Recipe: Mexican Hot Chocolate Cookies

Do you like your cookies super crrrrunchy?  Then you'll love these chocolately crunchy Mexican Hot Chocolate Cookies.  The recipe is from Everyday Food Magazine's April 2010 issue.  This is the second recipe I've made from this issue since receiving it only a few days ago.

My husband loves crisp cookies to dip in milk but I don't make them very often.  It's difficult to get that crispy texture without burning them or having the cookie taste like cardboard.  I've added this recipe to my favourite file as I can see he'll request these again and again.

The cookies are rolled in cinnamon, sugar and chili powder but they weren't too spicy at all.  The recipe came together quickly but rolling each cookie did take time.  You bake them 2 cookie sheets at a time (which this recipe gives you the right amount for), so the whole batch is done in 10 minutes.  They stuffed the cookie jar to the top.

Brette over at Martha and Me made these Mexican Hot Chocolate cookies this week too.  Have a look at her results here.

I've been doing lots off cooking this week and hope to post these other recipes soon for my chicken and apple curry, buttermilk cheese bread, pudding cake and snow pudding.  I received two new cookbooks in the mail and have been very inspired indeed.
