Yummy yummy

A few years ago someone on here was telling about German Christmas candies. I looked for them (he said that Aldis carried 'em. Was visiting Hazel that year, in Atlanta, and they have one, so I forced her to take me there) but could not find them. He had also spoken of Stollen, and I found one of them. Because of that, I now get three or four each year. Yummy.

 

Today I'm in a store, and they have a package of cookies. I had no idea what they were, but the name sounded German, so I took a chance.

 

Pfeffernüsse

 

Oh My Goodness Gracious. They is GOOOOOOOOOD. About the size of an oreo, but maybe twice as thick. Dusted with powdered sugar. Don't know what the flavors are, but they sure is good.

 

Onliest problem is, there was only ten in the box, and they was three bucks. 30 cents for a cookie the size of an oreo?!?!?!? That offends my Scots soul. Not to mention my pocketbook.

 

Buuuutttt - they IS good. Try 'em if you ain't never. I think you'll like 'em.

I don't have fresh, but my daughter went to India in October, and had a 5-hour layover in Frankfort. Brought me a Stollen from the airport, from some Dresden bakery that's been making Stollen since the 1600s.

 

Pretty dang good, too.

Ah yes, the memories. Gersthofen had some nice bakeries and a few gasthauses. :o

 

Never went to the field without a stop at the baker for some brot.

 

Those Pfeffernusse are addictive.

I have discovered, to my sorrow, that there are Pfeffernuss and then there are Pfeffernuss.

 

This is what I found, that started this thread.

Nasty. My daughter wouldn't eat 'em. The GRANDGIRLS wouldn't eat 'em. Hard to imagine a cookie that little kids won't eat.

 

I tried to eat 'em. They're not good, but I did pay for 'em.

 

Couldn't do it. Threw a half a sack away.

 

Nasty. I am depressed.

My MIL is German. She makes Christmas cookies every year. Her Anise cookies are very light. Most of her cookies are ground nuts held together with meringue with a simple icing. Some like her almond bread are very hard and intended for dunking. Out of the 3 dozen or so I received on Dec. 23rd I have 2 left.

I loved the German food. From Red Deer, Roe Deer to Carp I ate it all. Even Tried Katy Cristoph's homemade liverwurst, once.

A group of Lts went to a Gasthaus in Oberammergau for supper and told the lovely fraulein to bring us enough food to feed us all. She brought out a tray that was a least 30" across with every good thing you could imagine from eggs to wurst to breads to cheese which we washed down with huge quantities of dunklebach.

I have a special place in my memory for the street corner carts selling bratwurst and brochen with strong brown senf.
