Pfeffernuesse cookies...HELP!

My grandmother is requesting them and I need to comply. Any idea where to find, preferably Park Slope/Carroll Gardens/Cobble Hill area?? Will venture into Manhattan, if necessary.

Thanks & happy holidays!

  1. Well, Eagle Provisions on Fifth Avenue and 18th St. sells the packaged cookies from German - very good.

    If you want locally made, they are selling them at Lekse's - Fifth Avenue at around 76th St. I think, along with their stellar stollen and other scandinavian specialties.

    1. I'm pretty sure I saw the packaged ones (Bahlsen?) at Fairway in Red Hook.

      1. You can find Stella D'Oro's version in the supermarkets. It's on a par with Bahlsen's, except the Stella D'Oro version has a heavy dusting of powdered sugar whereas Bahlsen's is not powdery.

        1. Sahadi had them this past weekend for $1.00 for a bag. Perhaps they have them still.

          1. Thanks for all the suggestions. I picked up a bag ($8!) at a German crafts/food booth at Columbus Circle. The brand is Wicklein.

            Will try to stop by Sahadi's tonight to try their version.
