  • cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon allspice
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup unsalted butter , softened
  • 1 egg
  • teaspoons vanilla bean paste (or vanilla extract)


  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, all-spice, and pepper. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat sugar and butter with an electric hand mixer or stand mixer with fitted paddle attachment until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes. Beat in egg and vanilla extract. Slowly add flour mixture to wet mixture, beating until just combined.
  • Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line two large baking pans with parchment paper or spray well with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Scoop about 1½-2 tablespoon of dough, roll into a ball, and place onto prepared pan, about 2 inches apart. Repeat with remaining dough.
  • Bake for 8-12 minutes, or until edges are firm and centers are slightly under-baked. Let cool on baking pan for 10 minutes, then move to a wire rack to cool completely.
