Keto Pfeffernüsse

Have you ever had a Pfeffernüsse? As a special request from my husband, this was my first time making them… And wow, let me just say these are fantastic! They have a lot more zing than gingerbread, making them a bit more of an “adult” cookie that goes great with coffee or something stronger.

Try them out and let me know what you think in the comments below!

  1. I was wondering if you put the dough in for 2 two hours intervals or 1 two hour interval. The recipe in both step 3 an 4 say to wrap the dough and put in the refrigerator. Each time for two hours.
    Is this correct or is there a typo?
    Thanks for your response to my first question.
