    Eris's Note:

    "These cookies are about red checked fabrics, and aprons, and wonderful smells. You can sandwich these together with cream cheese in the middle..or ice cream..or pumpkin butter…or… Cold milk or coffee are essential!"

      Whisk together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, allspice, cloves, pepper, and salt in a bowl until combined.
    2. 2
      Beat together shortening, butter, and brown sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer at medium-high speed until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes in a stand mixer (preferably fitted with paddle attachment) or 6 minutes with a handheld.

    5. 5
      Bake cookies, switching position of sheets halfway through baking, until undersides are golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes total, then cool on sheets 1 minute. Transfer to racks to cool completely.

      These have a really good flavor... and don't be scared of the cayenne, as it just adds a little spice on the end of the bite. Nothing too potent. I will say that if you make these... MAKE SURE you put the dough in the fridge to chill for a while before you try to roll these puppies into balls. I had no room in the fridge, so I just followed the instructions and it's a big mess to get these rolled and dipped in sugar... and they spread quite a lot. I'll make these again, but chill the dough for about an hour, similar to snickerdoodles or pfefferneuse cookies. Thanks for sharing!
