Pepper Cookies

Pepper Cookies

I found this recipe ages ago in a newspaper and have had fun with it over the years. No one can guess the secret ingredient.

Submitted by: Susan from Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Yield: About 4 Dozen


Preparation Instructions:

Cream the butter (or Crisco), sugar, and vanilla until light and creamy.

Combine the flour, baking powder, and spices.
Add the dry ingredients to the creamed mixture alternately with the milk. It may be a bit stiff.

Shape into small balls, or drop from a teaspoon, onto ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 12-15 minutes. Cool on rack.

More About This Recipe

12 minutes is preferable for a softer cookie. The amount of pepper is adjustable to taste, but do not leave it out. It really is a subtle touch. Try it first, before adjusting the spices, and you will be surprised.

These cookies were soft and delicious. I served them to a group of friends and no one could guess the secret ingredient. Needless to say, there were no cookies left at the end of the evening.
