Pfeffernusse Cookies is one of the most favorite:
given below is the recipe:
2 cups sifted flour
3/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
3/4 teaspoon double-acting baking powder
3/4 teaspoon ground allspice
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon mace
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon finely ground white pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground anise seeds
1 cup honey
3 Tablespoons shortening
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Sift together flour, cardamom, baking powder, allspice, salt, mace, baking, soda, pepper, and anise.
Heat the honey but do not boil. Add the shortening, then cool. Beat in the egg, then stir in dry ingredients just until blended. Let the dough rest for about 10 minutes to allow it to stiffen.
Shape dough into 1-1/2-inch balls. Place the balls onto a greased cookie sheet (you may flatten them slightly if you wish).
