About this recipe: This is an old recipe for delightful German biscuits that are generally served around Christmas time. They call for treacle, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, honey and brown sugar.
Do not be put off by the long list of ingredients - it takes seconds to meaure them out. I made these and wrapped them nicely in clear cellowrap then placed into baskets for christmas presents. Everyone loved them and I have ended up making many more! Don't make half the recipe - 72 may ound a lot but believe me they'll get eaten! - 03 Jan 2010
Lovely. Heavy on the cloves, though, which I don't mind but some of the others who tried it found too overpowering, so I'm going to make it again with half the cloves but adding some crystallised ginger. Maybe cover half of them in chocolate instead of icing. - 14 Dec 2012
I LOVE lebkuchen so went Googling for a recipe, this one is just delicious. My wife found it too heavy on the cloves, but to me it worked perfectly. Christmassy! - 01 Dec 2012
