Cappuccino Flats

I found a wonderful coffee cookie recipe that is just Amazing. When Jacqueline Cline wrote into "Taste of Home" about them she said that "people can't believe they're made in my own kitchen instead of a gourmet bakery!" These cookies are just that good and more. If this sounds great to you how about you try Cappuccino Flats. This recipe makes about 4 1/2 dozen cookies.

Here is what you need:
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon instant coffee granules
  • 1 teaspoon really warm water
  • 1 egg
  • 2 squares that are 1 oz each of unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3 tablespoons shortening
Here is what you do:
  1. Get out a large mixing bowl and cream together the butter, shortening, and sugars.
  2. Dissolve the coffee in water and add to the mixture with the egg and melted squares.
  3. Mix this together. Gradually add the flour, cinnamon, and salt while mixing between additions.
  4. Shape into 6 1/2 inch rolls. Wrap each roll with plastic wrap.
  5. Refrigerate for 4-6 hours or until firm.
  6. Unwrap the rolls and cut into 1/4 inch slices. Use Flour to help separate.
  7. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 350degrees F for 10-12 minutes or until the cookies are firm.
  8. Cool on Wire Racks. While cooling melt the chocolate chips and shortening together using a saucepan to ensure great color do not burn.
  9. Dip each cookie halfway in the melted cholate chips and shortening.
  10. Place on wax paper or tin foil to harden.
Enjoy your Cappuccino Flats!
