This recipe is based on Bev's Flourless Peanut butter cookies. I wanted to make a gluten free cookie but didn't have enough peanut butter. So I mixed up what I had then added the extra ingredients until it was a thicker consistency.
Black pepper, ground ginger and a lot of crystallized ginger make these pretty spicy. My all time favorite cookie to make at Christmastime, I got the recipe from a friend of my grandmother's about twenty years ago. The dough is chilled and rolled, then cut into round cookies. I've guessed on the amount this recipe makes, it's a lot of cookies but they freeze well.
I made these in response to a request from a Colombian coworker for "something guava". Guava paste can usually be found in the international aisle of well-stocked grocery stores. You may find it in a wrapped bar as opposed to a large flat tin; I find that the canned product is better-tasting and more attractively colored than the stuff in the bar, but use what you can find.
I got this recipe from my neighbor Lois when my girls were very small. They are 31 and 37 now and we still make this every Christmas, every bake sale and every time we want a fudgy tasting sweet. It is the most popular sweet I make.
These tangy cookies are a favorite of mine. Light and tangy. Great when served with Sherbet as a light, company pleasing dessert. A little green coloring may be added but don't get them too green ! They pack well and look great on a cookie tray. Something different and not heavy or too rich.
Pretty to look at too !
Great for a party or any old day of the week. These are sure to please any Star Wars fan. Two kinds of chocolate and the addition of cinnamon make them rather addictive. The recipe comes from "The Star Wars Cookbook: Wookie Cookies and Other Galactic Recipes"
