Eggless Walnut-Black Pepper Cookies

I was searching for some spicy cookie with peppercorns, while googling i found an interesting cookies here. Initially i was intrigued about the addition of ground black pepperin cookies but trust me this cookies tastes absolutely nutty, mildly hot with mild sweetness. Actually the addition of black pepper gives a subtle hotness to this delicious cookies. Whole walnuts grounded as coarse powder along with all purpose flour makes this fabulous cookies though the original recipe goes a cup walnuts but i went for half a cup of walnuts, hence i couldnt stop adding some flour to make this scrumptious cookies.

We dont need more introduction about black peppercorns, this spice have loads of medicinal value, my kids hates this spice, obviously i add this spice in powder form even in pongal. None can notice the addition of pepper powder in this cookies, since honey and sugar is used in this cookies.
