    The surprise of "pepper" is what makes this a truly fab cookie. You don't taste the pepper but it makes a great cookie!

    This is a very dark gingerbread. If you like very sweet or light colored gingerbread, use another recipe. I think that these are the cutest little cookies. I made mine with a 2.5 inch cutter, so my nephew (3) could take them for snack at preschool. So Cute!!! I would have liked a picture of the puzzle cookies.

    To the previous reviewer, you can find the pictures for the edible puzzles on the handmade gifts for kids gallery in the Christmas area? It was the link from that gallery that led me to this recipe. Thanks for letting us know it's a dark gingerbread, it's one of the many delicious biscuits my kids don't like so I guess that's more for me!
