One of the recipes was for Mexican Chocolate Snickerdoodles. A video with Isa and the recipe is posted on http://www.theppk.com/blog/2009/09/16/mexican-hot-chocolate-snickerdoodles/. This was the recipe that convinced me to buy the cookbook. The only thing you might think about changing in the recipe is the amount of cayenne. It called for 1/2 teaspoon which may be too much for some people or kids. If you're "hot spicy" adverse, cut it to 1/4 teaspoon. If baked the full 12 minutes, these cookies are crispy. If you prefer a softer cookie, bake the shorter time.
Both of these cookies will be on my Christmas cookie bake list this year.
