Episode 21: Traxx (1988)

Traxx PosterSpecial Guest: 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 only from the mind of Dino De Laurentiis. A truly weird oddity of the VHS era.

Written by and directed by Jerome Gary, Traxx (1988 ) stars Shadoe Stevens as the titular action hero who comes to a town beleaguered by baddies (including Robert Davi as Aldo Palucci). He cleans up crime with gusto, verve, and an endless amount of bullets. But Traxx really wants to give up his live as a one-man army to become the next Famous Amos.

Recipe:
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!
