Reminiscent of a spiced Mexican hot chocolate and with relatively few ingredients and very few steps, these cookies are easy, quick, delicious and have a unique heat. Plus they’re egg-free so you can eat the dough with no worries.

  2. 2Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl with your hands for 5 minutes
  3. 3Place the dough over a sheet of wax paper, and use the paper to roll the dough into a log
  4. 4Unroll the wax paper, and cut off 1/4" pieces of dough with a knife
  5. 5Bake on a lightly greased cookie sheet for 5 minutes, then turn them over and cook for another 5 minutes
  6. 6Cool and serve
