When I was growing up it wasn't really Christmas until Mom brought home Archway's Pfeffernuesse cookies. Once I got married I decided to try to make my own. They turned out quite well although they taste nothing like Archway's. Now that Archway no longer makes them I have started baking my own again. I've gotten rave reviews on them. These cookies have a denser texture than Archway's but they are very rich tasting.
