Rich cinnamon mocha-flavored cookie that forms large cracks as it bakes.


  • 1/3 cup butter, at room temperature

  • 1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed

  • 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

  • 1 tablespoon instant coffee granules

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 2 large egg whites

  • 1/3 cup vanilla yogurt

  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar


  • Pre-heat oven to 350 F. Beat butter until light and fluffy; add brown sugar, cocoa powder, coffee granules, baking soda, and cinnamon. Beat until combined. Beat in egg whites and yogurt until combined. Stir in flour. Place granulated sugar in a small bowl. Form dough into 1-inch balls and roll in sugar. Place balls 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are firm. Allow to cool 2 minutes on baking sheet, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
