The cappuccino is hands down the most popular creamy coffee out there. A shot of espresso, steamed milk and milk foam, that’s it! That’s the secret behind one of the tastiest layered drinks in a barista’s repertoire. And although saying no to a warm cup of cappuccino is not easy, the famous drink is just the beginning.

Today we’re making cappuccino cookies, and we’re aiming for perfection. So, what’s the perfect cookie? Well, for starters, it should be effortless — otherwise, it’s just a pain. Who wants to spend hours making cookies that are gone in minutes?

That’s why the recipe below calls for only four ingredients. The perfect cappuccino cookies should also have a caffeine kick, so we’re adding some coffee in there. The rest is all about creaminess. So how to make the perfect cappuccino cookies? Let me know what you think about these.

The Perfect Cappuccino Cookies Recipe-2

What goes into the perfect cappuccino cookies?

Cappuccino cookies can be widely different. As long as they taste like cappuccino, everything goes. And when I think about a cappuccino, I think of creaminess, and for me, that’s a synonym with Oreos. That’s why I chose an Oreo base to give these cappuccino cookies a revamp.

The next thing you need is cream cheese. Did I mention these cookies are no-bake? If we’re making perfect cookies, you’ll surely appreciate not having to bake anything.

Finally, there’s the instant coffee or freeze-dried espresso, as it’s now called, and milk chocolate chips. Yes, our cookies will have the crunchiest chocolate layer ever.

Creamy, coffee-flavored and easy to make — that’s what I call perfection. 15 to 20 minutes is all you need to put together a large batch of these cookies, and they’ll be everyone’s favorite, that’s guaranteed.

What to serve with the perfect cappuccino cookies?

A cappuccino, of course! Or a latte, a mocha or a cafe con leche, your cookies, your rules. What matters most is who you share the cookies with. These are party-pleasing grown-up cookies with the creamiest core and the most thrilling coffee flavor. There’s no way around this; you’ll have to call all your friends over to try these beauties!
