Cayenne Chocolate Cookies

IMG_5695Yesterday, I had a fantastic cookie exchange to attend. The details: 72 cookies, packaged in groups of three, sending you home with 24 varieties of cookies. My cookie recipe made more than I thought it would, so I was able to send an extra cookie in each bag. Which was a way better idea than having another two dozen cookies in my house just begging to be eaten. This cookies are fantastic, they are rich and chocolatey, they finish off with a nice, spicy kick. Miss F especially enjoyed them, she loves the spice!
Cayenne Chocolate Cookies
makes four dozen

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 cups flour
1 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350°F. Cream butter and both sugars until fluffy. Add eggs and blend well. Add cayenne, cocoa, baking soda and salt and blend very well. It's important to blend this stage completely so that heat is evenly distributed. Add flour and blend. Fold in chips. Refrigerate for one hour. Drop teaspoonfuls onto lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes.
