These are adapted from this recipe. They are a tasty chocolate chip cookie with a spicy kick. They're not hot enough to cause pain, but definitely zippy and very different!

Anth's Zippy Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 C butter
1 C brown sugar
¾ C sugar
2 eggs
1 T vanilla extract
2 ½ C flour
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
1-2 T ground chili peppers (I use cayenne - DO NOT use chili powder)
3 C semisweet chocolate chips
1 C chopped nuts

Preheat oven to 350° F.

Cream butter or margarine and sugars. Add already beaten eggs and vanilla. Mix dry ingredients together and mix with creamed mixture. Add chocolate chips and nuts. Scoop out cookie-sized scoops and bake 8-10 minutes on ungreased sheets, until done.
