Prairie Heritage Traditional Peppernuts are flavored with a blend of spices and Anise Oil. The tiny cookies boast a unique flavor and addictive aroma.
Peppernuts have been a tradition for many German families for centuries. Traditionally, the dough was packed in crocks and stored in the fruit-room of the cellar so that the spices blended smoothly with the sugar and flour. Dough was shaped into ropes and then sliced to form tiny round cookies. Some preferred to roll the dough flat and cut it in using thimbles.
