Use this dough for a variety of recipes like our Chocolate Wafers or layered Neapolitan Cookies.
In a large bowl, sift together flour, cocoa powder, and espresso beans; set aside.
In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with paddle attachment, combine butter, sugar, and vanilla until creamy, 3 to 4 minutes. Working in additions, gradually beat in flour mixture, scraping down sides of bowl twice. Wrap in plastic; store, refrigerated, until ready to use.
