I put hot sauce on just about everything so it was only a matter of time before I started craving my desserts with a little kick. Serve these delightful little ones with milk.
Chocolate Cayenne Cookies
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt, plus a pinch more for sprinkling
1 cup flour
2 teaspoons ground cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup canola oil
2 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
Combine dry ingredients. Add oil, eggs and vanilla. Stir until evenly mixed. Chill dough for 2 hours. Scoop into spheres of a size of your choice. (I aimed for a generous tablespoon.) Sprinkle lightly with sea salt. Arrange on baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees about 12 minutes.
