Fudgy Cappuccino Crinkles Cookies

Anything that says "Cappuccino" in the title catches my eye. OK "Fudgy" catches my eye too. Crinkles is too close to Wrinkles and can't be good. But "Cappuccino" and "Fudgy" cancel that out. You have just had a glimpse inside my very busy head and its workings. Scary 'aint it.

These cookies are so good that you will forget all about my head and its workings.


1/3 cup butter, softened (no substitutes)
1 cup packed brown sugar
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tablespoon instant coffee granules
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (I love Saigon cinnamon)
2 egg whites
1/3 cup vanilla yogurt
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup powdered sugar

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
Beat butter in a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds.
Add the brown sugar, cocoa powder, coffee granules, baking soda, and cinnamon.
Beat until combined, scraping sides of the bowl occasionally.
Beat in egg whites and yogurt until combined.
Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer.
Stir in remaining flour with a wooden spoon. (My KitchenAid handled it just fine)

Cover and chill dough for 3 hours or until easy to handle. (try not to eat all the dough)
Place powdered sugar in a small bowl.
Drop dough by heaping teaspoons into sugar and roll into balls. (I use a melon baller for uniform cookie size.)
Place balls 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are firm.
Transfer cookies to wire racks and cool.

This makes 40 cookies. Do not eat 40 cookies. Put some in a container with wax paper between the layers and freeze. They defrost quickly for company and they are handily out of sight, out of mind.
Caution: Do not tell your husband there are cookies in the freezer. He will pull them out and consume half of them and leave the rest dangerously on the countertop for you to find.
