  • 2 1/4 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup softened unsalted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • Cooking Directions

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    Combine the first six ingredients (sugar through white pepper) in a small bowl; reserve 1/2 cup in a shallow dish for rolling the cookies in right before baking. Add cocoa to the small bowl with remaining sugar/spice mixture. Stir to blend.

    Cream butter with an electric mixer until fluffy. Add the spiced cocoa mixture and beat until combined. Add eggs and vanilla, then add flour and baking powder, mixing at low speed until combined.

    Roll dough into tablespoon-sized balls. Roll balls in reserved sugar mixture and arrange 2 inches apart on parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes.

    Cool on sheet pan for two minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
