I made these spicy, lime drop cookies in my Cookies and Tarts Class. (Can use lemon or orange flavorings instead of lime)

How to Make Citrus Sizzlers
- Preheat oven to 400F. Lightly grease or line with parchment two baking sheets.
- In a medium-sized bowl, cream togeather the butter and sugar. Beat in the juice, zest, and egg, then stir in flour, pepper, salt and baking soda. (a little bkac pepper can be added for extra flavor, and this is a good time to adjust the cayanne pepper by adding a little at a time.) Remember to scape the sides of the bowl to make sure all the ingredients are well combined.
- Using a small cookie scoop or a spoon, drop batter (by the teaspoonful if using a spoon)onto the prepared baking sheets. Flatten each ball of dough slightly useing the bottom of a drinking glass dipped in sugar.
- Bake the cookies for 10 minutes or until they're light brown around the edges. Remove them from the oven and transfer to a rack to cool.
