Zippy Bars

From Dorothy McNett's Recipe Book at Zip (from Spice hunter) is a seasoning that I call "paprika with a punch" as it is paprika with seasonings such as chili powder, jalapeno and lemon oil. Freshly ground white peppercorns or even cayenne powder will add zip when you need it if you can't find Zip in your market area! This recipe has been featured on Dorothy's television shows.

1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup white sugar
3/4 cup crystalline brown sugar
2 teaspoons real vanilla extract
2 farm fresh eggs
2 1/3 cup unbleached all-purpose flour, sifted or lifted
1/4 cup sesame or hemp seeds
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper or Zip
1 teaspoon semi coarse sea salt
2 cups dark chocolate chips
1 cup chopped San Benito Co. walnuts or Jeffrey's Spiced Pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In batter bowl, cream together the butter, sugars, and vanilla, adding eggs and beating well. In another bowl, whisk together the flour, seeds, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Blend into the egg mixture, adding chips and nuts. Spread into a buttered or silicone lined 12 by 17 inch baking sheet with sides. Bake 20-25 minutes, or until the bars are set and browned on top. Allow to cool on rack before slicing into bars or diamonds, using a dough docker or "bash and chop[" or kitchen knife as you do not want to use a sharp knife or it will cut into your silicone mat. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired. To make drop cookies, (Zippy Drops) simply drop by tablespoons using the cookie dropper onto prepared baking sheet. Bake 15-20 minutes for drop cookies, about 20-25 minutes for a pan of bar cookies.
