Chocolate Chili Cookies (Eggless)


The following day after making peanut cookies and pineapple tarts, I couldn't keep quiet. I was practically itching to make more cookies though I almost collapsed making pineapple tarts all by myself. I washed up the baking utensils and off to bed by 10pm. Never mine that the whole world is awake on facebook. The sleep did wonders for I woke up feeling energetic. However I couldn't make up my mind on what type of cookie it should be. So I flipped the old recipe books and surfed for recipes. Then the inspiration came. What about cookies with chillies? Certainly interesting. After all I've made Chilli Chocolate Pudding before. 

Still when it comes to cakes and cookies, I wouldn't trust websites and blogs, Quite a few disasters with the recipes except for the Sujee cake. The next option was to call friends and ask. Thanks to one of them for unselfishly sharing this recipe. I knew I can trust the recipe for she is an avid baker who also bakes for others during festive seasons. Cookies tasted crunchy with a nice balance between the sweetness and spiciness. As impressive as the cookies are, making I won't say is all that easy but possible. 

Ingredients
100g cold butter 
40g sugar (add more if you like)
13g cocoa powder
20g rice flour
60g plain flour
1/2 tbsp chili flakes (or more)
1 tsp vanilla essence
A pinch of baking soda
1 tbsp flour (for dipping fork; keep aside for later use)
Method
Cream/beat butter, sugar and essence till light and fluffy.
Sift cocoa, rice flour and plain flour, soda and chili flakes.
Fold into butter mixture.
(Note: the dough will be sticky and its suppose to be like that)
Leave in fridge for about 1 hour.
Bring out and roll into small balls.
Place on baking tray, lined with baking paper.
Dip fork into flour and press over the rolled balls.
Bake for 20-25 minutes at 160C or till cookies are nice and brown.
