  • Preheat the oven to 375° F.
  • Beat the butter and shortening together on medium-high speed until creamy and smooth.
  • Add the sugar, coffee granules, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt; beat until well combined.
  • Beat In the egg and vanilla.
  • Add the flour gradually. Beat in with electric mixer unless dough gets too stiff. Stir in by hand if it gets too stiff for the mixer.
  • Combine the sugar and cinnamon; stir to mix evenly.
  • Form dough into 1-inch balls and then roll in the cinnamon and sugar mixture; place on cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
  • Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until the cookies are just starting to brown around edges. Cool on a wire rack.
FROSTING:
  • Beat butter and Irish cream liqueur together until smooth.
  • Gradually add the powdered sugar. If the frosting gets too dry as you are adding the powdered sugar, start adding a little of the half & half.
  • Once all the powdered sugar has been added, gradually add the remaining half & half. Add the half & half until the frosting is the desired spreading consistency.
  • Spread frosting on the cooled cookies and sprinkle the tops with a light dusting of the remaining cinnamon and sugar mixture.
