Later: While searching for a recipe, I used the Google automatic translation feature to view this German page and found its Engrish delightful. If features both "first-class prescriptions" an "mad prescriptions," as well as some questions submitted by people having difficulty with the proper preparation of featured dishes. My favorite; "assitance my roast does not succeed to me which is I to do?" A desperate cry for help, if ever I've heard one.
But I grew weary of searching through sites trying to find a pfeffernuesse recipe that looked as though it would produce something similar to the commercial cookies with which I have long associated the season. So, Stella D'Oro it will be.
