A chocolatey cookie with a slightly savory aftertaste!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 14, 2012

Fantastic! I didn't have any chipotle, that's why, instead of it I added cayenne pepper. In total, it was about 3 teaspoons. It might seem a bit too spicy, but it was all right! Everybody loved them, even those, who don't eat spicy food)
