Pot-ent Pfeffernüsse


Pfeffernüsse are tiny spice cookies, popular as a holiday treat in Germany, Denmark, and The Netherlands, as well as among ethnic Mennonites in North America. And of course, we added cannabis to make them even better! These potent little sugar dusted spice cookies are an important part of the holiday celebration for many cultures, but we like to make them all year round because they are sooooooo yummy! Bake up a batch for yourself with this easy to follow recipe.
