I have a great neighbor, Jack, who like most of us gets naostalgic with the onset of the holiday season. Moms, Grandmas, kitchen delights, aromas, tastes, flavors and textures long since missed haunt us from childhood. Longing for hands-on and tastebud triggers, we search for recipes of delight. Jack called night aksing if I was familiar with an old fashion German cookie, the Pfeffernusse. So happens, I am and even have an authentic recipe from a work colleague from 1986 in Wichita, Kansas! Jack was excited that I might just be able to recreate this childhood memory and taste of the 'pepper nut' cookie.
