Momma Rose's Kicker Doodles

We went through somewhere over 80 dozen cookies in the Lawrenceville Joy of Cookies Tour last weekend. Fortunately, we have some wonderful friends who did the baking for us while we got everything else ready to get the shop open. Our friend Culinary Cory made two kinds of cookies with a greenSinner theme: Devil Chocolate Chip Cookies and Minty Grinch Cookies. And Momma Rose (who you may see working around the shop with us) made these Kicker Doodles (recipe below), a spicy twist on snickerdoodles.

I can personally attest, having eaten large quantities of all three of these throughout the weekend, they're all delicious.

Momma Rose's Kicker Doodles Recipe

The Kick

  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1 T. chipotle spice
  • 1 t. cayenne (or to taste)

The Doodle

  • 2 3/4 c. all-purpose flour
  • 2 t. baking powder
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1/2 t. chipotle spice
  • 8 oz. (2 sticks) butter
  • 1 1/2 c. sugar
  • 2 eggs

Beat butter and sugar together until combined. Add eggs one at a time. In a separate bowl combine dry ingredients and add to butter mixture. Mix until well combined and dough comes together into a ball.

Chill dough for at least two hours. Form chilled dough into balls and coat in "Kick" mixture. Bake in oven at 350°F for 16-20 minutes.
