Or as my boyfriend calls them: Pepper-doodles

Whatever you call them, they are really delicious cookies with a bit of a kick. I came up with the idea of these cookies after getting a chili infused chocolate bar at the store on a whim and fell in love. To me it screamed to be baked into a cookie, but I felt a traditional chocolate chip cookie wasn't exactly the right fit, instead I wanted a cookie that would complement the sweet and spicy chocolate without being too bland or overpowering. Cinnamon seemed to be the solution, playing off the distinct flavor combination of Mexican hot chocolate. So I set out to see if I could even make them, not knowing if they would be any good at all, and I am quite happy with the results. For those of you who aren't into spicy foods, these shouldn't be a challenge at all, the spice kicks in as a nice little after burn that really just makes your mouth tingle a bit.

Step 1: Ingredients and Equipment

1 1/2 cup of Sugar
1/2 cup of Butter, softened
1 teaspoon of Vanilla extract
2 Eggs
2 3/4 cup of Flour
1 teaspoon of Baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of Cream of Tartar
1/4 teaspoon of Salt
1 teaspoon of Cinnamon
a pinch of Cayenne pepper
2 bars of Chili infused chocolate (I used Lindt, but if you want to make this from scratch it is roughly 7 ounces)
2 teaspoons of Cinnamon
2 Tablespoons of Sugar
a pinch of Cayenne pepper

An Electric mixer, either a stand or hand mixer would work fine
A Chopping board
A Large knife
A Small extra bowl
Parchment paper or cooking spray

Tried these cookies out the other day and I must say they are pretty darn tasty. I'm a love or spicy and sweet foods and this was a great combination! I also found a new chocolate which i love, yummm. thanks for the instructable, :-)
