The general German term for ginger biscuits, they are generally less-definitely gingery, and more variedly-spiced than British varieties - containing cinnamon, cloves and often aniseed, cardamom and nutmeg as well.

The name comes from 'Pfefferlander' - the countries of the Far East associated with pepper and spice. See 'Ginger biscuits'
