Grandma Rubin’s Peppernuts

These spicy little biscuits are an age-old treat that will update your prime-time snacking. The peppernut recipe comes from the founder's real-life great-grandma. These gingery biscuits are a nostalgic treat in German culture. Traditionally baked and served during the Christmas season, some recipes call for small amounts of pepper and ground almonds or walnuts, hence the name peppernuts. While Grandma Rubin's recipe has neither, what they lack in pepper and nuts is made up for in rich, gingery goodness. With hints of cinnamon and clove, these tiny cookies are the perfect complement for wine, coffee and tea, and even ice cream, beer and blue cheese; or just enjoy them simply on their own.

Though this is an old-world recipe, Peppernuts have a new, distinctive and provocative ginger taste that will bring you back for more. Here's to the sweet times of yesteryear, to celebrating the here and now, to new memories together.
