Cookies and Tarts, Week 2, January 18th

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

Depending on how adventureous you are, you can add more or less cayenne pepper. 1/4 tsp is mildly hot. 1/2 tsp is moderatly hot. 1 tsp in hot. 1 1/2 teaspoons is unbearable.

(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.
