Small, round biscuits are spiced with nutmeg, cinnamon and ground cloves. They can normally be found in Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands around Christmastime. Enjoy them with a cup of tea or coffee.

I have been making these for years and everyone adores them, the only change I have made is to only cook them 8-9 minutes, 12 is much too long, you want to take them out when they are still somewhat soft as they will harden a bit as they cool. This way you will have a softer, chewier cookie. - 09 Apr 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Not at all like traditional Pfeffernuesse. Dry, not very much spice flavor, and much too much molasses. Would not make again, will continue to look for better recipe. - 09 Dec 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The dough is a bit stiff to work with but the results are excellent! This is a spice cookie with a wonderful little "bite" that develops the main spice flavor. Excellent with a cup of hot tea. - 23 Dec 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
