Ingredients

1
cup
Brown Sugar
2
Eggs
1 1/4
All Purpose Flour
3/4
cup
Cocoa Powder
1 1/2
teaspoons
Baking Powder
1/4
teaspoon
Salt
1
teaspoon
Vanilla
1
cup
Butter
1/4
cup
Confectioner Sugar
2
teaspoons
Cayenne Pepper

Directions

Heat oven to 176 degree Celcius. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt and cayenne pepper.
With an electric mixer, beat the butter and brown sugar on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Beat in the eggs. Reduce speed to low and gradually add the flour mixture, mixing until just incorporated.
Form the dough into balls (each equal to 1 level tablespoon). Roll the balls in the confectioners’ sugar and place on parchment-lined baking sheets, spacing them 2 inches apart. Bake until the cookies are firm and the tops crack, 13 to 15 minutes.
Cool slightly on the baking sheets, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
