Pumpkin Spice Cappuccino Cookies

This year hasn't started off with a bang for me...more of a fizzle. You see where I live there is this thing they call "cedar fever." Sure we don't have twenty below temperatures or three feet of snow in our front yards but guys, cedar sucks! It's like living with a forever cold, it's totally zapped my energy, but I was craving cookies. Sometimes even if you're a little under the weather you just can't fight a craving! I think they actually did me some good. :)

I had a big bag of cappuccino mix sitting in my pantry that just wasn't getting used and I think I made a good decision throwing some into these cookies. It gives them a great spicy flavor base, and add the cinnamon chips and pecans and you have one great comforting cookie. Now I used a pumpkin spice mix, but if you or not a fan or have a different kind on hand, try a different flavor and play with the mix ins.

Pumpkin Spice Cappuccino Cookies
1 1/4 cups flour
1 cup cappuccino mix (I used pumpkin spice by Douwe Egberts, use your favorite flavor)
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, room temperature
1 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs, room temperature
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 cups rolled oats
1 1/2 cups cinnamon chips
1/2 cup pecans (would have added more, but that’s all I had on hand)

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat liner.

2.  In a medium size bowl whisk together flour, cappuccino mix, baking soda, and salt; set aside

3.  In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment or in a large bowl using a hand mixer cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

4.  Add in eggs one at a time, followed by the vanilla extract.

5.  Mix in flour mixture, and then stir in oats, cinnamon chips and pecans.

6.  Drop tablespoons of dough on prepared cookie sheet and bake in preheated oven for 9-12 minutes.


  1. These coffee flavoured cookies look wonderful, Kristin. I wish I could get some cinnamon chips over here.
