                                                                After spending weeks in baking ,selling and gifting them.I am drained..I really forgot this space and facebook, until someone pinged me with a picture of food made by my recipe.I am all set to compose a post to give my "thank you" speech for this blog's fourth anniversary...The year has been "the best" ever.I thank both Chennai food guide and Home Bakers guild group which gave plateforms to explore the food industry and also put me on toes to set my goals and to work on it..And thank you to the people who i have met been my besties and my dearest friends..Thank god for all the blessings,I will do continue to do my best!

Chocolate Spice Cookies - Makes about 30 cookies

Ingredients
130 grams of dark chocolate ,chopped
300 grams of plain flour
1/4 cup Dutch cocoa
1/4-1/2 tsp Chilli powder
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cardamom
120 grams Butter at room temperature
3/4 caster sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1 egg
fine zest of 1/4 an orange

Method
Put the chocolate in a heat prool bowl and gently melt over a pot of simmering water..Set aside to cool
Cream the butter,sugar and vanilla together until pale and creamy
Add the egg ,then mix with cooled chocolate
Combine the dry ingredients and fold in egg mixture
Tip in the dough onto the bench and roll into 2 logs about 2 cm in diameter
Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm ,but not solid
Preheat the oven the 180*C
Slice the dough into 1 1/2 thick rounds and place on a lined baking tray
Bake for 7 minutes then carefully turn them over and cook for another 3-4 minutes

Dont under estimate this savory cookie,if you a want a spicy bite in middle of a dessert pool,this cookie is the best choice.I have added half tsp of all spice powder to the cookie.If you still didnt try chocolate and chilli in your baking,you are missing something hot! :)

Merry Christmas,Enjoy!
