Something is missing here. Loretta needs to go back and check her recipe. I think she got the titles mixed up. "Pfeffernerse" means "pepper nuts". It's supposed to be a spice cookie with pepper added to zip up the spices even more. It's shaped like a nut, but it doesn't contain nuts. This recipe is for a nut cookie, like Pecan Dreams, which in Scandinavia is made with almonds.

I absolutely love the texture that the bakers ammonia gives this cookie. They tasted like little puffs of sugar. I would add a generous amount, 1-3 tsp, of vanilla extract next time. Thanks for the post. It was fun to see what bakers ammonia can do to a cookie.
