Pink peppercorn Cookies

February 28, 2011 |  Category:   the biz

I think Mark first made these pink peppercorn shortbread cookies 2 years ago. We instantly liked them. We liked the subtle peppery aftertaste (entirely different from black pepper, btw), and we liked the pink flecks on the cookie which is why we offered them during our first Valentine’s Day collection. It just goes to show you how long it takes sometimes for us to push cookies out into the world as their own package. They’ve gone through a few different incarnations, including a linzer cookie which we had available for a limited time, but we’ve finally settled on this final version of the cookie with a red currant chocolate filling from this year’s Valentine’s Day box. (As a related note, you may or may not remember that our Coconut 5 Spice White Chocolate Cookies also emerged from a few incarnations, first as a biscotti, then as a macaroon, and finally to the drop cookie).

They’re finally for sale on their own here or in our Etsy shop. Also, can I say how excited I am about our new website, which hopefully go live in the Spring?

And…new camera FTW!

    BTW – The price of stand up pouches with pour spouts and easy seal drink boxes are now small business friendly. That mean Mark can sell us those beverages (as concentrates). Yep. Yep. Get on it. 😉

    I can certainly vouch for the cookies mentioned. The shortbread is perfection, the chocolate is delicious and the pink peppercorns are not scary peppery!

    My list of favorites grows, but those Coconut 5 Spice White Chocolate Cookies are always at or near the top. It’s an interesting combination of flavors that works perfectly.
