Italian Pepper Cookies
 
3½ Cups Flour
2½ Tablespoons Cocoa
½ Tablespoon Ground Cloves
½ Tablespoon Cinnamon
1 Tablespoon Black Pepper
¼ Tablespoon Baking Soda
¼ Tablespoon Baking Powder
 
1 Cup Crisco (Do not substitute Butter or Margarine) 1¼ Cup Sugar
½ Tablespoon Vanilla
1 Large Egg
1 Cup Milk
 
1 Package Chopped Walnuts
 
Preheat oven to 350º
 
Mix all the dry ingredients (except the sugar & walnuts) together.  Set aside.
 
In a large bowl, with blender, cream together Crisco & sugar ?then add egg and vanilla - add milk in last.  Make sure that Crisco, sugar, the egg and vanilla are mixed together well before you add the milk.  If you do not blend in this way it will not mix correctly with the milk.
 
Gradually add dry mixture until well blended.  Add walnuts.
 
Drop by the spoonful on baking sheet about 1-1½?apart.  Bake for 10 minutes.
 
Frost with very thin Royal Icing with a little lemon added to it.
 
For real chocolate lovers you can add chocolate chips or substitute them instead of the walnuts for those who do not care for nuts.

Here is the recipe I use for Royal Icing.
 
3 Egg Whites from Large Eggs
1/2 Tsp Cream of Tartar
1 Pound Powdered Sugar
 
Mix egg whites & cream of tartar at high speed until it forms peaks.  Gradually add powdered sugar until all is mixed well.

i made these this weekend.
my husband didn't like them. then again he doesn't like much of anything that's kind of spicy. i think i might have used a little too much ground cloves. i had whole ones that i ground in a coffee bean grinder.
i'm still deciding whether or not i like them.
