If you were born on the 20th-century side of the millennium, you may be inclined to describe a particularly excellent piece of news, work of art, or noteworthy occurrence as “sweet.” Those who came of age side-by-side with TikTok and Soundcloud might opt for a different adjective in response to the same thing: “fire.”
Our latest recipe from Chef Teresa Hansen is where generational vernaculars come together perfectly around a cookie that’s equal parts sweet and fiery. First there’s the mix that whisks together brown sugar and vanilla with cinnamon and chimayo chile powder. Then there’s the Good Things Coming Fruit Jelly variety that tops off these cookies when they’re fresh out of the oven – Mango Chile. Half sweet. Half fire. All nice.
No matter how you describe them, we’re pretty sure whoever tries this recipe will be speaking the same language of blissed-out satisfaction. Satiate your sweet tooth and turn up the heat this winter with Mango Chile Cocoa Cookies baked to perfection.
