I am a huge fan of sweet plus heat! Even though I've already got a recipe for chocolate cookies that use chili powder, I've still been experimenting to find a type I like even better. What I did was to take a page from some of my friends who love authentic Mexican food and fool around with cinnamon and red pepper instead. Loved it! Could even go heavier on the red pepper if you'd like.
Start with my recipe for Chewy Chocolate Cookies.
Add 1 t cinnamon and 1/4 t ground red pepper.
Reduce vanilla to 1 t
Use raw sugar on tops
