Looks like cigars, but delicious and tasty. Have a coffee cream inside and chocolate dipped on each end. Hope you enjoy!

  • In another bowl, combine melted butter and vanilla scrapings. Pour vanilla butter, egg whites and 1 tablespoon cream into well of dry ingredients. Mix until smooth. Fold in 1 1/2 ounces grated chocolate. Chill in refrigerator 2 hours or overnight.

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with waxed paper.

  • Make a stencil by using a utility knife to cut a 4 1/2 inch (11.5 centimeter) circle in the center of a flexible plastic lid. Place the stencil on the baking sheet and spread 2 teaspoons of batter inside circle; remove stencil. Make 3 circles on a baking sheet.

  • Bake in preheated oven 2 minutes, rotate pan and bake 2 minutes more, until golden. Working quickly, remove cookie from tray with a spatula and roll around the handle of a wooden spoon. Place rolled cookies on wire rack to cool completely. If cookies harden before rolling, return to oven for 30 seconds to soften. Repeat to use all remaining batter.

  • To make coffee cream: Beat together coffee liqueur and espresso powder until powder is dissolved. Beat in 2 1/2 cups cream and 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar until soft peaks form. Refrigerate 15 minutes.

  • Fill cooled cookies with coffee cream using a pastry bag fitted with a 3/8 inch round tip. Dip each end of filled cookies in grated chocolate. Serve at once, or store in an airtight container up to 3 days.

I have a trouble to rate this recipe because this is a recipe with a different reaction in my family. This recipe was a completely new thing for me to make so I want to write some tips. The recipe is not so difficult as seems. When you make the dough it will have a creamy consistency. Don t be afraid it must be creamy. It will become thick after refrigerating (I refrigerated for 3 hours). I made stencils (rounds) on a parchment paper with a pencil using a plate (10 centimeter). Then turn your parchment paper upside down otherwise the trace of the pencil can be on your baked cigar. Be sure to make a thin layer your cigars will look more beautiful and you will be able to put more filling inside. I baked the dough for 5 min and I think to rotate the baking sheet is useless. I rolled the dough without any problem tearing or sticking. I tried to use a wooden spoon but my cigar sticked to the spoon so I rolled just using my fingers. Believe me it is easy to roll. The filling was very tasty I use only 2 cups whipped cream. But we didn t like the dough so much. I expected the cigars will be dry like waffles for ice cream but the dough was soft similar to roulade dough. And I had a trouble to fill the cigar with the cream completely. I didn t use grated chocolate to dip the ends. Overall the recipe is unusual but in my opinion doesn t deserve a time and ingrediends wasted on it. Read More

These had great flavor but the cigar part didn't come out the way I thought it would they were a little too moist and sticky. The filling began to separate after 1 day. I'm not sure what I did wrong but they tasted good enough to try again! Read More

Time-consuming but worth it. The dessert overall is a great blend of coffee and sugar not overly sweet. I made the cookie shells and stored them then made the filling when I was ready to serve so that the cookie shell would remain firm and not soak up the cream filling. Like I mentioned it is time consuming but the finished product tastes wonderful. Read More
