We spent this cold rainy afternoon with our friends making lebkuchen and decorating them with seeds, nuts, and dried fruit.  These are big, strong, and filling cookies, made with whole wheat pastry flour, honey and molasses and lots of spices.  The recipe is on the right side of the page.  Keep them in a tin with a tight cover, and they just get even better over time. If you like them sweeter, decorate them with frosting and sprinkles; but for a real old-country taste, we like seeds and nuts and dried fruit.  Each one is like a meal, especially if you nibble it slowly in front of a fire!


  1. Wow! I've never heard of these cookies before - they sound very festive and very filling! What a lovely blog you have here! A fan!
