Salt and Pepper Cookies

You have read the title right.  This cookie is salt and pepper.  Black pepper in the coookie dough and sea salt sprinkled on top.  Either you will like this or not.  Don’t think there is much of a gray area here.  A co worker described the pepper as pushing the chocolate which I think is a great describtion.  Give them a try.
