Cappuccino Cookies Dipped in Dark Chocolate

Diff: Medium    Prep: 35 minutes + 4 hr. refrigeration

Cook: 10-12 minutes     Makes: 3-4 dozen



  • ½ cup butter, softened

  • ½ cup shortening

  • ½ cup sugar

  • ½ cup packed brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon instant coffee granules

  • 1 teaspoon warm water

  • 1 egg

  • 2 squares, (1 ounce each) dark chocolate,

    melted and cooled

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon ground Vietnamese cinnamon

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • 1 ½ cups dark chocolate chips or chunks

  • 3 tablespoons shortening



  • In a mixing bowl, cream together butter, shortening and both sugars.

  • Dissolve coffee into water; add to creamed mixture along with the egg and melted chocolate. Mix well.

  • Combine flour, Vietnamese cinnamon and salt and add gradually to creamed mixture.   Dough will be sticky.

  • Shape into two 6½ inch rolls; wrapping each tightly with plastic wrap.

  • Refrigerate for four hours or until firm.

  • Taking one roll out of the refrigerator at a time, unwrap and cut into ¼ inch slices.

  • Place cookie slices 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.

  • Bake at 350°F for 10 to 12 minutes or until firm to touch.

  • Remove cookies to wire racks to cool.

  • While cookies are cooling, melt the chocolate chips and shortening together in a double boiler or small saucepan over very low heat.

  • Working quickly, dunk each cookie halfway into melted chocolate, then either scrape (with a knife) or shake off the excess.

  • Place on waxed paper until hardened.

  • Store in layers divided by wax paper in a sealed container.



Until next week, wishing you all of God’s blessings, good health and happy eating!
