Norwegian Biscuits: Peppernøtter
Peppernøtter, translating directly to “pepper nuts,” are a seasonal treat of German origin, and are quite popular around Christmas in several Nordic countries. Recipes vary, but a healthy measure of cinnamon, ginger and cardamom are a safe bet when encapsulating that festive Scandinavian spirit.
Mix together the butter and sugar then add the eggs one at a time.
Add the cream then the other dry items.
Weigh the dough and seperate into equally sized balls, place on a lined baking tray and press down.
Baked until golden/light brown.
These biscuits have a soft ‘cakey’ texture.
