Description

We can thank Grace Children’s Home (where my parents met) for this old and unusual recipe for Peppernuts. This one includes black pepper and uses sour cream rather than butter. The recipe was among those my mother had saved and I decided to try it. The result is a tiny, mild tasting and soft cookie that is best eaten by the handful.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Sour Cream
  • 1 whole Egg
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 2-¼ cups Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ½ teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Black Pepper
  • ½ teaspoons Nutmeg

Preparation

In a large bowl using an electric mixer, cream together sour cream, egg and sugar. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and spices. Slowly add flour mixture to creamed ingredients. Mix well. Add additional flour if needed for the dough to come together. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate or freeze dough.

On a floured surface, roll portions of the chilled dough into “ropes” or “snakes” about 3/8 inch thick. Line up the snakes on a plastic wrap-lined cookie sheet, cover with more plastic wrap and freeze.

When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350ºF and remove several “ropes” from the freezer. Slice into 1/4-inch sections and scatter them on a cookie sheet. Bake for 8 minutes or until lightly browned. Repeat with remaining dough.
