Chili Chocolate Cookies (finished)

(She bakes?? Yes, she does.)

Two amazing things I have found over the last couple of months:

1. Martha Stewart's Cookie Cookbook

2. This blog about a delightful young woman that is cooking all of the cookies in the aforementioned cookbook

On this blog that I love so much, not long ago, was showcased Martha's Milk Chocolate Cookies. The blogger suggested that this would be a wonderful type of recipe to build upon, and she mentioned adding chili powder. I have not been able to think of anything else since then (cookie wise). I LOVE the combination of dark chocolate and chili with a hint of cinnamon. So I bravely altered this recipe to the utter delight of my palate.

And of course, I took pictures:

The scoop

Shh... don't be scared little drops of dough, it'll only hurt a little bit, and then you'll all be delicious cookies.

They're done, want a bite?

Now isn't your existence validated?

Follow the above link for the original recipe and then use my modifications.

My modifications:

*I used dark chili chocolate (courtesy of Lindt) instead of milk chocolate (it has a lovely little kick to it)

*I added 1/2 tsp of cinnamon

--I think I could have used a bit more chili in the recipe, either a powder or paste form.... just needs a little more of a kick.
