Sorry if this is feeling like a food blog lately… I’ve just been in a cooking/baking mood. I promise that it won’t turn into a food only blog (If I did, I’d need to rename the website and that’s not happening ;).
- 2 C Flour
- ¼ tsp Salt
- ½ tsp Cinnamon
- *½ tsp Cayenne Pepper
- ¾ C Vegetable Oil
- 3 Eggs
- 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
- ¾ C Cocoa Powder
- 2 tsp Baking Powder
- 1 & ½ C Sugar
- (Powdered Sugar for rolling)
- In a large mixing bowl add the flour, salt, cinnamon, and cayenne. Mix until well blended. Then add the remaining ingredients (minus the powdered sugar) and mix well.
- Cover and chill for one to two hours. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Roll chilled dough into balls, flatten a bit, and cover in powdered sugar. Place on parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven, let rest on baking sheet for two minutes, then move to cooling rack.
Cookies may take a little longer to bake depending on how large you made them.
**Be careful with these cookies if you’re pregnant. I ate several when 35.5 weeks and that night my Braxton Hicks contractions turned into the real deal…baby girl was born the next morning. She’s my second baby that early, but I just wanted to add a little precaution due to the spice. Though, I’m sure that some of you ladies that are able carry your babies over 40 weeks may find it helpful ;).
