Pfeffernuesse cookies...HELP!

  • 7

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.

            1. Sahadi's is selling Lambertz chocolate pfeffernusse for $1/bag. They also have chocolate-covered Christmas trees for $1.85 and "Brandy Beans" for $1.95. Charlie is making a big sell on the pfeffernusse.

                For those who have access to trader joes, they are offering pfeffernusse too.

                I didnt say so but I like the stuff that Eagle sells - in addition to the pfeffernusse, they have flat cookies, some covered with choc, some with white frosting, with the same spicy cakelike interior. Cant remember what these are called.
