Cinnamon Clove Coffee Cookies

Cinnamon Clove Coffee Cookies

As I mentioned this week, this holiday season has seen no shortage of cookies.  But, really, what would the holidays be without cookies?  All kinds of cookies – even cookies with cloves!

When Katrina started rounding up participants for her second-annual I’ll Bring the Cookies event, I was so excited to join.  But I had no idea which cookies to bring – especially with so many amazing bakers joining in.  So I took a deep dive back to my early teen years and created a cookie that has a fun story behind it – Cinnamon Clove Coffee Cookies.  Don’t be turned off by the name.  Most people turn up their noses a bit but I promise your holiday senses will be heightened after you have one of these!

This recipe is heavily based on some toffee coffee cookies that I made a while back – the base is a sweet, chewy cookie dough and I just changed up the add-ins here.  Don’t be fooled by the cloves – they’ll be the perfect match for the cinnamon and coffee and will definitely smell & taste like Christmas!

    I LOVE cloves!! And coffee and cinnamon, but cloves are so under-used in baking. Thanks for representing :)

    Coffee is my favorite unexpected cookie ingredient! I could go for one (or three) of these cookies right about now.

    These sound wonderful and such a great story. What part of Kansas were you from? I went to KU and then lived in KC for several years after college. I loved it there but decided I needed to go back home. I may know your parents if they went to KU.

      What a small world! I live in KC now…my parents are from SE Kansas…Fort Scott/Pittsburg area which is where we have all graduated from college too. I love meeting people from this area!

    What an interesting combination. I agree — your house must smell fantastic!

    jacquie — December 19, 2012 @ 9:57 pm

    those look great. one doesn’t see many recipes which feature the taste of cloves and is a spice i like. however i’m not big on coffee in baked items mainly because i don’t don’t have it around – is there something else i can use?

    • Cassie replied: — December 20th, 2012 @ 8:53 am

      Hi Jacquie, you can just leave it out if you wish. You could add some nutmeg or cloves for added holiday spice!

    These sound interesting! I’ve often wondered why there are no “cinnamon cookies” but now the world has cinnamon clove coffee cookies. Sounds even better, I think. :)
