Cinnamon and Cayenne Spiced Chocolate Cookies

Yesterday morning I came across this recipe for spicy "Hot Mama" chocolate cookies posted by Amber Turpin over at Civil Eats, and I had to make them. These cookies are easy to make with just a few ingredients. The subtle heat from the mix of cinnamon and cayenne pepper compliments the intense cocoa flavor nicely. While these cookies are good for all-around snacking (what cookies aren't?), they also pair well as a contrasting dimension of flavor with cold dairy desserts such as vanilla ice cream, or just a plain old glass of milk!
