    A.B. Hall's Note:

    If you’re looking for a chocolate cookie with a real kick, look no further. These cookies are a perfect marriage of chocolate and spicy. They are firm, but chewy-melt-in-your-mouth. For comparison, I lean toward “medium” heat when it comes to salsa. This recipe is adapted from an excellent food blog called Baking Bites.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 48

    Yield:

    dozen

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa, cinnamon, cayenne, salt and pepper.
    2. 2
      In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to cream the butter and sugar. Add the egg and vanilla and mix until light and fluffy.
    3. 3
      Slowly add the dry ingredients until they are fully blended into the dough and no traces of the flour mix remain.
    4. 4
      Divide the dough in two and roll each half into a log that’s 9 inches long. Wrap each log tightly in plastic wrap and place in the freezer overnight or a minimum eight hours (if you're not interested in baking the whole batch at once, the dough will keep up to six weeks in the freezer).
    5. 5
      Having been frozen, the dough will require a small amount of effort to cut through. With a sharp knife, cut 1/3” cookies from the dough. Bake at 375° F for 8-10 minutes or until edges are firm. Allow cookies to cool 30 seconds to a minute then transfer to a wire rack to cool.

      The flavor on these cookies is very nice, but I felt that the texture was drier than I would prefer in a cookie; even a little crumbly. I don't see myself making this recipe again. I did up the cayenne by 1/4 of a tsp and that provided a great level of heat.

      Spicy! Well, not too spice, but just like the description says a perfect marriage of chocolate and spicy. The texture is also perfect, I loved these cookies! Thanks for posting A.B, Hall. Made for PAC fall 08.
