pfeffernusse1

You don’t know how long I’ve been waiting for this time of year to get here! I absolutely love the Holiday season….and more importantly, the baking adventures it brings. I’ve already been baking all kinds of cookies and having tons of fun trying new recipes. Like these Pfeffernüsse – German spice cookies, traditionally made at Christmas.

pfeffernusse2

I first fell in love with these in college while taking a German course. My professor had just gotten back from Germany and brought us a whole array of German Christmas cookies to try. These were among them, and ooooh boy, were they good! Since then, I’ve been searching for the perfect recipe for Pfeffernüsse, so I can make them at home. This recipe is a Martha Stewart, and while it’s close….it’s not exactly what I’m looking for. However, the cookies were delicious (sort of like a molasses cookie) and my co-workers seemed to really enjoy them.

Pfeffernüsse
-Martha Stewart

1 1/4 cups confectioners’ sugar
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 cup firmly packed light-brown sugar
1/4 cup unsulfured molasses
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350º. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Place confectioners’ sugar in a brown paper bag (I used a bowl).
In a medium bowl, combine flour, pepper, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, cloves, and baking soda. Set aside.
Place butter, brown sugar, and molasses in a bowl of an electric mixer fitted with paddle attachment. Beat on medium speed until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in egg and vanilla. With mixer on low speed, add flour mixture; beat until just combined. Pinch off dough in tablespoon amounts; roll into 1 1/4-inch balls. Arrange balls 1 1/2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets. (Dough can be frozen at this point, covered tightly with plastic wrap, up to 1 month).

Bake until cookies are golden and firm to the touch with slight cracking, about 15 minutes. Transfer sheets to a wire rack to cool slightly, about 10 minutes. Working in batches, place cookies in paper bag; shake until well coated. Let cool completely on wire rack. Store in airtight container.

And now here’s the part that I’m most excited about: my first giveaway!!! It being cookie season and all (and because they started playing Christmas music on XM radio!), I thought it only fitting to give you a little something to get you started.

creative-cookies-450x565

I recently saw this book reviewed on The National Cookie Network blog and immediately bought one. Great tips and pictures showing you how to perfectly decorate cookies for any occasion (with an entire section dedicated to Christmas cookies!). Perfect for a cookie decorating idiot like myself. And since it’s so fantastic, I decided to get an extra copy for you!! AND since you can’t make great holiday cookies without some fabulous cookie cutters: this Holiday Linzer Cookie Cut-Out set is yours as well. Woo Hoo!!

    Karl Reply:

    Heyy Aria…… My high school friend’s mom used to make them and she passed away a few years ago. While talking with my friend last year,….telling him that I missed his mother’s Pizzelle’s, I was determined to learn how to make them. I went to a local Kitchen store near me, bought a machine (they’re like a waffle iron), tought myself the recipe and vouilla!! They are sooo good and so easy to make and the batter is so versatile to adapt something to. Now…..I’m not a chef or baker…I’m a plain guy,…..just taught myself how to make them, now everyone wants them! So don’t be intimidated by not learning how to make them! They’re easy, and you’ll love them, and so will everyone who tries them! Good luck and enjoy!! :-)

My friends grandmother, who recently passed away, always brought an extra tin of cookies to give to me because she knew how much I loved them. They are the best and I am afraid that the recipe may have died with her. Wish us luck! However, any cookie that my kids want to make is always a fun adventure!

  39. Hi, I am a German and love Pfeffernüsse! Traditionally Pfeffernüsse have a white glaze. It’s some kind of thin icing. They really taste better when you use icing rather than simple powdered sugar to coat them. Like this : http://www.amapur.de/blog/wp-content/uploads/2008/12/pffernusse.jpg

Anyway, she’s an American with a Norse background who has travelled all over the area collecting authentic recipes. She is well known and has written several cookbooks. I believe one of them is on Christmas baking alone. Good luck!

  66. Oops. I didn’t tell you my cookies. Does all count? I was thinking about a chocolate shortbread, topped with homemade marshmallow and drizzled with chocolate ganache. This is a holiday cookie because if I make it any other time I WILL EAT EVERY SINGLE ONE!!!
    Last year I make Danish Pastries, dough is a pain, but totally worth it; 3 kinds of spritz cookies; peppermint brownies and lemon bars and then a German Chocolate brownie thing. Oh yeah, and I tried to make rugelach but seriously, what a pain. I know, like spending 3 days on laminated dough isn’t; but, oh, the possibilities and all so delicious. So, this year chocolate marshmallow cookies and maybe pfefferneuse or Mexican wedding cookies or something else I can’t resist from Beatrice Ojakangas. I’m kinda squirelly that way.

    My Christmas favourites are chocolaty Pfeffernüsse, buttercookies, chocolate-ginger crescents, homemade truffles and of course the Austrian all time favourite Vanillekipferl. Christmas just isn’t right without them. But i have to admit I love most every cooky that crosses my path around Christmas, so any will be fine.

She used regular chocolate and tinted white chocolate with a plethora of decorations from jimmies to nuts to chopped fruit. Finally this year I think I am going to have time and I’ve been buying a couple containers of sprinkles every week.

  91. This looks delicious! Do you have a list of the different types of German cookies you get? I plan to go to the local German Christmas markets here in the UK, so hopefully will be able to try them!
