This recipe was sent to me by Caroline, who follows my blog from Vancouver, BC. They are very rich (almost as much cocoa as flour) and have a very nice, fudgey texture that is pleasing. With one teaspoon of cayenne, they have a good bight, too much for some of the members of choir. The added sugar and salt on the top made a nice finish. They are really easy to make.

Adapted from Food Network – Eat St.




1½ cups sifted all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup white sugar, plus more for sprinkling tops
