A recipe for an unusual chocolate cookie with black pepper.
Source: I got the recipe from my sister, Emily Roper, who claims she got it from “who knows?”.
Yield: almost 2 dozen
Just last night I told my husband that I had had too much chocolate. My recent baking adventures have included the Chocolate Hello Dolly Cookies, the Triple Chocolate Chunk Cookies, and a Chocolate Sour Cream Pound Cake. I’m all chocolated-out. My husband raised his eyebrows in surprise. I’ve never in my life felt like I was tired of chocolate. No one could have seen it coming.
It turns out, I’m a liar. Not on purpose, or anything, though. Today when my sister sent me the recipe for these Chocolate Black Pepper cookies, I was intrigued. I mean, black pepper in a cookie, I HAD to try it, right? I looked through the ingredients and realized I had everything I needed to make them. (Sort of. More on that later.) And, even though I knew it involved chocolate, a lot of chocolate, I forged ahead.
