Oh YUM! These are very easy and a great little snack. I actually ended up with more than 5 dozen. I also had to add just a bit of water to get the dough to come together - about 1-2 Tbsp. They smelled SO good in the oven - like a really great country breakfast. I'll probably increase the cayenne pepper or maybe try it with pepper Jack...mmm... I will certainly be making these again!
