    Super excited to try these. Was searching for cookies to make for a cookie exchange, so the fact that is how you came about this recipe makes them perfect; along with the fact that I have German heritage. I always check Simplyrecipes first and you never disappoint (regular & beet hummus were hits this Thanksgiving!!!).

    Made these (gluten free) and my mom said they were the best spice cookies she’s had (she’s almost 90 – she’s had a lot of spiced cookies). Even day 1 they were soft and spicy – if they do “season” over a day or two great but even if they don’t… great. I used regular black pepper and you couldn’t see it – I don’t know if white pepper would make a difference – I’ve never had white pepper. Will definitely make again – likely before the month is out as Christmas is approaching… Thanks

    These turned out perfectly! They were easy and delicious with or without the icing. I made them for my German friends and they said they were the best pfeffernüsse they had ever tried and the mother ate three even though she was on a diet. Everyone loved them and they were all eaten that day. I will definitely make them again. Thank you very much for this wonderful recipe, I just loved making these and loved eating them even more.

    Great recipe! I substituted with 1 1/2 cups Pamela’s gluten free baking mix and 1 cup of chickpea flour and they are delicious. My mother is Celiac and delighted with them. Thank you.
