Pepper Cookie's Nana's Recipe! Another Holiday Favorite

 Another family tradition, Making Pepper Cookies.  A little spicy but Nana made a mean Pepper cookie.  Here is her recipe: 


4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. cloves optional
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. allspice
1 cup milk scalded and cooled
1 1/2 tablespoons pepper
1/2 tsp. vanilla
4 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 cup cocoa
1 1/4 cups sugar
10 tablespoons spry (I use Crisco)
3 eggs
chopped walnuts(optional)

In a large bowl place dry ingredients.  Scald milk and let cool.. Beat eggs, Crisco and sugar until well blended. Fold in  cooled milk alternating with dry ingredients. Place by tsp. on ungreased cookie sheet.Bake 375 degrees 10 to 12 minutes.. You can shape them any way you desire.  These I made a little larger than usual but if you like a nice mouthful, these will be exactly what you are looking for.

Note:   I usually frost them using Fat free skim milk(watch your amount),confectionery sugar, a bit of vanilla,,,The icing will dry better if you eliminate any butter or margarine..
