[FHCx358] National Pfefferneuse Day

8 daaaaaaays remaining!


Bless you!

Pfefferneuse, or more appropriately “pfeffernüse,” are little spice cookies from central Europe. They are traditional to December in Germany, Denmark, and the like, specifically around the time of the feast of Saint Nicholas around December 5/6. Despite being named “pepper nut,” these contain no nuts. Or peppers. Who comes up with this anyway?

The cookies came over here with the Dutch Menonites, so they aren’t too unfamiliar for most living in the Eastern states. They aren’t hard to find in grocery stores around this time of year.


“I’m glad they’re soft,” AK exclaimed. They taste gingerbready and cardamomy and such and so on. If these were around during the rest of the year, we would probably get them again.

Tomorrow is National Egg Nog Day!
