I made a half recipe adding a half teaspoon of pepper. I liked the unusual spicy taste. I used butter instead of shortening and the cookies did not keep their cutter shapes well. They were thin and crispy. I thought they were sweet enough but if I did I would used a 60% cacao chocolate which I think would compliment them nicely. Read More

I decided to put 2 tsp. of black pepper in these because it doesn't have that info. But if you aren't up on so much spice I'd suggest making a half batch and trying 1/2 tsp. pepper first. I also doubled the cinnamon I like it like that. Not a soft cookie but a good cookie for dipping. The cardamom was a nice addition to them as well. Read More
