There’s something truly cozy and very nostalgic about pebernødder (translates to pepper nuts), a kind of spice cookies that we eat throughout the holiday season in Denmark. In Denmark, pebernødder is usually something you’ll bake with your kids, as they’re easy to make, and rolling the dough into small balls is fun. Though pebernødder aren’t just for kids. In fact, the seasoning gives them a very grown-up flavor, and they pair exceptionally well with gløgg (Danish mulled wine).
And now while you’re at it, why not bake an extra batch and fill a nice mason jar with homemade pebernødder. They’ll make an excellent host/hostess gift for any of the holiday gatherings.
