Extra Spicy Gingerbread Cookies

So many spices, plus an extra kick!

Traditional spiced gingerbread cookies already feature many delicious festive spices, like cloves, cinnamon, and allspice. All three are here, plus the addition of cayenne pepper powder for an extra spicy kick. Paired with the ground ginger powder, that’s a delicious amount of heat in these cookies. Be sure to label these cookies as “hot!” when serving to family and friends!

Cayenne Spiced Pumpkin Pie

Cayenne Spiced Pumpkin Pie

Spiced perfectly, with a pinch of fire….

Who doesn’t love the classic spiced pumpkin pie? With its earthy nutmeg and flavor-packed cloves, it’s jam-packed with taste-goodness. But you know what we think is missing? Of course…a little heat. Enter cayenne pepper powder. Just a pinch (or more if you want), brings a new level of flavor to the dessert without drowning out everything that makes pumpkin pie oh so very tasty.

Spicy Oatmeal Cookies

Spicy Oatmeal Cookies

Turn ho-hum into hot, hot, hot!

We’ll be honest, standard oatmeal cookies aren’t our thing. They tend to be too plain, just ok as a cookie. And in our books, “just ok” for a cookie is a culinary crime!

So why not spice up that ho-hum oatmeal with exotic spices like earthy cumin, fiery ginger powder, and warming nutmeg – and add a punch of heat from spicy cayenne pepper powder to boot? Now this is an oatmeal cookie that has something to say. It’ll warm up even the chilliest night, and that standard glass of milk is the perfect pairing to curb that heat!

Spicy Pumpkin Seeds

Spicy Pumpkin Seeds

Extreme healthy snacking.

Pumpkin seeds are nutritional beasts – filled with nutrients and antioxidants. We love them as a snack any time of the year, but they just seem to taste extra special in the Fall, especially fresh pumpkin seeds right from that jack-o’-lantern. Sure lightly salted is one way to go, but we, of course, prefer the spicier option, whenever there’s one. These spicy pumpkin seeds amp up the flavor and add in the health benefits of paprika, cayenne pepper powder, and ground cumin. They’re so simple to make, but stacked with flavor.

Spicy Edamame

Spicy Edamame

Healthy snacking done spicy style.

Edamame are a delicious healthy treat, perfect as an appetizer or snack. They are near perfect lightly salted, but why not go for spicy nirvana by adding in some crushed red pepper and cayenne? Think of them like edamame extreme, salty with a punch. If you want a little less spiciness, try swapping out the cayenne for chili pepper powder
