Another cookie recipe courtesy of Pinterest...

Vanilla Latte Cookies
Adapted from Sugarcrafter

1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 Tbsp. espresso powder*
3 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon**
2 cups all-purpose flour

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat.  In a large bowl, beat the butter on medium speed until smooth.  Reduce the mixer speed and add the powdered sugar, espresso, vanilla and cinnamon.  Mix thoroughly.  Add the flour and beat until combined.  Roll the dough into 1″ balls and place them 2″ apart on the baking sheet. Press the cookies slightly to flatten.  Bake about 12 minutes or until the edges are set. Transfer to a wire rack to let cool. 

*  We used the finely ground coffee that gathers at the top of the coffee grinder box.
** I used Roasted Saigon Cinnamon.  Awesome stuff.

The original recipe says that you can store the cookies at room temperature for up to 3 days in an airtight storage container.  There is absolutely no way that they would last that long in this house.  You can, also, freeze for up to 3 months.   That will be the only way that I could keep any here.   They were seriously so good.

Thanks so much for stopping by,


  1. I've seen coffee in a lot of chocolate cookies, but never in vanilla! This is a definite need-to-try.

  2. I never would have guessed there was coffee in these...they're so light! I think I'd love them :D

  3. Mmm, these look tasty! I'm always looking for new cookie ideas around the holidays. Thanks for sharing. And, thanks for stopping by!

  4. Ok.. make sure to keep these cookies very far away from me... I could eat all of them in one sitting! The look lovely and they sound absolutely delicious!

  5. Oh wonderful wonderful idea for a cookie! Latte in a cookie- best of both worlds. Great recipe Candace now if only I had one right now at my fingertips!

  6. These look pretty good, Candace, but I think I'll wait until my body forgets the pumpkin pie and ice cream I ate yesterday. lol :-(

  7. Gosh those sound delish! What a great idea to use the finely ground coffee off of your coffee grinder. Very smart.

    Hugs sweet friend,

  8. I'm so glad you enjoyed the cookies! Yours came our lovely, and I love your idea of using roasted saigon cinnamon!

  9. Those look good...I don't have a coffee grinder..where do I find expresso powder?
    Do you still have snow on the ground?...gee, I'm full of questions...! Love You, Auntie M

  10. Delicious cookie, love the coffee in them.

  11. YUM! looks really good, Candace

  12. Humm, you know I like my coffee, I may just have to give these a try! Look and sounds so good! Hope you are well...it's been a busy 5 days, but life is slowing down again....Big hugs, Leah

  13. It's amazing that these contain coffee, but they're so light colored. They certainly look like the type of cookie I could eat a dozen of in one sitting. :)
