Christmas Calendar 2019 Day 17 - Pepper nut with licorice

I continue to bake for the Christmas coffee taking place later this week, this time is one of the Danish Christmas classic in form of "pepper nuts". "Pepper nuts" is a spiced small round cookie, where there is an extra addition of licorice, which is another typical Danish classic.

I have this recipe in a small leaflet, which I got together with the weekly magazine "Søndag".
