Spiced Christmas Biscuits from Earsham Street

Earsham Street Cafe

The Earsham Street Cafe’s version of pebernødder (or peppernuts), a traditional Danish spiced Christmas biscuit. Made with our organic YQ wheat flour and plenty of festive spices, these are very much a one off Christmas batch (until next year!).

The tradition of eating small spiced biscuits is common all across Northern Europe, though not in the UK - which is a great pity because they’re absolutely delicious. It’s unclear where the recipe originated, but whether ‘pepernoten’ (Netherlands), ‘pfeffernuss’ (Germany) or peppernuts (USA), these crunchy little biscuits are closely associated with Christmas and are often the treat left for St Nicholas.

Our friends Gemma and Mike at the Earsham Street Cafe in Bungay have come up with a special peppernut recipe just for us, made with flour milled from organic YQ wheat grown in Suffolk. A richly spiced sweet treat, they’re too good to leave out for Father Christmas!

Biscuits keep best in an air-tight container stored in a cool place. Correctly stored these pebernødder should keep well for 4 weeks.
