Cappuccino Flats Recipe

These coffee-flavored cookies are so delicious most people can't believe they're made in my own kitchen instead of a gourmet bakery!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + chilling Bake: 10 min./batch + standing YIELD:27 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon instant coffee granules
  • 1 teaspoon warm water
  • 1 egg
  • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • GLAZE:
  • 1-1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3 tablespoons shortening

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, cream butter, shortening and sugars until light and fluffy. Dissolve coffee in water; add to creamed mixture with egg and melted chocolate until blended. Combine the flour, cinnamon and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well (dough will be sticky). Shape into two 6-1/2-in. rolls; wrap each in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 4 hours or until firm.
  • 2. Unwrap and cut into 1/4-in. slices. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until firm. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
  • 3. In a microwave, melt chocolate chips and shortening; stir until smooth. Dip each cookie halfway in chocolate; allow excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper; let stand until set. Yield: 4-1/2 dozen.
