How to Make Pfeffernusse (You Need to Try This Spicy & Sweet Cookie)!

Pfeffernusse are spice cookies popular in Germany, The Netherlands and Denmark. The popular holiday treat are filled with various ground spices and sweeteners. A few that are found often in recipes are:

  • molasses
  • cinnamon
  • cardamom
  • nutmeg
  • allspice
  • cloves
  • anise
  • black pepper

Anise is the dominant spice, and some choose to omit the black pepper. The fragrant cookies smell similar to gingerbread cookies and, like many cookies, have endless variations.
