I always make cookies for Manly's lunches.
I was bored of the typical Peanut Butter Cookies, Brownies and Chocolate Chip.
So,hopped on the Internet for something a little unique, and I found it in these cookies.
They are not as weird as they sound and I urge you to try them before judging them too harshly.
I didn't even get a chance to take a picture of them, that's how quickly they were devoured.
Chocolate Pepper Cookies
1 1/2 cup sifted all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teas. baking powder
1/4 teas. salt
3/4 teas. cinnamon
1/4 teas. allspice
1/4 teas. ground pepper
pinch of cayenne
3/4 cup of Dutch Cocoa
3/4 cup of butter
1 1/2 teas. vanilla
1 cup of sugar
Sift the dry ingredients together.
Cream butter, add vanilla and sugar and beat till smooth.
Add egg and combine.
Slowly add dry ingredients, mix till just combined.
Form logs and chill till firm.
Slice dough in 1/4 inch slices and place on parchment sheet lined cookie sheets.
Bake at 375 for about 9 minutes.
Let rest on sheet for about 2 minutes and then place on cooling rack.
Your overall taste is definitely chocolate, there is just a bit of spicyness that lingers on your tongue.
The Cookie reminds of a Mexican recipe, for they use a lot of chocolate along with spice.
Try them and let me know what you think.
Have a great Wednesday!
