'Tis the Season for French Vanilla Cappuccino Christmas Cookies

See also

I don't know about anyone else but I seriously like to start a winter day with a few Christmas cookies and a cup of vanilla cappuccino. Matter-of-fact, I like this so much I created a new Christmas cookie so I can now do both at the very same time.

What these new cookies are, are very buttery rich cookies laced with vanilla cappuccino. With each bite you will have the subtle taste of the coffee bean and when you look at them, you will see the faint flecks of coffee. If you love coffee, you'll love these cookies.

These are a very simple cookie to make at home. The only special ingredient you'll need is some french vanilla cappuccino instant coffee, which all markets carry in their coffee aisle.

Ingredients needed to make French Vanilla Cappuccino Christmas Cookies (amount depends on size):

  • 1 1/2 cups butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbs. vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup French Vanilla Cappuccino Instant Coffee
  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt


  1. Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicon sheet.
  2. Into a mixer with a paddle attachment, add the butter and sugar and beat until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the vanilla and egg and beat until smooth.
  4. Add the Cappuccino coffee and beat 3 minutes.
  5. Add the flour, baking powder and salt and beat until a dough forms.
  6. Using a cookie scoop (or by hand and formed into balls) place on the prepared sheet. Using your fingers, press down on the ball to slightly flatted.
  7. Place in the oven and bake 15 minutes or until lightly golden.
  8. Remove from the oven and let cool on a rack.
