READY IN: 37mins
Recipe by Lindas Busy Kitchen

Great anytime, but especially fun to include in your cookie trays during the holidays! Cooking time is per pan.

these are good but I got nothing near 36 cookies, I must have shaped them into larger balls, I also added in a small amount of freshly ground black pepper for extra zip, thank for sharing Linda, will make again!
