Delicious chocolate cookies. The cinnamon and ancho chili powder add a warmth to the cookie -- it does not lend heat, but rather depth of flavor that compliments the chocolate very well. Might add a bit more ancho chili powder next time and lessen the cinnamon just to experiment with the flavors. Made for My Three Chefs, June, 2012.
