"kicked" Up Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies


I took my favorite oatmeal cookie recipe and added a few extra ingredients to create a sort of "grown-up" chocolate chip cookie. Ground ginger and cayenne pepper give it the "kick"!

What you will need

1 cup AP flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

A pinch of salt

8 tablespoons (one stick) softened butter

1 cup light brown sugar (packed)

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 teaspoon ground ginger

1 egg, beaten

1 cup oatmeal (quick oats work well)

1/4 cup grated coconut (sweetened or unsweetened)

1/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

3/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
