  • 2 cup + 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 12 tbsp. unsalted butter, softened
  • ¾ cup brown sugar, lightly packed
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. cornstarch
  • 2.5 tablespoons instant coffee espresso
  • Pinch of salt


  • 1 cup mascarpone, room temp
  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/32/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 23 teaspoon instant coffee espresso


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Line large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. 
  2. In a medium bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, cornstarch, salt and instant espresso powder. Set aside.
  3. In a mixer bowl, add the butter and sugars. Beat on medium speed for 3 minutes or until combined.
  4. Add the egg, egg yolk and vanilla extract. Beat on medium/high speed for 3-4 minutes or until the mixture is combined and fluffy. 
  5. Add the flour mixture. Beat until flour has incorporated into the dough. 
  6. Using a cookie scoop, scoop cookie dough and place about 2 inches apart on prepared parchment paper. 
  7. Bake for 10 minutes or until cookies are lightly golden brown around the edges. Do not over bake!
  8. Cool completely before frosting.

Mascarpone frosting

  1. Beat heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form then set aside. 
  2. Beat mascarpone cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla extract and instant espresso powder until combined. (Taste the frosting, and add more coffee/powdered sugar if needed)
  3. Fold in heavy whipping cream until combined. 
  4. Pipe frosting onto cookies then sprinkle with cocoa powder. 


    • Don’t over bake cookies. You’ll want to bake the cookies until the edges are golden brown but the middle will look slightly underdone.

    • Adjust the coffee in the frosting. You can add more or less coffee depending on how you like it. The recipe will have a hint of coffee in the frosting. If you want a stronger coffee flavor, add more.

    • Make sure to measure the flour correctly. You’ll want to use a spoon to spoon the flour into the measuring cup and the leveling it with a knife. Adding to much or too little flour will change the texture of the cookies.
