Episode 21: Traxx (1988)

Traxx PosterSpecial Guests:
Robert Davi & Shadoe Stevens

Chili flavored cookies anyone? This week the guys look back at this vastly forgotten and ahead of it's time not-on-DVD action spoof about a world mercenary who suddenly decides to retire as he has secret aspirations of becoming a famous cookie baker. Only from the mind of Dino De Laurentiis. A truly weird oddity of the VHS era.

Mike's TRAXX Chilli Con Cookie Recipe

1 1/4 cups flour
1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon ancho chili powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup softened butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
2 tablespoons sugar mixed with 2 teaspoons cinnamon

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Sift together flour, chili powder and salt on paper and set aside. Beat butter with electric mixer for 1 minute until creamy. Add sugar and beat until light in color, 3 to 4 minutes. Scrape down sides of bowl. Add egg and beat 1 minute. Add the sifted ingredients and mix in. Refrigerate dough until firm, at least 30 minutes. Scoop cookies with 1-ounce scoop or rounded tablespoon onto ungreased pans. Bake 6 minutes, then turn and bake 5 minutes more. Let cool for a few minutes, then sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture. Finish the cookies and turn on Shadoe Stevens in TRAXX. Enjoy!
