While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
As fun to say as fluffernutter - December 23 is National Pfeffernüsse Day!
Chances are you recognize these little biscuits rolled in powdered sugar by sight, if not by name, and they are a Christmas treat to be sure.
The name may translate to "pepper nuts" in German, Dutch and Danish, but this holiday delicacy doesn't include black pepper. Rather, they are full of chopped almonds or walnuts, spices like cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg and anise and then liberally coated with powdered sugar.
This delicacy is considered to be a kid's treat from Saint Nicholas during Christmas in Germany. Have your own pfeffernüsse experience this holiday season, and relish the moment when biting into one unleashes a storm of powdered sugar all over your face.
