So let me get this straight, you don't think that adding a pinch of black pepper to your oatmeal cookies won't give them a little extra hint of something exotic. Add it with your cinnamon and a touch of ginger and you've got something good.

Hi, Alicia. I have had ginger cookies that had some black pepper in them. You're's a really good combo. But cayenne or chili pepper is a lot hotter than black pepper. I think that cayenne or chili pepper in a ginger cookie or a raisin cookie would be a little too "in your face." But the heat of the cayenne/chili complements the chocolate really well and just works. Those Aztecs really knew what they were doing when they put chili in their hot chocolate!


when are those El-Paso cookies coming?!


Well, I like red pepper. It's a little hotter than black, but I like the complexity of it. I may have to try a little the next time I make my oatmeal cookies. Maybe 1/8 of a teaspoon. You know a little goes a long way.

BTW, I want to get on the mailing list. :) Those white chocolate macaroons sound awesome. I'd make them, but no one in my house eats coconut cookies but me.

Hi, Alicia. I think you and Mumma would be fast friends. She loves coconut as well. :-)

If you like red pepper, you should try my hotter chocolate cookies. I think I might make the El Paso cookie later this week.

Maybe I should think about doing internet cookie sales...

I already beat you to it, I used it when I made your Hot(ter) Chocolate Cookies ... to die for!!! I even added a dash of Chipotle Tabasco to glaze and put on them ... you can't beat Chocolate & Chipotle!!! Maybe you could rename them to Holy Mole Cookies :)

Hi, Tracey. That's a good one--"Holy Mole"! I might have to use that...
