After a week of “hatch chile madness” I wanted to end on a sweet and a “little spicy” note with these Chocolate, Chili and Dulce de Leche Cookies. The inspiration came from a new and fun little cookie cookbook – “The Cookiepedia – Mixing, Baking and Reinventing the Classics” by Stacy Adimando. Quirk Productions, who published Matt Armandariz’s book, “On A Stick” graciously sent me an advance copy of The Cookiepedia to review – and I am so glad that they did.
I found this little book very appealing – the recipes are indeed classics but many feature a modern twist. What I liked most about this book though is the helpful hints and easy to read layout. This would be the perfect gift for anyone who has never baked or who is convinced that baking is beyond them.
As I read through the book, the Chocolate Sandwich Cookie recipe caught my eye and I immediately thought of a way to adapt the recipe for a cookie that would be a fitting end to my Hatch Chile madness of this week.
And that is how these Chocolate, Chili and Dulce de Leche Cookies came to be.
Two not-too-sweet dark chocolate cookies slathered with creamy and caramelly Dulce de Leche. Another twist on a classic and the perfect ending to my week of Hatch Chile Madness.
