This recipe combines two of my favorite flavors: coffee and cinnamon. You can always find them on my holiday treat trays. —Cynthia Messenger, Mount Pleasant, South Carolina

Prep: 30 min. + chilling Bake: 10 min./batch

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup sugar, divided
  • 1 large egg
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons instant espresso powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 24 striped chocolate kisses

Directions

Beat butter, brown sugar and 1/4 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg, espresso powder and vanilla. In another bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt; gradually beat into creamed mixture. Refrigerate, covered, until firm enough to shape, about 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 350°. Mix cinnamon and remaining sugar. Shape dough into twenty-four 1-in. balls; roll in cinnamon sugar. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets.
Bake until lightly browned, 10-12 minutes. Immediately top with chocolate kisses, pressing lightly. Cool slightly on pans before removing to wire racks to cool. Yield: 2 dozen.


Test Kitchen Tips
  • Add the espresso powder with the eggs and vanilla instead of the flour mixture to ensure that it dissolves.
  • This dough is a little sticky, but it can be rolled into balls after chilling for an hour.
  • These cookies taste like a snickerdoodle with a hint of espresso.
