Ahhh, cookies and coffee…….two of my favorite things.

Growing up, both sets of my grandparents lived next door to each other in the same neighborhood we lived in.  My parents actually met because they were neighbors.  My brother and I were pretty lucky kids, not only having all 4 grandparents so close by, but they were grandparents that loved to let us spend the night.  It’s where I learned how to play domino’s, count change, and make sugar popcorn.  It’s also where I was first introduced to coffee.

My parents and grandparents were all big coffee drinkers.  I remember grandma pulling out the red gingham mugs, filling them half full of coffee, then lots of milk to cool it off and a spoonful of sugar to sweeten it up.   She’d set us up at the table with a few Lorna Doones and my brother and I would dunk our cookies in our “coffee” for a special treat.

Now a days, I drink my coffee with just a touch of cream, and no sugar but I still LOVE to dunk my cookies in my cup of joe!

This past weekend I baked cookies that tasted just like they were dunked in coffee, and made my house smell like I walked into a Starbucks.   Made with instant cappuccino, and topped with white chocolate…….they are insanely delicious.

If you’re not a coffee lover………give them a try………this might be the way to learn to drink what all the cool kids are drinking {wink}

Cappuccino Cookies Recipe

Made with instant cappuccino, and topped with white chocolate these Cappuccino Cooies are insanely delicious.

Ingredients:

  • 6 Tablespoons instant cappuccino (I used Hills Brothers French Vanilla flavored)
  • 1 Tablespoon hot water
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg yolk, lightly beaten
  • 2½ cups all-purpose flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 8 ounces white chocolate
  • unsweetened cocoa powder or cinnamon, for dusting

Directions:

  1. Using a small bowl or cup combine the cappuccino and hot water (not boiling) stir to make a paste; set aside.
  2. Using a large mixing bowl, combine butter and sugar; beat until smooth and well combined, then beat in the egg yolk and cappuccino paste.
  3. Sift together the flour and salt, slowly add to mixture and beat until well combined.
  4. Halve the dough, shape into balls, wrap in plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour
  5. Preheat oven to 375°. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  6. Unwrap one of the balls of dough, and roll out 1/4" thick between 2 sheets of parchment or waxed paper. Cut out using 2½" round or square cookie cutter and place them on prepared cookie sheets one inch apart. (repeat with other ball of dough)
  7. Bake for 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Let cool on the cookie sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire racks, using a metal spatula to cool completely.
  8. After cookies have completely cooled, melt chocolate in microwave according to package directions. Spoon chocolate over cookies and spread using back of spoon.
  9. Dust with cocoa powder or cinnamon.

**addition to 20 mins prep, allow for 1 hour to chill dough

Without white chocolate topping, the cookie will remain crisp, and are just as delicious.

Topping the cookies with chocolate will yield a softer cookie with a crisp edge.

We enjoyed the cookies both ways, but with the chocolate was our favorite.
