Spicy Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies

August 15, 2012

These cookies are filled with delicious yet opposite flavors of sweet caramel and spicy cayenne pepper. As well as dark chocolate chips to even out the flavors.

They are rich, moist, and fluffy from an extra egg yolk, dark brown sugar, and bread flour, respectively.

Watch out for the spice, though! To tame the devilish flavor make sure to drink with a cold glass of milk!
