- 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.

Reviews for Cappuccino Flats
"Very good! Perfect fall/winter flavor. I don't cook with shortening so I used 1/2 cup coconut oil instead. I also added 1 tsp of corn starch to the flour mixture so that the cookies will stay soft. I also used just melted chocolate chips for the "glaze" and dipped the tops of the cookies. Rather than rolling the dough and chilling for 4 hours, I just gently folded the dough into a ball of sorts in the mixing bowl and chilled for about an hour and a half, then used my cookie scoop to put the balls of dough onto the baking sheet and baked at 350 for 10 minutes. Will definitely make these again as it gets cooler."
"Love the flavors! This is a nice cookie to make ahead of time - mix, shape & refrigerate one day and then slice & bake the next. I dipped half of my batch in white chocolate just to change it up a bit. Great Recipe!"
"If you love the combination of coffee and chocolate, you will love these. They are so delicious and look just like the picture. Easy to make but so impressive."
"Absolutely one of my favorites. A sure winner!"
