These nut-sized cookies are spiced with ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, and pepper. They are called Pepperkaker, in Norway.

Anise Cookies (Springerle)

Rating: 4 stars 17
This is a 100 year old recipe from Germany. I use it every Christmas. Its traditionally served with black coffee to dunk the cookie in. I prefer to eat them when they are still warm as the lemon flavor and the anise is a wonderful combination and the lemon is stronger at that time.

These cookies have been a Christmas family favorite for 20 years. Flaky and buttery, they are worth the effort. Almonds can be substituted for hazelnuts.

Dark Chocolate Peppermint Fudge

Rating: 4.5 stars 17
I double this recipe and put it in a heart-shaped silicone baking mold for Valentine's Day! I prefer using silicone baking molds as it is easier to pop right out of the mold without having to use a cooking/baking spray.
