Cocoa Shortbread Cookies with a Twist.

The twist is that they are actually SALT and PEPPER Cocoa Shortbread Cookies.

These are super simple to put together. And they are slice and bake. In a matter of minutes the dough came together. After 4 hours or so in the fridge they are ready to slice and bake. Super Simple!!

While they make good chocolate cookies I really couldn’t taste the pepper much (and I put in what was called for). I made 1/2 the recipe which gave me 11 cookies. And we liked the chocolate cookie partso I will probably make them again ’cause they are so simple to make.

Thanks to Tia of Buttercream Barbie. These were actually last week’s pick but I am running a week behind again. The recipe is on her blog and on page 128 of Dorie’s Baking From My Home to Yours.
