I have some fun new treats to share today. I’m sharing my new recipe for cappuccino cookies, aka “trouble for all cookie and coffee addicts.” They are so tasty, soft, and filled with espresso flavor and cappuccino baking chips.
I stumbled onto some cappuccino baking chips a little while ago, in a kitchenware/bakeware store. I love those kitchen specialty store. They are quite dangerous to peruse for a foodie. My kitchen is full of cookware and gadgets, I have more than enough. Yet, I still love to go into these stores and walk around for an hour or so. You just never know when you stumble onto something unique. I found many little plates and silverware that I use in taking pictures of my recipes like that. And more recently, I stumbled on a line of flavored baking chips.
They had quite a few different flavors but the ones that caught my attention were cappuccino chips. Of course, being a coffee addict like myself, it’s not a surprise that my eyes filled with hearts at the first sight of this discovery. I immediately got a couple of bags, because one is just not enough when it comes to making cookies.
Asking my little man if he wants to help me bake cookies is like asking a child if they would like some ice cream. He was in the kitchen, on top of his little step stool, all ready to bake before I could even finish the sentence. The excitement that goes on in my kitchen when we bake cookies is indescribable. Yes, we both like cookies a lot.
He was watching the cookies bake the entire time they were in the oven. He’d get a little closer, and a little closer, and a little closer, until his nose was practically on the oven door. Finally the beep…the long awaited beep. But then we have to wait for them to cool because you only make that mistake once (or twice, or three times).
Finally, we could try the cookies. Boy, oh boy were they good. SO good in fact that I had to put them on the high shelf not just so the little man doesn’t steal them but also so that I get a little deterred from devouring the whole batch at once.
**Note: the amount of caffeine in each cookie is really small, if you are worried about that.**
