Have not made this, but is there supposed to be black pepper?

I made a half recipe adding a half teaspoon of pepper. I liked the unusual spicy taste. I used butter instead of shortening and the cookies did not keep their cutter shapes well. They were thin and crispy. I thought they were sweet enough, but if I did I would used a 60% cacao chocolate which I think would compliment them nicely.

I decided to put 2 tsp. of black pepper in these because it doesn't have that info. But if you aren't up on so much spice, I'd suggest making a half batch and trying 1/2 tsp. pepper first. I also doubled the cinnamon, I like it like that. Not a soft cookie, but a good cookie for dipping. The cardamom was a nice addition to them as well.
