Pfeffernüsse (Iced German Spice Cookies)
Perhaps the perfect Christmas cookie for spice lovers, Pfeffernüsse are German spice cookies that are also favored in the Netherlands and Denmark. They're packed full of cinnamon, cloves, allspice, ginger, and even a bit of pepper, hence the name "pepper nuts." With a nice chewy texture and glossy sweet icing, these traditional German cookies will quickly become family favorites!

Mandelspritzgebäck (German Christmas Almond Cookies) from Food.com: I can't remember a single holiday season without this typical German cookie recipe. My Mom and my mother-in-law bake these cookies. As a child we helped bake them, and the fun part for us kids was always to "style" the cookies. I prefer them with any icing or decoration.
