Coffee pastries

Ingredients: 200gr white flour, 110ml vegetable oil, 40gr sugar, 1 tsp soluble decaf coffee, 40gr Ener-g (equal 2 eggs), 1 tbsp baking powder, fine powdered sugar for decoration
In a bowl mix sugar and Ener-g with 80ml of water. Work the mixture with a fork until it becomes soft and creamy without lumps. Add coffee, flour, baking powder and oil. Work again until you it gets soft and homogeneous. Take two spoons and a put a bit of the compost in one of it. Help yourself with the other spoon, working the compost to create a drop-shaped pastry. Repeat until you get the right shape. No hurry, it just takes a bit of practice and time. Arrange the drops on a oven tray covered with oven paper or slightly oiled. Cook in a pre heated oven for 15 minutes at 180 C. (350F)Leave it to cool and decorate them with fine powdered sugar. You will get about 12 pastries that will be eaten in about 12 seconds!

This is an interesting recipe. Do they turn out like English scones or are they more soft like an American cookie?

neither :) these are lighter than scones and are not cookies. its more like of an italian pastry :) the key is not to let them overcook so they remain soft even the day after. try and let me know :)
