Spiced Chocolate Shortbread Buttons
These Spiced Chocolate Shortbread Buttons are my favorite fall cookies. They look so cute too, like little brown buttons. I usually use cayenne pepper to spice up this recipe, but you could use ancho chili powder or regular or spicy chili powder if you prefer.
To make these cookie buttons, start by making cookie dough from butter, sugar, egg, vanilla extract, flour, dark cocoa powder and baking powder. Add the secret ingredients: cinnamon and chili powder. Chill the dough in the refrigerator for an hour before rolling it out and cutting out circular button shapes. Bake in the oven and leave to cool before enjoying with your favorite fall hot drink.
