Pfeffernüsse are one of the oldest of German cookies and an excellent addition to any Christmas cookie plate. Dunk them in coffee, tea, our Mulled Apple Cider, or Real Deal Hot Chocolate. Or don’t dunk, and just eat.
Make-ahead note: You can bake the cookies ahead of time and freeze them for up to 2 months. When ready to serve, bring them to room temperature and roll in the spiced sugar.
