Cappuccino Cookies

When you don't have time for a cappuccino AND cookies, have a cappuccino IN cookies. Or have both and give a double espresso a whole new meaning.

Hey guys,

I'm taking a short break from blogging. But I'll be back in a few weeks with my chocolate and my coffee, my butter and my sugar, my salt and my olive oil and my blogging and my blathering. Because you now I'm obsessed, right?... Obsessed.

Until then, be good... but not too good.

Cappuccino Cookies
from Joy the Baker
Makes 12

115g unsalted butter, softened
70g brown sugar
70g  granulated sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
170g cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon bi-carbinate of soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 tablespoons instant espresso granules
1/2 cup white chocolate chunks

Line a baking tray with baking paper. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, bicarbinate of soda, salt and instant espresso granules.

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat together butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 3 to 5 minutes. Stop the mixer and scrape down the butter mixture with a spatula. Add the egg and beat on medium speed until mixture is fluffy, about 1 to 2 minutes. Beat in the vanilla extract. Stop the mixer and add the dry ingredients, all at once to the butter mixture. Beat on low speed until just combined. Stop the mixer, add the chocolate chunks and fold together with a spatula until well combined. Cover the dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 45 minutes.

Just before you’re ready to bake the cookies, preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.

Scoop cookie dough by the heaping tablespoonful onto the prepared baking tray. Bake for about 12 minutes, until lightly browned around the edges. Remove from the oven, allow to cool on the baking tray for about 10 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
