Recipe Ingredients for Crisp & Spicy Mayan Chocolate Cookies

1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons cocoa powder
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 large egg
2 1/2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 1/2 tablespoons half and half

Recipe Directions for Crisp & Spicy Mayan Chocolate Cookies

  1. Whisk together first four ingredients. Cut butter into 1/2 inch pieces and work into dry ingredients until it resembles bread crumbs. Whisk egg in separate cup until well combined, then pour into dry ingredients and mix with a fork until combined.

  2. Turn out onto work surface and shape into disk. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours.

  3. Turn disk onto floured work surface and roll out dough to 1/8" thickness. Cut out cookies with 2" cutter (I used a glass) and transfer to a parchment lined baking sheet. (Preheat oven to 350*.) Combine scraps of dough, re-roll and cut out more circles until dough is used up.

  4. In a small bowl, combine sugar, cinnamon and cayenne pepper. Mix well. Lightly brush each cookie with cream, then sprinkle sugar mix on top. Be sure to pass over each cookie several times and use up all the sugar. Bake for 10 minutes, cool slightly on baking sheets, then move to cooling rack until completely cool.
