Ursula, I have a yen for some Pfeffernus this Christmas like my Grannie
made every year and distributed in Mason jars. Lots of receipes via
Google, of course, but I can't decide on one. You have a favorite you
can share?  Thanks, JPBill

Oh, I seem to have missed the original post! Pfeffernuesse and Springerle
are not exactly my favourite Christmas cookies I never tried making them.
However, I do have a very reliable recipe book for Christmas specialities
that has both cookies in it. I'll try to translate the recipes as soon as
possible and post them. Mind, for Springerle you need a special kind of
mould, as far as I know, but if you can get hold of it - no problem.

Oh betsey,

I'm so sorry, I just don't get round to translating the recipes. I know I
mentioned it before: My DM has cancer and is now in chemo, although at home.
My DF is not coping too well with the situation and since one of my brothers
is on vacation and the other and his wife have full-time jobs, most of the
errands and soothing both parents falls into my quarter. DD has a feverish
cold, so she hasn't been to Kindergarten most of the week, and DH has been
ill, went to see the GP voluntarily (THAT ill!) and was suspected a heart
attack. In hospital they couldn't find anything but want to continue
diagnosing next week. And I had a bad bout of migraines for the best part of
the week. On Friday morning I broke down crying in the kitchen, hoping that
at least the headaches would finally go away, which they did. I haven't
written a single Christmas card so far, hardly any presents for anybody, and
nothing done in the baking section so far. Mind, I think the convection
function of my oven broke down, but the conventional part is still working
so far. Anyway, I hope you will bear with me and wait for next year to try
the recipes. I'll get to work on the translations as soon as I can, I
promise. And, while we're at it, I'll translate the cake recipe for Kate,
too.

U.

Ursula, very sorry about all the illnesses to contend with in your life;
particularly now at this stressful time of year. Please don't give
another thought to a pfeffernus recipe on my account, at least.

My prayers are with you, as are those of others in this group, I'm sure.
