German Spice Cookies (Pfeffernusse)
You can skip the glaze and decorations and finish the cookies with confectioners' sugar instead. Place 1 1/4 cups confectioners' sugar in a brown paper bag. After baking, transfer sheets to a wire rack to cool slightly, about 10 minutes. Working in batches, place cookies in paper bag; shake until well coated. Let cool completely on wire rack.
