Black Pepper Cookies

Our Christmas cookie baking is officially underway! The kids bet me that black pepper cookies would be horrible. I bet they would be good. So we made them! I made some modifications on the original recipe we used (click here for the original), as the texture was not working. This is the recipe as we made it:

4 c. flour
1 c. sugar
1/2 c. margarine at room temperature
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
8 oz. milk
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 Tbsp. black pepper

Cream margarine, then add all other ingredients. Mix thoroughly and roll into small balls. Place on cookie sheet (they can be fairly close together as they stay in balls) and bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes. Yield about 60 cookies.
