Cayenne powder hot. Very different. Great for a Superbowl party. Guys love these.

These are definately adult cookies. They have a real kick and you need to warn people if you take them to a party or gathering. Be sure kids know they are HOT and not just sugary.

I had heard of peppery cookies and altered a Spritz cookie recipe to come up with these.
