These cookies are BAKED's version of oreos. They have white pepper and fluer de sel hence the name salt and pepper cookies. The pepper surprised me. I thought it would be a much more obvious flavor note in the cookies, but it's just a little spice that kicks in towards the end of a bite. It almost makes you think of nutmeg, since the white pepper is a much more milder in terms of heat/spiciness. It rounds the cookie out nicely though. The filing is very comparable to the oreo filing in terms of texture and flavor. The salt on top is a nice finish to the cookie. But, I almost always prefer salty snacks to sweet ones, so I tend to enjoy that savory note in sweets.
