I had these once at Bobby Flay's MESA Grill. They were REALLY good. I tried to adapt the recipe, and mine came out even better. The cayenne is there just to give it a little song to sing. You can add more, if you like. Serve on ice cream, or enjoy with a glass of milk.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. MIx together the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  2. With a stand mixer, cream the butter and sugar. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  3. With the mixture still running, incorporate the flour mixture in small increments. Turn off the mixer, and spoon the dough into a bowl.
  4. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for a few hours.
  5. Mix the sugar with the cinnamon and cayenne in a small bowl.
  6. Roll the dough into golf-ball sized balls.
  7. Roll the balls into the sugar mixture.
  8. Bake on a cookie sheet at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 8-10 minutes.
  9. Enjoy!
