Some of the Best Cookies You Will Eat

I’m Kate, and I bake, a lot. I am also doing a design degree, but thats not particularly important. I have a bit of a baking addiction, and I want to share with you one of my
current obsessions.
Chilli Chocolate.
Those who haven’t experienced its wonderfulness are a bit skeptical, I mean, why would anyone ruin the bittersweet goodness that is chocolate, with chilli?
But I assure you, it is amazing. The chocolate tastes the same, it is just slightly spicy.
So if you’re a little adventurous, you might just enjoy recipe.
With the Grace Collective happening tomorrow, I’m sure this will get you excited for
baked goods.
A warning, you may find them so delicious that you eat the whole batch at once.
Chilli Chocolate Cookies
150 grams dark chocolate
3 tablespoons  butter
1/2 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 eggs at room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla essence
1 cup chopped chocolate pieces
  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Line 2 baking trays with paper.
  2. Melt the chocolate and butter in a bowl in the microwave until just liquid and stir. Set aside.
  3. Stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, black pepper, and cayenne pepper in a bowl. Set aside.
  4. Whisk the eggs and sugar together in a separate large mixing bowl until light and fluffy and pale yellow in color, about 5 minutes. Add the vanilla extract; stir. Beat the melted chocolate into the egg mixture until well combined. Pour the chocolate chunks into the mixture; then fold in the flour mixture and stir until evenly combined. Scoop 2-tablespoon portions onto the prepared baking sheets with enough space between so they do not run together.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until barely set, about 12 minutes. Allow to cool on the sheets until they set slightly, about 5 minutes, before transferring to a rack to cool completely.
