High Camp Cookies

Subject: Marlboro Cookbook Cookie 


I was on your site and have been looking for this cookie recipe forever. 
I thought the name of it was Big House Cookies but can't find it. It was 
a ginger cookie with Black Pepper in it. Could have been Black Pepper Cookies. 
It was in one of the two 80's cookbooks by Marlboro - Morning Fires, Evening Nights 
or the one before it? Any help?

Kindest Regards,


Hello Phyllis,

I have both of those Marlborough Country Cookbooks: "Morning Fires, Evening Lights" and "Towns, Trails, and Special Times". I also have another one called "Fifty from the Trail", which seems to be garnered from the first two, and two others called "Marlboro Chili Roundup" and "Marlboro Cook Like a Man Cookbook".

I did not find any recipe in any of them named "Big House Cookies", nor did I find a cookie recipe with ginger and black pepper in any of them.

I do find a recipe called "Big Cookies" in "Towns Trails, and Special Times." However, this cookie has neither ginger nor black pepper. It has peanut butter, chocolate pieces, oatmeal, dates or raisins, and walnuts. In that same cookbook, I also find a recipe called "High Camp Cookies." That one has brown sugar, molasses, black pepper, and cinnamon, but no ginger. "High Camp Cookies" is the only recipe that I find in any of the Marlboro Country cookbooks that has black pepper in it. If that is the one that you want, please let me know. I do not want to go to the trouble of typing it into an e-mail until I am sure that it is the one. That recipe does not appear to be anywhere on the Internet.

There is a cookie recipe in "Morning Fires & Evening Lights" that contains ginger, cloves, cinnamon, and molasses. However, it does not have any black pepper. It is called "Washboard Cookies." Let me know if this or "High Camp Cookies" is the one you want.

Oh yes that is the one. I couldn't find it anywhere and I have the book but 
it's in storage. If you have it in your heart to type it for me I'd be ever 
so grateful! If I can ever repay the favor, all you need to do is ask! I'm 
a chef for a hurricane crew in Houston, Texas. I have a lot of my own recipes 
and many of them are TexMex. I was also raised in a cooking family with roots 
in Poland and Italy was my next door neighbor. So let me know how I can thank you.

The washboard ones sound good too. But its the High Camp Cookie that I was looking for.

Kindest Regards,


Hi Phyllis,

See below for the recipe. If you find yourself with spare time, look back though my archives and see if you can help with any of my unsuccessful requests. Other than that, just spread the word about the site.



High Camp Cookies
From "Towns, Trails, and Special Times: The Marlboro Country Cookbook"

1 cup  butter or margarine
3/4 cup  brown sugar, packed
3/4 cup  sugar
1  egg
2 Tbsp.  molasses
3 cups  all-purpose flour
2 tsp.  baking soda
2 tsp.  ground black pepper
1 tsp.  ground cinnamon

Cream together the butter and sugars until smooth and fluffy. Beat in the egg 
and molasses.Combine flour, soda, pepper, and cinnamon. Add to first mixture 
and mix thoroughly.Divide into 4 parts and shape into 1-inch thick patties. 
Wrap each in plastic wrap or wax paper; refrigerate about 30 minutes.
Working quickly, roll one part of chilled dough at a time to 1/8-inch thick. 
Roll between 2 pieces of wax paper for easier handling. Cut into desired shapes.
If dough softens and is difficult to move, leave it on wax paper and place it on 
a baking sheet and refrigerate until firm. Remove wax paper and place cookies 
on ungreased baking sheet.
Bake in 400 oven for 7 to 10 minutes. Repeat with remaining chilled dough. 
Return scraps to refrigerator, chill, and reroll.
Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
