Cappuccino Crinkles (D, TNT)
Source: Unknown
Yield: About 32 cookies

1/3 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar, packed
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tbsp. instant coffee granules
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 large egg whites
1/3 cup vanilla yogurt
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar

Heat oven to 350°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.

Place granulated sugar in a small bowl. Drop dough by heaping teaspoons into sugar and roll into balls. Roll again in sugar.

Place balls 2" apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are firm. Transfer cookies to wire racks and cool.

Poster's Notes:
Do not substitute for the butter.

This is good if you have people over for coffee for a evening or after dinner.

A double rolling in granulated sugar makes these crackled cookies extra sparkly.
