1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8-1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Line baking sheets with parchment paper
Mix topping together in small bowl and set aside
In a medium bowl, mix oil, sugar, syrup and milk and stir vigorously. Add extracts and stir
Stir in the remaining ingredients until you have a pliable dough.
Roll the dough in your hands into walnut sized balls and pat them into flattened 2 inch discs. Press the tops into the sugar topping and place on the baking sheets sugar side up.
Bake for 10-12 minutes until the tops get all crackled on top. Allow to cool on the pan before moving cookies onto cooling rack.
