    Will they taste ok without the chili powder?ReplyCancel

      Hi Rhonda, They’ll taste OK. But as Kate says, the richness of the cookie is enhanced with the chili powder.ReplyCancel

    At Christmas I was thinking about modify8mg the springerle to be like Arty’s recipe.  To Rhonda, Arty’s recipe is amazing and if it’s like her recipe, it will be a favorite.  It just has a little warmth going down the throat.  No one tastes the chipotle, just lots of flavor!ReplyCancel

    Let me add that your choice of cocoa powder is essential.  I use King Arthur Dutch process and it the difference in taste is amazing!ReplyCancel

      Thanks Kate.
      However, we do want people to try this recipe even if they don’t have that particular brand.

      I’m making the recipe this afternoon with another brand that’s what I have on the shelf at the moment. I’ll keep a look out for the K.A. brand when I’m replenishing, based on your suggestion.

      Thanks again,

    I have cayenne powder. Can I substitute it? Sorry, I don’t know anything about these hot powders because I don’t like spicy food. But would like to try it to see if it enhances the chocolate flavor.ReplyCancel

      Hi Rhonda,
      We don’t recommend cayenne as a substitute for Chipotle chile powder for two reasons:
      1. Cayenne is 5-8 times hotter on the Scoville scale than Chipotle. It would overwhelm the cookie.
      2. Chipotle has a smokey flavor note that subtly enhances the chocolate in the cookie without being the star.

      In summary, cayenne does not play well in this cookie’s sandbox. Stick with the Chipotle powder. We think you’ll be pleased with the very subtle heat and the way the chocolate is enhanced. You could, of course, use less than what is called for, but we think you’d lose the overall effect.ReplyCancel

    Well, I have to tell you I had my doubts about this recipe…(chili powder is not something that I have EVER put in a cookie)..but, these are absolutely delicious!  They are my new favorite ultimate dark chocolate cookies!!  My family can’t believe they have chili powder in them, and I wouldn’t totally believe it myself (except for the fact that I put it in).  THANKS so much for sharing this wonderful recipe!ReplyCancel

    This is a really a great recipe! I’ve made them twice since this was posted and one of my friends commented this cookie goes really nicely with a glass of red wine.  I added an extra teaspoon of chipotle chili pepper for one of my friends who likes a lot of spice and they turned out perfect. I am sure I will be making these again.  Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful recipe!ReplyCancel

    These sound wonderful. Question – how does the top stick to the cookie?ReplyCancel

    • patrice.romzick1December 14, 2017 - 9:52 pm

      Joan, Thanks for asking the questions. Simply moisten the back of the impression with a small amount of water. The image will stick to the cookie. You can also use a bit of corn syrup to adhere the image.ReplyCancel

    if I make these now, how can I store them until Christmas or new years – too busy to bake thenReplyCancel

    • patrice.romzick1December 15, 2017 - 4:42 pm

      Chris, Yes these can be made ahead of time, I would make sure the fondant topping is really dry (air-dry for at least a day) before placing them in an air-tight container. If you are going to make them more than a week ahead of time, I would freeze them. Just make sure you place a piece of wax paper between the layers of cookies and freeze in an air-tight container. Hope this helps.ReplyCancel

    I made these using our round three kings mold. The cookies required about double the bake time but they turned out quite lovely. ReplyCancel

    Hello Robert! It’s actually a fluted cookie cutter – not a pan. We use the fluted cutter to get the scalloped edge of the cookie when cutting out the dough before baking the cookie. If you have any other questions, don’t hesitate to ask! Thanks, and happy baking!ReplyCancel
