I just wanted to say that, seeing as this recipe has no reviews, that I have had cookies very, very similar to these and they were GREAT! You would never guess they have black pepper in them. I was reluctant to make these at first but I was baking Christmas cookies with my aunt, who had made them before from a recipe in a Mexican cookbook. If this is a good recipe, then these cookies will tun out great. Don't be scared of the pepper!



I was looking for a cookie recipe that I could make to bring somewhere that I could enjoy as well. I'm always watching my weight so i wanted a low fat cookie that didn't taste low fat. I tried this recipe and these cookies are fantastic. This recipe will definately become one of my signature dishes from now on. I couldn't find candied citron so i made my own version by boiling lemon peals and then simmering them in simple syrup (1 c sugar, 1 cup water) for about 20 minutes. Everything turned out great.



Out of all the different types of cookies I made for Christmas, these were the most popular. It was good to have a cookie that was a bit different from the rest. Very easy to make. Thanks for a great recipe, Mary!
