Hot Pepper Ginger Molasses Cookies.

This is a very good cookie recipe great anytime. They’re a good cookie for your cookie platter during the holidays. They’re so good with a big glass of cold milk. If you love milk like I do. The pepper adds a nice hot and spicy flavor to the cookie. Easy to make just roll in a ball and bake.

We do not frost these cookies but there is a frosting at the bottom you can use if you feel they need frosting.

      Ginger cookie season is a wonderful time of year, especially if one likes ginger cookies year round! Soft ones are very nice and more spice is interesting.

      moonlake,

      This is a very interesting recipe and I just love ginger cookies. Now I know how to make hot pepper ginger cookies. I haven't baked since I tried making ?shoefly? pie, an Amish dessert. Do you know much about Amish desserts? Voted up as interesting and useful. Sharing with followers and on Facebook. Also Pinning and Tweeting.

      JamaGenee,

      That's different. Doesn't sound real good but I know they put jalapeno in just about anything.

      Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.

      I've been reading Joanne Fluke's "Hannah Swenson Mysteries" series. Since the main character owns a shop that sells umpteen varieties of freshly-baked cookies, each book contains recipes. So far there's no recipe for Hot Pepper Cookies, but there IS a recipe for "Hot Brownies" that sounds interesting. It's the only HS recipe made from a mix, not from scratch. Any commercial brownie mix will do because the last ingredient added after mixing everything else per the instructions on the box is one 4-oz can of chopped jalapeno peppers (drained). The peppers enhance the richness of the chocolate with only a minor "burn" after each bite. ;D

      This sounds similar to a molasses sugar cookie that my husband loves except that I use butter flavored crisco in place of the butter and it does not have the pepper. The pepper would spice it up! May have to try that the next time I make cookies. Thanks!

      I don't know why you couldn't use cayenne might be worth a try and see if the taste is a little different. Thanks for stopping by.

      These sound delightful although from your title I expected cayenne pepper rather than black pepper. Wonder what a tsk of cayenne would accomplish in your recipe? I may have to try that. Love all the other spices included.
