Friday Night Links: Pfeffernuesse Edition

Post image for Friday Night Links: Pfeffernuesse Edition

Friday Night Links Pfeffernuesse Edition is all about a cookies and links! This time of year, pfeffernuesse is eaten in Germany, Denmark and The Netherlands.  It is a small round biscuit, spicy in taste and many recipes call for ground nuts.  Some even have a chocolate base.  There are many variations, but all are best with a hot beverage of choice.

By the time this is published, it is fitting that I will be eating some pfeffernuesse and a hot beverage.  It seems equally appropriate that you may choose to have some too as you read the various posts I am featuring in the Friday Night Links. In the interest of full disclosure, I was not compensated for this article in any way by bakeries or cookie manufacturers.  If there is anyone who would like to send me some though, I promise to eat and enjoy them.  I don’t remember when I came across these wonderful little cookies, but I just love them. Whether you make them or buy them, they get better with age.  I thought I would use pfeffernuesse as a way to introduce my Friday Night Links this week because I love pfeffernuesse and this week’s variety of articles.

Food of the holidays  and Friday Night Links should be enjoyed! This makes a good segue to today’s picks for Friday Night Links.

The following articles caught my attention:

The selection of blogs is up to the committee of one established by krantcents as a representative of the Academy of Frugal Journalistic Writers. That committee can be influenced by meaningful comments, signing up for my RSS feeds, backlinks, links, trackbacks, Facebook Likes, Twitter, Re-tweets, Digg, StumbleUpon, delicio, Yahoo Buzz, Google Bookmarks and other social media. If you plan on creating a single purpose political action committee (PAC) to buy advertising on my blog to solely influence the committee, please go ahead! Please understand it will not influence the results.

I read more than five hundred (500) articles a week and I highlight just five (5) in my Friday Night Links. Is Friday Night Links Pfeffernuesse Edition only all about the cookies and links?

Enjoy the treats! Great round-up, even listed alphabetically.  I’m guessing you’re a very organized person ;) I love the clean-look of your blog as well.

Have you thought about influencing the committee?

Hey Krant – thanks for including our post!  Some Pfeffernuesse sounds good right now :)

I only think of it at this time of year, but I think they are available all year.

Pfeffernuesse sounds yummy, but they are quite a mouthful to say!

krantcents December 19, 2011 at 12:12 am

They are great with a hot beverage too!

Those cookies are yum!! My daughter and her friend just made snickerdoodles… and they were great. Oh, I love home made cookies.

Fresh baked cookies smell so good right out of the oven! They taste pretty good too. It is tough to pass up a cookie place in the mall when they take out the fresh baked cookies too. Pfeffernuesse remind me of the holiday season because they are generally popular this time of year.

I have to admit that I thought you were making up a word with “PF” in it! 

Thanks for including a link to my article.
