Pepper cookies is one of the best and most common varieties of Christmas baking in Norway. So common that you can buy readymade dough in most grocery stores, but they get even better with a homemade dough.

Pfeffernüsse – German Pepper Nuts – Tyske Peppernøtter

A recipe for some classic German Christmas cookies from
the “Electric Company’s Christmas Cook Book” published in 1968

This recipe is from a rather thick booklet I picked up at a flea market a couple of years ago and both typography, photos and illustrations are arch typical for the late sixties. Hardly readable cover titles, inside headings in Cooper Black, minimalistic photos and illustration that could have been taken from an Eastern European children’s book from the the same era. On the other hand there are some really good recipes to be found in this prime example of sixties nostalgia 😉
