Everyone needs a cookie to dip into their coffee or milk. Us cookie dippers know the importance of a good cookie alongside your beverage of choice. How about a cookie that tastes just like your favorite coffeehouse drink to go with your cup of joe?
White Chocolate Cappuccino Cookies taste just like a white chocolate mocha but in cookie form! These delightful little sweets have cappuccino mix right inside and are topped with silky white chocolate. If you want to keep the coffee theme, you can even use a coffee mug-shaped cookie cutter!
The cookie dough is a delicious mix of softened butter, white and brown sugars, cappuccino mix, flour, and cinnamon. They give a warming sensation just like a good mocha latte. The cookies have a crisp, yet melt-in-your-mouth texture that works so well with a nice hot cup of coffee.
Once the cookies are baked and cooled, they are topped with decadent melted white chocolate. Since the main focus of the cookies is white chocolate, you’ll want to be sure to get great-quality white chocolate chips for the best flavor. Simply dip a cooled cookie into the white chocolate and allow it to harden before enjoying.
White Chocolate Cappuccino Cookies are the perfect little snack. They’re great for an at-home coffee date with your friends, for dipping into a cold glass of milk, or for a fancy tea party. Feel free to decorate your cookies with white chocolate for a decorative touch, or simply dip into the melted chocolate.
In a small bowl, whisk together the mocha cappuccino mix and the hot water. Stir until it creates a thick paste.
In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. With the machine off, scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula and mix again to fully incorporate. Then, mix in the cappuccino mixture and the egg yolk.
In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, cinnamon, and salt. Gradually beat into the butter mixture, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl periodically.
Remove dough onto a floured work surface. Divide in half and form into discs. Wrap both halves of dough in plastic wrap and allow to sit in the fridge to chill for at least 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. On a floured surface, roll out the dough into ¼-inch thickness. Using a cookie cutter or a knife, cut out your desired shapes. Place the cookies onto ungreased baking sheets.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the cookies are lightly golden brown on the edges. Remove from the oven. Allow the cookies to firm up on the baking sheets for 2 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
When the cookies are cool, melt the white chocolate chips in the microwave in 30-second bursts, stirring in between bursts, until melted. Dip each cookie halfway into the white chocolate and place it on a wire rack. Allow the white chocolate to harden before serving.
