1 (10 ounce) package
cinnamon swirl coffee cake mix
ground black pepper
These are fantastic ! My husband loves me to make mini-cinnamon crumb cupcakes for work. They are so time consuming. I had a box of Krusteaz Cinnamon Crumb Cake mix in the pantry, so I used this recipe ( doubled...the box was 1 lb. 5 oz.), used a 1 1/2" scoop, rolling the sides and top, but not the bottom ( afraid that the sugar would melt and burn the bottom of the cookies), baked for 12 minutes ( the tops did not crack...didn't matter)...made 36 unbelievably great cookies. Now when he asks for his cinnamon cakes, he is getting these ( and I am sure , with no complaints. He hasn't tasted them yet , but I know he will love them.) Thank you soooooo much !
No one ate them at the cookie contest. I guess the name of the cookie is a turn off.
I too doubled the recipe because I used Krusteaz brand Cinnamon Crumb Cake mix. When they cool, they become very thin, but crispy and delicious! I was surprised by how much I liked the hint of black pepper. What an interesting cookie. I will be making again!
The explanation of this cookie does not do it justice. My family has absolutly fallen in love with them! And they're addictive too!
I loved these. I made them and froze them for my Christmas tray. They are so easy to make I will definately make them again. Don't be afraid to make these.
I just made these, and my family loves them. Everyone was skeptical of the black pepper, but it turned out great. I substituted white cake mix for the coffee cake mix, and added my own cinnamon to the cookie dough. For the powder, I mixed cinnamon and confectioners sugar and added it after the cookies baked. Very yummy, unusual recipe.
Great cookies, everyone that tried them loved them. Although the spice level was a little higher than expected, so next time I plan on cutting back on the cloves. Other than that they were awesome.
These are absolutely amazing! I did have to add about 3/4 cups of flour. I might add alittle more pepper next time but that would be it. Everyone loved them!!! So good with tea or coffee. Very delicate, not chewey or crunchy or too soft. Baked alittle longer than stated until the tops cracked abit.
