MMmmmm! Combining some of my favorites flavors! These are adapted from Pichet Ong's The Sweet Spot. Prep time does not include chilling time as it is not mandatory (they work better for me if I can delay gratification long enough to chill though).

- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 cup unsalted butter, cut into 1 inch cubes and chilled
- 2⁄3 cup light brown sugar, packed

- 1⁄4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 2 large eggs
