Black Pepper Cookies

When one of my friends posted a photo of a uniquely named cookie on Facebook recently, I knew I wanted to try it, too. Well, he was kind enough to share his recipe for Black Pepper Cookies with me & I finally got around to making them last night.
Deeelish (according to me, the hub, & my co-workers)!

3 cups flour
1 ½ cups cocoa
1 tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon cinnamon
  3 sticks(!) butter
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla
Directions:  Mix butter and sugar until smooth. Add flour, cocoa, salt, pepper, & cinnamon and mix well. Finally, add eggs and vanilla. Roll into “logs” on plastic wrap and freeze. When ready to bake, roll in sugar and cut into disks. Bake at 350 for 4 minutes, rotate, and bake for another 4 minutes. I did a test batch of 2 cookies to see if the time was appropriate for the thickness of the cookie disks & I suggest doing the same. 

Thanks again for sharing, Erik!
