Spicy Chocolate Shortbread

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. In a medium bowl stir together flour, sugar, cocoa powder, cocoa-chile blend, and cinnamon. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs and starts to cling. Knead dough until smooth; shape dough into a ball.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough until 1/2 inch thick. Using a 1-1/2- to 2-inch star-shape cookie cutter, cut out dough. Place cutouts 2 inches apart on an ungreased large cookie sheet.
  3. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or just until cookies are firm in the center. Transfer cookies to a wire rack; cool. Drizzle cookies with Chocolate Glaze. Let stand until glaze sets.
