* 1 1/2 teaspoons pepper, fresh cracked
* 1 teaspoons salt
* 2 cups all-purpose or rice flour (preferred)

* 2 eggs

* 1 teaspoon baking powder
* 1 teaspoon garlic, granulated
* 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Combine salt, pepper,cayenne, baking powder and garlic, mix thoroughly. Sift in the flour and again mix thoroughly.
