Ok, so years ago I was watching MS do a Christmas TV special on her 10 favorite cookies.
I watched the show, taped the show so I could go back and check for ingredients or whatever at a later date when I more had time to concentrate. I even made one of her recipes right along with her on the show, pausing as I needed to do whatever, play catch up. The cookies I made with her was her spice crinkle cookies or some such name like that. They originally turned out awful, flat as a pancake, one big run together mess. I tossed it and got advice to get new baking powder/baking soda as they have a shelf life and maybe mine was up. To the store I went bought new and again followed Martha step by step. There were large amounts of certain spices I think (and I could be wrong here) the addition of black pepper and a huge amount of cloves with the other usual suspects being ginger (2 kinds of ginger, ground&raw grated) and cinnamon. Anyway, THEY WERE INCREDIBLE and yes, must have been flattening dead soda and powder.
Here's the thing. I have searched on YouTube and everything else I can think of and can not find the recipe using every combination of words to help locate this recipe. It was a Christmas or Holiday favorite cookie swap 10 cookie show that I think might have even been a 2 hr special. If you are able or know what I'm trying to find please let me know. I am really wanting to make this wonderful very different cookie but without the recipe, I'm stumped. Thank you.
