My grandmother used to make a thin rolled-bark holiday cookie that she flavored with anise and called pfeffernuss. It also called for lard (I hope to use palm kernel oil instead!). I know what pfeffernuss is and it isn't this! Can anyone name this traditional cookie? I'd love to surprise my mother with it for Christmas! Thank you so much for your help.
