Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

Pfeffernuesse - LHJ

This is a German cookie that has to 'ripen' for several weeks to allow for the cookies to soften.  Translation?  Pepper Nut.  Need Candied Lemon Peel?  I found mine at

3 Large Eggs
1 Cup Sugar
3 Cups Flour
1/4 Tsp Baking Powder
1/4 Tsp Salt
1/8 Tsp White Pepper
1 Tsp Cinnamon
1/8 Tsp Cloves
1/2 Candied Lemon Peel, Chopped
1/4 Cup Whole Blanched Almonds, Ground.
1/2 Cup Confectioners Sugar
1 Apple Slice

In a large bowl, beat together eggs and sugar.  Add Flour, Baking Powder, Salt, Pepper, Cinnamon and Cloves and beat until will mixed (scrape bowl occasionally).  Beat in lemon peel and almonds until well combined.  Wrap and chill for 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line 2 large cookie sheets with silicone mats OR non stick foil.  Roll dough out onto lightly floured surface until 1/4 inch thick.  Cut out circles with a 1 inch cookie cutter and place on cookie sheets - repeat as necessary until all dough is used.  Bake 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on wire racks.  Place confectioners sugar in a large, air tight container.  Add cooled cooked and shake until well coated.  Add an apple slice.  Allow to sit for 2 to 3 weeks.

These cookies should to be frozen.
