I don’t know why, but I was in the mood to make something vegan so I made these Mexican Chocolate Snickerdoodles from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar, They are big, chewy, cracked-topped chocolate cookies flavored with cayenne and cinnamon.
The cookies are great if you need something vegan, but as much as I love Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar, I prefer the Tex Mex Chocolate Cookies over these. The Snickerdoodles are a little firmer and chewier, while the Tex Mex cookies are slightly fudgier and richer. So really it just depends on your mood.

Here’s the Mexican Chocolate Snickerdoodle recipe. Let me know if it’s broken, but it’s worth taking a look at the recipe on Isa’s site and checking out all her others!
All of the ingredients in the recipe are pretty basic except for the chocolate extract which most people don’t have. I do, and I used it. However I don’t think it made a difference, so you’ll be fine with just vanilla.
Let me know what you think if you try the cookies. My absolute favorite recipe from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar is still the Gingerbread Biscotti.
I do use the chocolate extract. It could be my imagination, but I *think* it might add a tiny bit of depth to the cookies. I use Penzey’s Mexican Vanilla, and love it in these.
These are very attractive cookies! I love those Tex Mex Chocolate cookies and the Gingerbread Biscotti. Favorite recipes for sure!
Hi Corby! It’s good to hear from you :). The dough is definitely easy to work with and the recipe is easy to scale. Do you use the chocolate extract when you make the cookies?
Hi Anna! I love these cookies so much. I’ve been making them for many many years. They are one of our biggest sellers at our annual charity bake sale. This is the easiest dough to work with, and these come out perfectly every time. And just one bowl!
