Poetry Tuesday: Cookie Count stands at 388

Chocolate Wakeups

Better Eat A Couple(t)

One hundred and three Chocolate Wakeups are flowers
-- cocoa brown/cayenne-petaled -- are blooms she devours.

WOW. Do you have a recipe for those? I love cocoa and spice... They look so delicious!

Jen Lancaster is a writer from Chicago. She just wrote on her blog about an online cookie party where she wants recipes. I included the link because you might want to see some of these recipes.

Tia, thanks for that link! I'm not on MySpace, but I copied a few of those recipes down for possible baking!

Katie - the recipe is in The King Arthur Flour Cookie Companion. I've paraphrased the recipe below:

First, cream 1/2 cup butter with 1 cup sugar, 1/2 tsp vanilla, a pinch of black pepper, a pinch of cayenne pepper, 3/4 tsp. cinnamon, and 1/2 tsp salt.

Add 1 egg and stir to combine. Stir in 3/4 cup cocoa, then 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour. Stir again. I did all this in my stand mixer, but I'm sure you could do it by hand.

Roll into balls and flatten with the bottom of a juice glass dipped in sugar. Bake for 10-11 minutes at 375 F (on an ungreased cookie sheet), remove from oven, and cool cookies on a rack.
