Mexican Chocolate Cookies
Hints of warm spice and heat elevate the chocolate flavor in these unique cookies.
Why This Recipe Works
To pump these crisp but fudgy cookies with chocolate flavor, we used a hefty amount of Dutch-processed cocoa powder. Cinnamon, cayenne pepper, and black pepper gave the cookies just the right amount of contrasting spiciness. We found that rolling the logs of dough in cinnamon sugar before slicing them gave each cookie jewel-like edges after baking.
