Today I’m sharing our other Christmas cookie – these are the DIY guy’s favorite! They have a bit of a bite due to the black pepper that is added but along with the other spices, this cookie is just right! I know this is my grandmother’s recipe but I’m curious as to where she either found it or how she made it up…
The 4 spices that are mixed with flour baking powder are black pepper, cloves, cinnamon and fresh grated nutmeg
The other ingredients are sugar, shortening, eggs, raisins (boiled and drained), walnuts, and cocoa powder
Once all the above is mixed, you will need to add some milk to soften.
Round balls are placed on a greased cookie sheet, baked and iced with powdered sugar and milk…sprinkles add a nice touch!
Hope you have enjoyed our two favorite cookies! Now the recipes go back in the vault… (just kidding!)
