This ginger cookie recipe is a classic. The black pepper may seem odd, but really gives these cookies a flavour kick! This recipe makes a large batch, so is great for cake sales or Christmastime.
Great recipe! Easy to make and work with. Children of my girl scout troop and husband love it. - 19 Dec 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
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. - 12 Dec 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
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. - 08 Aug 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
