Cappuccino cookies

cappuccino cookies

I have a confession to make: I’m not a big fan of cookies.

There. I said it. You can all abandon me now – please don’t! πŸ˜‰

I like biscuits a lot, though! I make cookies because I’m lazy sometimes. Well, I’m lazy most of the time but I only make cookies when I’m feeling REALLY lazy πŸ™‚

CAPPUCCINO COOKIES
(adapted from Dorie Greenspan’sΒ Baking, From My Home to Yours)
yields about 36 cookies

INGREDIENTS
150 g flour
30 g cocoa powder
Β½ tsp bicarb
140 g butter, at room temperature
150 g muscovado sugar
50 g sugar
ΒΌ tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
100 g cappuccino buttons (chips, drops or whatever you call those chocolate buttons that melt :P)

METHOD
Beat butter for about 2 minutes with an electric mixer until it gets paler and creamy. Add sugars, salt and vanilla and beat again until it gets fluffy. Sift in flour, cocoa and bicarb and mix at low speed just until combined. Add the cappuccino buttons and stir with a wooden spoon.
Line 3 baking trays with parchment and drop the batter using a small ice cream scoop, allowing them some room to spread. Let them sit in the fridge for 3 hours (or up to 2 days – alternatively, you can freeze them).
Preheat oven to 180Β°C and bake them for about 12 minutes – they will look underdone, don’t worry, that’s the way they should look like. Leave them to cool on the trays for about 5 minutes before taking them to a wire rack to cool completely.

  1. I’m not fond of cookies, either, for some reason, unless it chocolate cookie.. no, not just with choco chips..,, I like the Oreo kind without the filling.

  2. These look delicious Erika! Not sure I’m familiar with cappuccino buttons… I’m assuming they’re small chocolate-like chips flavoured with cappuccino?

    • That’s it, Lidia! Some people asked me about it and I was not sure if I could call it chips because they do melt and the chocolate chips I use don’t. What do you call the ones that don’t melt?

  3. Hmmm. Good question. Chocolate chunks? Although my chips don’t really melt, I think I know what you mean. They’re like my white chocolate buttons or drops from Callebault.
