It’s Christmas cookie week at my house, which means every person in my family is attempting to make as many cookies as possible in just 7 days. This year, I personally have 4 types of cookies lined up. I get to make my favourite, cappuccino thumbprints! This recipe gets used every year – at 10 years old, that’s a lot of thumbprints.
Since this is absolute favourite recipe, I’m including the full thing instead of a photo-by-photo process:
2 tsp instant coffee granules
2 tsp vanilla extract
2/3 cup butter
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350°F. Mix dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately. Mix together in an electric mixer. Form dough into 1 tsp balls and place on parchment paper lined baking sheet. With the end of a spoon, make “thumbprints” in the cookies. Bake for 12 mins, rotating the sheet halfway through. Remove from oven. While on the sheet, place 3 chocolate chips in each thumbprint. When melted, mix with a toothpick. Let cool on a wire rack.
If you want to hear a real long story, ask my mom about the time I put baking soda instead of baking powder in the cookies…
The cookies are already almost gone, but I’m sure we’ll make some more soon. The finished project:
