Very tasty, my mom really loved them. They were a lot like the molasses cookies my mom always made, but so much easier and faster. I loved the texture, so soft on the inside. The powered sugar makes them look extra special. Just beware you don't over cook them! I wasn't expecting them to really be done in 7 minutes but they were.

Delicious!!!! And so pretty!!! Just letting you know the pepper isn't mentioned in the directions, but easy to guess when to add.

These are great cookies. The dough was easy to work with and rolled into balls nicely. The cookies are moist with a soft interior. These pfeffernuesse are different from the german pfeffernuesse we make during the holidays. I really like them. The spices and molasses give a great flavor.

Blue Rose you Rock! Thank you for the flavours from my childhood. I loved these tasty cookies. I didn't have any nutmeg so I subed with mace. They turned out perfect. An excellant cookie, spicy, light in texture, but not dry, well flavoured, not overly sweet. Once again thanks for sharing.

Are they really Scandinavian? I've always believed them to be German. The name is German, too. Translated this means 'pepper nuts', probably because the cookies contain pepper and the shape is similar to that of a walnut. Wherever they come from, they are also popular in Switzerland. The cookies may be included in the bag you get from Father Christmas who appears not at Christmas but December 6. The cookies are lovely served with a cup of tea or mulled wine. It's not the type that goes well with coffee. I would never want to eat them in the summer, but they are lovely in the winter. Well, I'm speaking about Swiss winters with lots of snow :)
