Are you looking for a cookie that is a little different. A cookie that is not just sweet, but also has a bit of heat to it?
Look no further, black pepper shortbread cookies are the cookie for you.
Before we go any further, I am going to make a little confession. This recipe has sugar in it. Yes, white sugar.
Don’t worry, I have not given up my clean eating ways. Sometimes even the cleanest eater needs a little treat. Shortbread cookies have always been my favorite and my indulgence. I have made Earl Grey Shortbread bars, chocolate dipped coffee shortbread, and my very favorite, Lavender shortbread cookies. They are all scrumptious.

Shortbread is super easy to make and typically only requires 3 or 4 ingredients. I can’t complain about that.
Black pepper shortbread
Buttery, sweet and peppery. The perfect combination of flavors.
