Cappuccino Thins Cookies

Pin It

 

When I started writing this post I realized that i had been making the original recipe of this cookie (with gluten) for 20 years- yikes!

These cookies have been one of everyone’s  favorites that has tried them over the years.  I have made them almost every holiday season, either in the original form or gluten free.

Some recipes need tweaking when you convert them from “normal” to gluten free.  I got lucky with this one because I don’t think I changed anything except for the kind of flour.  Some cookies and breads need the addition of more liquid or a little more egg or some xanthan gum to retain the original texture and “chew”.

This is one of the cookies that I included in the holiday gift baskets that I made for my husband’s top clients last year. 

I went ahead and made all of the cookies with my gluten free flour since that’s what I had.  It also gave me an excuse to convert a couple more cookie recipes to gluten free!

The flavor combination of chocolate and coffee is always good.  This cookie is not too sweet and has a firm but tender texture- not cakey at all.

Cappuccino Thins are a refrigerator cookie that you form into logs and chill, then cut into slices before you bake them.

This recipe makes between 5-7 dozen cookies, depending on the size you make them.

There is 2 cups of the gluten free flour mixturein these and only a total of 1 cup of sugar, so they are lower in carbs than a lot of other cookies!

This cookie ships well.  I just layered them in a square Tupperware type container with wax paper between each layer.

I shared the link to this recipe with another gluten free blog called The Gluten Free Homemaker.  Every Wednesday Linda has a blog feature called Gluten Free Wednesdays where other bloggers are able to link to recipes on their own blogs.  It is a very fun feature and a great way to find fun new recipes and new blogs.  Thanks Linda!

I also shared the link to this recipe with another gluten free blog called Simply Sugar And Gluten Free.  Amy has a blog feature every Tuesday called Slightly Indulgent Tuesdays where we can link to recipes on our blogs.  More fun sharing for all of us!  Thanks Amy!

I also shared the link to this post on another gluten free blog called The Sensitive Pantry.  Nancy put out a request for bloggers to share links to their GF cookie recipes because she is without an oven to bake with until the end of December.  I can’t imagine being without my oven during this season!

I shared the link to this recipe at Mouthwatering Monday which is on a blog called A Southern Fairy Tale.
