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
- Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Line 2 baking trays with paper.
- Melt the chocolate and butter in a bowl in the microwave until just liquid and stir. Set aside.
- Stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, black pepper, and cayenne pepper in a bowl. Set aside.
- 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.
- 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.
