White Chocolate Cappuccino Cookies

White Chocolate Cappuccino CookiesIf I was randomly deserted on an exotic houseboat in Amsterdam, I think I’d be quite the happy bubblybaker. But unfortunately life doesn’t always go as planned and I am stuck here in Melbourne instead. On the flip side however, I get to enjoy the one thing that Melbourne does do extremely well – Coffee: Bitter, sweet, aromatic coffee.

The coffee is so good here that even Pocky loves the occasional sip of it (ok, so caffeine may not be the greatest beverage for our four legged friends, but Pocky is pushing 15 human years on Earth and he’s still alive and kicking… so it couldn’t have been too bad of a thing, right…? Anyway, this is a dog that loves carrots and durian  as much as his Smackos, so let’s not be too surprised here 😛 )

White Chocolate Cappuccino CookiesAnyway a few years ago I stumbled across this recipe on Joy the Baker‘s amazing blog, and I am pretty certain that that was the day I experienced love at first sight.  A recipe that called for coffee and chocolate?! Yep, excuse me while I use my right hand to gently close my gaping jaw.

White Chocolate Cappuccino CookiesThese baked goodies are absolute perfection in a cookie. Pending on how long you bake them for, you can achieve a crunchy outer and a soft, chewy centre. Or, if you’d prefer all crunch, you can bake them for extra longer and achieve just that. Similarly, take them out of the oven early and you’d be blessed with a super soft coffee and white chocolate delight.

If you are a coffee lover and chocoholic like myself, then these cookies may or may not be your best friend. Don’t say I didn’t warn you 😛

White Chocolate Cappuccino Cookies

White Chocolate Cappuccino Cookies
Recipe taken from Joy the Baker
Makes about 24 cookies

225 grams of unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
2 tspns pure vanilla extract
2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tspn baking soda
1 tspn salt (I added 1.5 tspns of salt in total to achieve a saltier cookie)
3 tblspns instant coffee powder (I used Moccona Coffee Granules)
1 cup white chocolate chunks

– Place racks in the center and upper third of the oven and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
– Set aside and we’ll preheat the oven after we chill the dough.
– In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt and instant coffee.
– In the bowl of a stand mixer fit with a paddle attachment, beat together butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 3 to 5 minutes.
– Stop the mixer and scrape down the butter mixture with a spatula.
– Add the egg and egg yolk and beat on medium speed until mixture is fluffy, about 1 to 2 minutes.
– Beat in the vanilla extract.
– Stop the mixer and add the dry ingredients, all at once to the butter mixture.
– Beat on low speed until just combined.  Stop the mixer, add the chocolate chunks and fold together with a  spatula until well combined.
– Cover the dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 45 minutes.
–  When you are ready to bake, preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.
– Scoop cookie dough by the heaping tablespoonful onto the prepared baking pans.
– Bake for about 12 minutes, until lightly browned around the edges.
– Remove from the oven, allow to cool on the baking sheet for about 10 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
– Store cookies in an airtight container.  Cookies will last several days.

Enjoy 😀

  1. these look perfect! i have half of a bag of unused white chocolate chips that are begging to be made into this!

  2. White chocolate&cappuccino? Mmmm .. sounds like my dream cookie! If you don’t mind I’ll use that recipe…

    • Of course not Irena – definitely give it a go. It’s super easy too – the only frustration is having to refridgerate it for that half hour, but after that everything is super easy 🙂
      Looking forward to seeing it on your blog! x

  3. Those look and sound heavenly, thanks for sharing!

  4. Haha, this blog post made my day.

  5. Those look amazing! 🙂 Coffee makes everything better!

  6. I know…life always surprises us, huh. I don’t mind to get stuck with some coffee though…and these White Chocolate Cappuccino Cookies! They look totally decadent and delicious. I can’t probably finish the whole batch in no time!

    • Hi Amy,
      Yes – these cookies are absolutely evil! I wouldn’t recommend sitting in front of a whole batch of these… it’ll be too difficult to stop at one! 😛
      Thanks for dropping by and your comment 🙂

  7. I really love this post as your pictures are making me hungry! =D

  8. Oh my gosh, these are too cute! I’m not much of a coffee person, but chocolate, on the other hand… 🙂 And you named your dog Pocky! Hahaha, best name EVER!

    • haha yeah unfortunately Pocky was named during my Pocky obsession a few years back 😛
      You could probably omit the coffee in this recipe for say… Milo.. ? Sounds possible in theory lol – if you do end up doing that you must let me know how it goes 🙂

  9. I LOVE that you named your dog Pocky. That was my absolutely favourite treat in the whole world when I was growing up. I’d go to Chinatown with my parents every Saturday morning to help haul home heavy bags of groceries. If they were in a generous mood, they’d buy me a box of either Strawberry or Chocolate (back before there were dozens of different speciality flavours). As for these cookies – amazing! I love the combo of white chocolate and cappucino. Your photos are lovely as always.

    • Thanks so much Nancy 🙂
      And I was exactly like you! If I was lucky enough I’d be rewarded with a box of Pocky for all that heavy grocery bag hauling too – either that or it was a small tub of choc or strawberry Yan Yan … yummo! haha Oh the joys of being young and not having any other worry in the world beside which flavour Pocky / Yan Yan to get 😛

  10. Mmmm i hope i can make these soon – they look so good! 🙂

    • Thankyou so much for your comment Cookin’Cowgirl 🙂 You should definitely make them soon – just make sure you have plenty of people around to share them with as it’s difficult to stop at one! 😛
      P.s. – love your username! 🙂

      • Your welcome! 🙂 – Yes i am hoping to make them very soon and i guess i will have to have all the kids come try them when i do! 😉
        P.S – i love my username too! it was so hard deciding what fit, but then all of the sudden it just hit me! lol!
        Cheers! 🙂
