My favorite espresso drink is a caramel macchiato.  We don’t have many places in our very small town that serve espresso and those that do are good for a fix but I have to drive an hour to get a good coffee.   So when I go out of town the first thing I do is stop at a coffee shop and grab a non fat caramel macchiato.  Yum!

Since I can’t get my favorite coffee drink at home I decided to use the flavors in the drink to make a cookie!  I love experimenting with flavors in my baking and Caramel Macchiato Cookies sounded like a winner to me.  I knew they would need to have espresso, vanilla, and caramel in them so they would taste just like the beverage.

I started with a sugar cookie mix.   That’s right, I used a mix and simply doctored it up to make the cookie I wanted.   I added in espresso powder and a healthy amount of vanilla.   Then I mixed everything together, rolled the dough into balls, and put them on my T-Fal AirBake Natural Large Cookie Sheet.   I love this cookie sheet because it is large, it cleans up easily, and the double layer technology enhances baking performance meaning better browning and no burning!   It’s a great baking sheet for those that make a lot of cookies.

I popped the cookies into the oven and waited.  When they came out I drizzled caramel sauce and melted chocolate over top.  I thought they looked really pretty and they certainly smelled like coffee.    I grabbed myself a small plate of the cookies along with a cup of coffee and headed to the table for a late night treat.
