    cozycook's Note:

    They taste like normal chocolate cookies at first and then, the heat warms your tongue! Very addictive cookies. I wasn't sure how these would turn out, but I made them for the Christmas party this year and they were a huge hit!

      I LOVED the chocolate/cayenne pepper combination. I will definitely be making this recipe again.

      I did make some alterations that I wanted to note. First, I reduced the recipe to 20 servings, but for whatever reason, when I did that, the dough was far too dry. I added in an extra egg and that mostly solved the problem. In addition, I added a teaspoon of cinnamon for some extra spiciness, as well as a teaspoon and a half of vanilla.

      The reason I gave this 4 stars rather than 5 is although I loved the flavors, the texture didn't seem quite right-- I guess I was expecting a slightly chewier cookie, and these came out more on the light side. I might try using vegetable oil instead of butter next time and seeing if that produces more of a dense cookie.

      Great soft cookie with lovely afterglow in the mouth!!!! I did not have the patience to refrigerate for an hour. My cookies were little mounds, they did not spread like the other pics....maybe that's cause other people added a bit of milk. Next time I think I will omit the chocolate chips and roll the dough into a log in wax paper and slice them. I like doing this cause I just bake a few at a time and then I always have fresh cookies. I am also not tempted to each them all!!!

      I, being a bit of a bullheaded chef, did not follow the recipe. I did what I always do. I read it over, fell in love with it, got everything set up, then dumped everything into one bowl and stirred. And stirred. And stirred. It was very powdery. I sorta regret not having the patience to cream the sugar and butter. I solved it by adding a little water and a little milk, though.
      Since I needed them for my sister's event, which she had to be at in about two hours, I skipped the refrigeration step too. Amazingly, these turned out great. They're full of flavor, leave a delightful tingle, and are beautifully soft and warm. My little sister tried one, and immediately asked for another. She also demanded I make them again some time. Therefore, five stars from me, on behalf of us both.
