Rose and Woody’s sweet and savory cookie PEPPARKAKORS profoundly represents my personal vision for my baking business “One Crumb At A Thyme”. Our daily goal is to produce a series of desserts which:
“Define the marriage of sweet and savory in desserts form by creating the union of unique flavor combinations that promise to:
Excite your pallet, intrigue your mind, uniquely satisfy your taste buds while nourishing your soul’s deepest desire taste-wise in each and every unique bite.
This recipe meets my criteria for success for me and my business. Therefore, effective immediately, I will be adding this recipe ( with my personal additions ) as an option in my product line.
PEPPARKARORS is a cousin to my Speculoos Chocolate Bar; similarities will be discussed in full in the summary below.
This recipe is from Rose Levy Beranbaum’s new baking book:
HOW IT WORKS:
Each week we as Alpha Bakers, are assigned one of the recipes from Rose’s new baking book and we as a group all over the world bake the same recipe at the same time. Our objective is to share our successes, where we got stumped, what questions did we have along the way, our joys and in some cases our baking shortcomings.

FULL DISCLOSURE: This week did cheat and I did not follow the recipe verbatim. However, I added a unique blend of ingredients complimenting the vision for my product line.
Let the baking begin:
The dough was divided into fourths, wrapped in plastic wrap and molded into each of the four molds we made earlier.
I found that from one roll, there was only half the amount of dough for one cookie. I baked it anyway to experiment on the difference in texture compared to the 1/8th inch standard cookie and MY MY MY was it ever so tasty.
Note to self to experiment further….
Now for the Tasting…..
