Cappuccino Snowtop Crinkles

What you will need: 
1/3 cup of unsalted butter - softened (not melted) (we use only Land o' Lakes)
1 cup packed light brown sugar
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (we like Hershey's Cocoa Powder)
1 tablespoon instant coffee granules (we like Starbuck's Via Instant Coffee)
1 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 egg whites
1/3 cup  low fat vanilla yogurt
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/3 cup granulated sugar

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix butter in a large mixing bowl using a stand or electric mixer at medium speed for about 30 seconds. Next add brown sugar, coffee granules, cocoa, baking soda and cinnamon. Beat until well combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Beat in egg whites and yogurt until well blended. Next beat in flour using mixer... beat in as much of the flour as  you can with the mixer. Towards the end, the mix will start to get too stiff to use the mixer and you may just have to add in the remaining flour using a wooden spoon and stirring well.

Place granulated sugar in a small bowl and set aside. Next take the dough by heaping teaspoons and roll into balls then roll into granulated sugar, coating each one well. Repeat with each ball. Place balls 2 inches apart on a "PAM For Baking" sprayed cookie sheet.

 Bake 10-12 minutes until the edges are firm and the top starts to look cracked. Once you remove from the oven -allow to cool well before placing into your cookie tin!!

Make about 32 cookies.
