I LOVE the cinnamon and chocolate combo. I've actually been adding cinnamon to most of my chocolate cookies for years. This is a very nice recipe.

Instead of instant coffee granules you could use instant espresso powder. But, you will need to bvary the amount you use because the instant espresso powder is stronger than the coffee granules.But, I must say we have not tested the recipe using instant espresso powder at this time. Also, sometimes cinnamon is part of a cappuccino but if you do not care for that flavor it would be fine to leave out of the recipe and it should be just fine.

This just doesn't work. The combination of cinnamon and chocolate isn't good. Why isn't espresso used in this recipe? If a cookie is called "Cappuccino Crinkles" there should be espresso involved. Will not make again.

This was no winner. Cinnamon just doesn't work here. Awful.

This was a light, easy cookie to make. Not overly sweet, but just enough sweetness to make it a wonderful cookie to have along with a cup of coffee or tea. I highly recommend this recipe!
