Jalapeno Pepper Cookies

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Jim4227

I know, I know, I thought the same thing when my mom told me we were having them Christmas Eve. I WAS WRONG!!!! THESE THINGS ARE FANTASTIC!!! She did cut the jalepenos to one. My wife doesn't like jalepenos or hot things-LOVED THESE!!! Really, give them a try. They also keep in the freezer-how convenient! I served the second half at my house 2 days later.

Did you forget flour? Mine came out oozy like melted cheese, though I used panko for the coating. I had real Parmesan, so maybe there's a canned cheese that has fillers and would firm these up. Pretty with the minced jalapenos, but you have to taste the peppers before using. My two added no flavor. Still looking for a great cheese cookie to keep in the freezer and bake last-minute. Thanks very much for your ideas.
