Ingredients

  • 10 habanero peppers, seeded and minced

  • 1 ½ cups white sugar

  • 1 cup softened butter

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 eggs

  • 2 ¾ cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

  2. In a large bowl, mix the peppers, sugar, butter, vanilla, and eggs. Beat until smooth. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir into the pepper mixture just until combined. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.

  3. Bake 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown. Cool on wire racks.

Note

Remove and discard the stems, seeds, and pulp from the peppers. Mince peppers, and place in a bowl with enough milk to cover. Place bowl in a microwave, and heat until milk is lukewarm. Let sit about 10 minutes. Discard milk, and rinse peppers thoroughly in warm water. Repeat as desired.
