      very good! i did these because i didn't think i had any butter, but then I actually didn't have enough oil, so I did about 1/3c oil butter to fill the rest of the 1/2c measure. I also wasn't brave enough to add pepper... I do almost everything mocha-esque so I couldn't really taste the coffee in the cooked cookies, if you want an intense coffee flavor either use more or try the espresso powder
      I only chilled the dough for about 10mins... i couldn't wait! and they turned out well! I baked 6 and froze the rest in ball form. It made 40 cookies for me. (I also didn't have powdered sugar (opps!) to roll them in and they still turned out great!)

      I am eating these cookies right now. They are SOOOOO GOOOOOOOOODD!!! They remind me of my favorite cookies, Fudgy Cappuccino Crinkles from BHG, but not as coffee-y. I did not have sour cream, so I used some vanilla yogurt and a little cornstarch instead. You can't even taste the pepper, just dense and luscious CHOCOLATE! These are so pretty and delicious I don't even mind the mess! I ended up chilling the cookie dough for 3 days, since I got sick in the meantime. I only got a little over 3 dozen, but I'm sure they will all be gone by tomorrow! Thank you for sharing this recipe; I will use it often!
