These are awesome! I reckon they are hotter when they are cold though! I did end up cooking for slighly longer, maybe 14 minutes. Perfect with a cuppa. A new personal favourite for me. Thanks Shaz!
We loved these cookies. I made them as directed and the flavors were just perfect. The texture of the cookie was also perfect. Loved the hint of the cayenne pepper. Thanks.
*Really* great cookies, I made these using all white flour, since we like extreme heat I increased the cayenne to 3/4 teaspoon which was just fine for our tastes, I will be making these again soon, thanks for sharing hon!...Kitten:)
