In Response to Re: Kickin' Chocolate Chunk Cookies:
I do not own any Roasted Saigon Cinnamon or 1 teaspoon Ancho Chile Pepper. Is this cinnamon different from the Frenchs I currently own? What is Ancho Chile Pepper? Where can I buy things like this? I would like to try something new but am lost with these unusual ingredients. Thank you, Renee.

Hi Sue, I would follow the recipe like it is. Saigon Cinnamon is awesome and will give the cookie a much
better flavor than regular cinnamon. I would also get the ancho chile pepper because I am sure the
combination of the saigon cinnamon and the ancho chile pepper is the kickin part of the cookie and it gives
the cookie the awesome flavor. I would google penzeys spices and check out the saigon cinnamon and the
ancho chile pepper. You can also check to see if they have a store near you. We have a store that is about a
year old in the San Diego area. You can sniff all their spices and other goodies. They will send you a catalog
and you can learn about their products and they also have stories and great recipes in the catalog. Enjoy
trying something new.
