1 1/2 teaspoons
1 1/2 teaspoons
ground black pepper
unsalted butter, softened
packed brown sugar
Great recipe! Easy to make and work with. Children of my girl scout troop and husband love it.
Truly easy. I roll the dough out in powdered sugar. Once I ran short of molasses and made it up with honey, it worked fine! A simple glaze of powdered sugar, corn syrup, water and vanilla makes a good icing for these and dries shiny and hard. Lemon extract would be good too.
easy to make and taste good (one important ingredient is cinnamon powder...it enriches the aroma of the cookies)
I think it is a bit too sweet, suggest to reduce the amount of sugar.
I made this recipe and it's awesome. I didn't put as much of the cloves as it called for but that was personal preference. I was looking for a recipe that was like what my Gramp used to make. This was almost exactly the same. I baked for 6 to 7 minutes and checked. They were usually done. They were great for dipping in tea!!! :)
amazing! cut beautifully, a definate keeper. It was quite amusing to watch my sister try to figure out the "new" spice I used - she didn't believe me when I told her that its Pepper! :)
The taste is good, but these are more like "gingerbread" than "ginger snaps." I think of ginger snaps being thin and crispy, but these turned out think and cake-like. They didn't last long, so I'm giving them 4 stars, but if they'd been more like ginger snaps they would've gotten 5 stars. Thanks for sharing!
This cookie is tasty, but holy muscles! you get a work out with this dough! I added more liquid for it to come together, but it was still really difficult to roll out. I played around with it then decided enough was enough and my exercise was over for the day. I froze the rest for pie crust or another cookie exercise day. This bakes up very nice in the oven and you can end up with crunchy cookies if you bake longer or have a thinner dough (yeah, mine wasn't so thin) or soft if you have thick dough and cook a bit less. They are full of ginger flavor, so if you like that, odds are you'll like this cookie. Thanks for the recipe!
I used all fresh spices and topped the cookies with lavender vanilla bean sugar from our local Savory Spice Shop (brushed on olive oil and sprinkled sugar). I used white pepper instead of black. I refrigerated the dough overnight. I cut very thin, small cookies and baked them for 10-12 minutes instead. They were crispy ginger snaps and I got the most compliments on cookies that I've ever received. Very tasty! Thanks for the recipe!
