One of the things I love most in the colder months is a Mexican Hot Chocolate! Chocolate, cinnamon and a little kick from cayenne! These cookies were inspired by that flavor! YUM!!
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or leave ungreased. In a large bowl, cream sugar and butter together. Stir in eggs and vanilla.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa, cream of tartar, baking soda, cinnamon, cayenne and salt. Blend well.
Slowly stir flour mixture into bowl with butter mixture. Combine well.
In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon mixture. Form dough into 1 inch balls, roll in sugar/cinnamon mixture to coat. Place on prepared cookie sheet.
Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute before removing to cooling rack.
