In a large mixing bowl, sift together flour, cocoa, baking soda, salt, pepper.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, sugar, and extracts.

Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and mix in the eggs and melted butter, then the nuts.

With damp hands, form the dough into two 14-in. logs and space evenly on baking sheet.

Bake the dough for 25 minutes, until firm. Remove from oven and cool for 30 minutes. Using a long serrated knife, diagonally slice the dough into 1/2 inch thick cookies. Arrange cookies, cut side down on baking sheet and return to oven for an additional 20 minutes.
