My family and I did not enjoy these. The cayenne spice really hits the palate late and the cookie itself wasn't sweet enough to counter it. I only put a pinch of cayenne in, not even a 1/2 tsp, and it was really spicy toward the end. This is my first time trying this recipe, and I followed every instruction/amount to a T (except for decreasing the amount of cayenne) and it really did not turn out great. I agree with other commenters about freezing rather than refrigerating the dough because it was very sticky to slice. The flavor may be great for other people but wasn't great for me.
