If you have red pepper flakes, grind them well in a coffee grinder or mortar and pestle and you'll have the same thing. I have also seen this very same recipe made with chipolte or habanero powder. Comments posted state that these pepper powders really do not add "heat" as much as they add "kick" to the taste, and heightens the peanut butter taste.
And re the potato chip cookies -- those are ALWAYS a hit when I make them, the first to completely disappear. When I bring them to a party (of any type), everybody asks for the recipe, so now, when I bring these, I also bring copies of the recipe! They ARE addicting, and a good way to use up the broken chips at the bottom of the bag that nobody seems to want to eat! (why is that?!?)
