A Cup of Glee - Weekly Newsletter - pfeffernusse cookies

Welcome to the Blog for Fancy That!

We proudly call our blog “A Cup of Glee.”

This week's post, just in time for the winter holidays, is a post on a cookie that continues to delight after centuries...the PFEFFERNUSSE!

Thank you for stopping by. Enjoy!

The cookie's name, pfeffernusse, is taken from German meaning "pepper nuts." The original cookie had black pepper in the recipe, but did not allow the cookie to get "hot" from the pepper. So many variations exist today, that you can search for hours and hours looking for the perfect one. Let me help a little and start you here for a great recipe!

If you aren't certain what the cookie looks like, the next picture will remove all doubt!

You can just taste the powdered sugar from this photo, and more, the anice, the pepper, and the touch of ginger.

Once you have tasted these fine holiday cookies, you will make the a tradition year after year, and if you don't care to cook them as so many of our friends do (or don' friend even joked that the only reason she has a kitchen is because it came with the house!), the you could click on the picture below to start your search for those pre-baked cookies that can be delivered to your door!

So there you have it! Pfeffernusse and you! Or, pfeffernusee and your guests! We will return to our weekly newsletter format including Table Talk, The Butler and Wedding Bells after the first of the year. Until then, stop by often, and be sure to read the older posts.

Until my next post, please remember:
Suggestions tolerated, compliments always welcomed. Tell your friends, and visit often.
