These spicy-sweet little cookies full of nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon, and cloves are a classic German holiday treat. Their name, Pfeffernusse, translates as “pepper nuts”, owing to their plump round shape and the unusual inclusion of black pepper in the delicious homemade dough. Give them a try this holiday season – Santa has been known to leave a few extra gifts in exchange for a plateful of these!
Better watch out, better not cry, better not pout, I’m telling you why: these treats are only available from October – December each year, but don’t worry – like Frosty the Snowman, they’ll be back again someday!
1 lb of rich, sweet, slightly spicy Pfeffernusse per order
Approx 24 -30 cookies per pound.
