Cappuccino Crinkles

My dad gave me a Better Homes and Gardens cookbook when I was in high school, and I kept a few of the recipes.  This is, hands-down, my favorite thing from that book!

  • 1/3 c. butter
  • 1 c. packed brown sugar
  • 2/3 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 Tbs INSTANT coffee granules
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/3 c. low-fat vanilla yogurt
  • 1.5 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 c. granulated sugar

Preheat over to 350 F.

In bowl of stand mixer, beat the butter until softened.  Add brown sugar, cocoa powder, coffee granules, baking soda, and cinnamon. Beat until combined.

Beat in egg whites and yogurt until smooth.

Beat in flour last.

Place granulated sugar in small bowl. Drop dough by teaspoon into sugar and roll into balls.

Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake 8-10 minutes until edges are firm.  (Do not overbake! Top may seem soft, but they harden as they cool, so check the edges, not the top.)

Makes about 40.
