Hey I've had pfeffernusse before, just didn't know it was called that!
I pulled up the ingredients on AllRecipies.com. Based on the ingredients, Pfeffernusse and Krupnik should actually match up quite nicely. I'd suggest our Polish Krupnik as it has a smooth vanilla flavor that I think would go very well with Pfeffernusse.
