German Pfeffernusse Spice Cookies

This was a holiday tradition in my house, making Pfeffernusse. Full of anise and tossed in powdered sugar, they were either chewy or molar-shattering hard depending on whether you pulled them from the oven in time.

Our filial variation was leaving them in those pointy little pillow shapes instead of rolling them into rounds before baking. Cut far deeper holes in the roof of your mouth and made those annual Christmas carb binges a dangerous undertaking, as they should be.

You’re too late, they’ve already cleaned up the river of liquid chocolate that oozed out of a malfunctioning storage tank at a chocolate factory in Westoennen, Germany.

You’re just going to have to get fat the old-fashioned way: visiting relatives over the holidays and self-medicating against them with M&Ms and scotch.

How would you like to pay just $1.00 a year in rent?

You’ll have to be a debtless indigent who’s crazy for Jesus, though, and live in Bavaria. I think I could pull off the indigent bit.

Escape to the Country

by duncanr

lovely to escape the hectic noise and bustle of city life for the relative peace and tranquility of the countryside; to swap the concrete jungle and smell of diesel fumes for – [if only for a few hours] – green and pleasant fields and hills, and the sweet smell of . . . jesus christ, wtf is that ?

smartphones stupid people. . . street near you
