    I made these cookies many years ago and this recipe is differently different then the one i have. I think its because i tweaked it i do that a lot. i used baking chocolate and other different ingredients.

    Has anyone noticed that this recipe is entirely different from the same [filtered]led recipe in MSL May 2017 page 66? I made the magazine recipe and the cookies did not spread out. The magazine says the oven should be at 325F which seems to be really different from 400. I used cayenne as recipe suggested and the taste was good but they were shaped poorly and took a lot longer at 325.

    Absolutely delicious, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Mine took around 15 minutes to bake but turned out amazing. I wouldn't recommend any more chili as I could definitely taste it but it wasn't super spicy. For sure making these again

    So I have a question. So who all used Chili powder and who all used Chile powder? Where do you find the Chile powder? Chili powder has other spices like salt, garlic, onion, cumin, etc... I assume Chile powder is just the peppers? Is that correct?

    Just made these — sticking pretty much to exact directions — and everyone loved them, even my young kids. Used ancho chill powder. Baked at 350 in a convection oven for exactly 14 minutes and they were perfect. Crisp on the outside and soft inside. I added about 6 oz. of semisweet chocolate chips and consensus was that they would have been a bit uninspiring without them. Next time, I'll also add a bit of cinnamon and ancho chile powder to the batter to up the flavor. Easy and quick to make.

    Made these today. They were delicious. My butter was quite cold - frigid weather, so no extra flour needed. Tried both with and without chocolate chips. Without were less sweet and more to my taste. Will be a go to in my recipes.

    Sorry, I'm probably just not seeing it: What's the yield again on this recipe?

    I made these cookies using just a bit of extra flour than the recipe calls for (I use a very soft wheat flour for all my baking), then sandwiched them with a Kahlua buttercream - sensational!

    Made these for a school Fiesta function and they were quite the talking point. Note on the yield: I doubled the recipe and downsized the cookies from Tablespoon scoops to teaspoon scoops - and turned out 152 cookies, over 12 dozen!

    I made these, but i dont think they were a favorite of mine, just personal preference. Everyone who tried them loved them! I added an extra egg because in Switzerland the eggs are much smaller, so if you live in Europe I would recommend that!
