Pfeffernusse Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
My cookies look nothing like the photo. The 'dough' (if you can call it that) was VERY crumbly (as several other reviewers stated). I actually added tablespoons of water to get it to clump together enough to form balls. I found this recipe very frustrating and although the taste is definitely new and different to me, I probably won't make it again because I thought it was a lot of work! I made balls the size that would fit into my fist, and ended up with a little over 5 dozen (not 18 as the recipe states). Also rather than try the powdered sugar topping, I used another reviewers recommendation for a sugar glaze. I don't care for anise so I used vanilla on the glaze. These cookies are really different.
