Cappuccino Flats

I have not tried this recipe, because no one else in my family likes coffee. I suppose I could make them without the coffee and cinnamon. But the recipe looks so good to me, and one of these days I'm going to try it! This might even be a good cookie dough to store in the freezer, to bake small batches as needed.

Cappuccino Flats (from Cookies for Christmas)

  • 2 oz. unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled
  • 2 c. flour
  • 1 t. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • 1/2 c. shortening
  • 1/2 c. butter, softened
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 1 T. instant coffee crystals
  • 1 t. water
  • 1 egg
  • 1-1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3 T. shortening
  1. Stir together flour, cinnamon, and salt.
  2. In a large mixer bowl, beat 1/2 c. shortening and butter until creamy. Add sugar and brown sugar; beat until fluffy. Stir coffee crystals into water until dissolved. Add coffee mixture, melted chocolate, and egg to butter mixture; beat well.
  3. Add flour mixture and mix well. Cover and chill about one hour, or until easy to handle. Shape into two 7-inch rolls. Wrap and chill for at least 6 hours or overnight.
  4. Cut into 1/4-inch slices. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350F for 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are firm and lightly browned. Remove and cool.
  5. Melt chocolate chips and shortening until melted. Dip one half of each cookie into chocolate mixture. Place on waxed paper to cool until chocolate is set. Makes about 55.

If you try this, let me know if it's as good as it sounds!

I'm linking up to Chocolate Friday at Stop and Smell the Chocolates!


  1. I am sharing along in the Virtual Cookie Exchange. I've been linking posts with my cookie recipes, plus internet friends and finds in my sidebar.

    Thank you! I couldn't find too many others sharing this year.


  2. Do you know how it would alter the recipe if I took the shortening out? I don't use it, so I am not sure if you could substitute butter or not...They sound good though because mu husband and I love coffee!

  3. These do sound so good! Will have to give them a try sometime. I put the link up for you!
