Cocoa Chocolate Chip Cayenne Pepper Cookies

I've been really slow updating my cookie blog this year, for this I have to apologize.
My turn for Cookie night came around tonight, so here's my latest being effort: Cocoa Chocolate Chip Cayenne Pepper Cookies.
The recipe follows my regular Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe, however to make them Cocoa-Cayenne I add two tbsp of cocoa powder, 1 tsp of Cayenne pepper, and one extra tbsp of milk. The baking process is the same. In the photos you can see the dark cocoa-cayenne cookies next to their vanilla cousins.
The cayenne doesn't really alter the flavour of the cookies, however they do leave a lasting heat. You'll definitely want to have a glass of milk on hand after having a few cookies ;)
