Caramel Macchiato Cookies
These espresso-filled cookies are the perfect pairing for your morning cup of coffee!
Rich and creamy, these Caramel Macchiato Cookies are perfect for fans of this fabulous drink. If you aren't familliar with this famously sweet coffee drink, it's basically a caramel latte with a little bit extra espresso mixed in. Sound tasty? These cookies are basically a caramel macchiato in cookie form, and they are as delicious as they sound. The caramel and chocolate drizzle on the top makes these espresso cookies simply irresistible and gives them a rich and sugary finish.
From the Chef: Those specialty drinks at the local coffee shop are dangerously delicious. It's so easy to find an excuse to pop in before work or during a lunch break. Sometimes when I'm feeling the urge for a sweet coffee treat, I bake a batch of these cookies to keep near my desk, so I can munch on them all day long.
