I made these cookies to celebrate National Pfeffernüsse day. When I read that there was a day dedicated to Pfeffernüsse, I got thoroughly excited. You see, my cat - whose name is Hubert, is nicknamed Pfeffernüsse. I don’t know how it happened, or when, but there you have it. He’s round and white and brown, much like these cookies, not that I knew what they were until I saw that there was a date dedicated to this uniquely named confection. Pfeffernüsse or German Gingerbread Cookies, are delicious, fragrant, spicy, and sweet. They’re ideal for celebrating the holiday season,
when a little extra warmth is always welcome.
