for work, we had an international thanksgiving and asked people to bring dishes representing their home country or culture. i decided to make pfeffernusse, a german cookie that my grandma always made for christmas. this is a modernized recipe – so they were ready to eat right away. grandma’s pfeffernusse get made at thanksgiving and put in a pillowcase til christmas!

i used this recipe with no alterations. one of the commenters recommended coating in powdered sugar before baking so i tried that for the first batch. they tasted just fine, but it gave it a very blotchy look. for the rest, i did them the standard way – rolling in powdered sugar after baking, while still warm. these are some of my favorite cookies!


About Liv

i have a lot of hobbies. i cook and bake – usually, from scratch. i paint, though not as often as I would like. i love to make pottery on the wheel, though this hobby fell by the wayside while I was in grad school. now that I’ve finished, I’m looking forward to potentially getting back into ceramics and devoting more time and energy to all of my hobbies. my mom got me hooked on refinishing garage sale or thrift shop furniture into beautiful, rich pieces for the home. and my true love is crochet – i love the feeling of achievement in taking a ball of yarn and a hook and turning it into a beautiful afghan or purse or set of coasters. in some way or another, all of these hobbies center around making things – thus, creation nation.
