I usually bake these special cookies for the holidays, but my family loves them so I bake them for their birthdays. The addition of ground chipotle chili pepper gives these cookies a little zing. The dough may be sticky so I dip my hands in confectioners' sugar for easier handling. —Gloria Bradley, Naperville, Illinois

"I LOVE cracked cookies. They look so pretty without having to do any real work. Not to mention they taste delicious! I've made this recipe a couple times with much success, but mostly I use a cake mix and doctor it with chipotle pepper. This recipe gave me the great idea!"
