When we think of Cinco de Mayo recipes we typically think, margaritas, fish tacos, salsa, guacamole...I think you see where I'm going with this. Dessert isn't typically even on the radar for this holiday. But I think a little sugar and spice will make everything nice...
Smoky chipotle chili powder gives these decadent double chocolate cookies a little sweet heat, but not too much, just the right amount. A super sweet ending for Cinco de Mayo. And I think they are a perfect accompaniment to that margarita!
The secret to perfect cookies (and most baked goods) is in not overworking the dough. So once the wet and dry ingredients are combined, that's it - stop mixing. You're ready to make the cookies!
When cookies are done, let them rest for a minute or 2 on the baking sheet. If you try to remove them too quickly, they'll be soft and may break when you're transferring them to the cooling rack.
