In my first attempt I was missing anise and cardamom. Still turned out fantastic and I must say, since I was out of black pepper, I tried white pepper and they were AAAMMMAAAZZZIIINNNGGG! What helped my recipe is fresh, grated nutmeg. Really brought out the flavors. I have since then acquired anise flavor but cardamom I just can't do so I will be working on this recipe this weekend and with anise this time. I did see the recipe calling to add anise to the dry ingredients, but I decided against it and rightly so with so many comments advising to add anise to wet ingredients. All in all, a recipe even my mother loves and she is a pfeffernusse snob...lol. Thanks for the tips and happy baking.
