

Dust a board and the dough with cocoa powder, then roll out to 4mm thick. Use a 4cm biscuit cutter to cut out circles. Gather and reroll the offcuts as needed.

Step 4

Arrange the biscuits on a baking tray 3cm apart and bake in batches in the centre of the oven for 10 mins. Let them cool for a few mins before transferring to a wire rack; they’ll crisp up as they cool.

Step 5

Meanwhile, make the buttercream by beating the butter, icing sugar and vanilla extract until pale and creamy.

Step 6

When the biscuits are cold, spread buttercream onto the flat side of half of them (it’ll melt if they are warm), then top with the flat side of another biscuit. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
