I have a recipe to share. I've had a few kinds of chocolate with hot pepper, and I wondered I could make cookies with hot pepper. I didn't find any satisfying recipes online, so I took one for chocolate chocolate chip cookies and added spices on my own. I think they are the best cookies I've ever made. There's some zip at the end, so reduce the cayenne if you're not into that sort of thing.|
This is a half recipe, about two dozen cookies.
1 stick of butter, room temp
3/4 cup white sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 cup flour
3/8 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp kosher salt (1/8 tsp regular salt)
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (I used Ghirardelli)
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1/8 tsp ground clove
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1. Preheat oven to 350
2. In one bowl, mix the butter and sugar. Add the egg and vanilla and mix together. In another bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, salt, and spices. Mix the two ingredients together and add chocolate chips.
3. Drop about 1 tbsp balls onto ungreased cookie sheet, then bake at 350 for 12 minutes. Let cool on cookie sheet, then move to a wire rack.
