Terry’s Pfeffernussen by way of Lydia

1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs, well-beaten
1 cup flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
1/2 tsp nutmeg, freshly ground
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp allspice
1 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp cardamom
1 tsp salt

Heat the oven to 350.

Cream the butter and sugar together, then add the eggs and mix until thoroughly combined. Whisk together the flour, leaveners, and spices. Add to the butter-sugar-eggs and mix to combine. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto a greased or parchment-lined baking sheet.

Bake for 10-14 minutes, or until brown around edges. Cookies will be pretty soft in the middle. Makes around 24.
