Ingredients for the cookies:

  • 3 ½ C Flour
  • 2 “Eggs” (Recommended: Ener-G Egg Replacer – a potato and tapioca starch blend)
  • 3 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 4 tsp Cinnamon

  • 1 tsp Ground Black Pepper

Directions:

  1. Beat the margarine and sugar on high until creamy. Add in “eggs” and vanilla and blend thoroughly. Add in the flour and all of the spices and mix well with a spoon until all of the dry ingredients are blended in well. Separate the dough into three large balls and wrap in plastic wrap, then refrigerate for one (1) hour.
  2. Once the dough has been chilled, remove and roll it flat on a lightly floured surface to your desired thickness. Cut into shapes with cookie cutters, and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350°F for approximately ten (10) minutes. Cool on a rack and decorate!!!
