Additional Information

Step 1

Preheat oven to 325ºF. Line cookie pans with parchment paper.

Step 2

In large bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, baking powder, cloves, salt, ginger, allspice, nutmeg and black pepper; set aside. In second large bowl, combine brown sugar and eggs; mix well. Add dry ingredients slowly to egg mixture, forming a soft dough. Roll dough into logs about 1/2 in. thick (about the thickness of a pencil). Cut dough crosswise into 1/4 in. pieces (about the size of a peanut). Sprinkle dough pieces onto prepared cookie pans; separate any stuck together.

Step 3

Bake 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely. Cookies will become crunchy as they cool. Break apart any cookies that have baked together. Store in airtight containers.
