    1. Surprisingly, they're not too bad! I think the flour helps and I made a vanilla icing for them as well.

  2. I thought these sounded strange at first but then I remembered that I have eaten chocolate that has been made with either salt or pepper. Not strange at all!

    1. They're really good. You can't taste much of the pepper - the cinnamon and cardamom plus all the flour negates all the pepper!
