Quick and easy lebkuchen


Four dozen down, 12 more to go. Not that these lightly spiced lebkuchen are the only cookies I’m baking for the holidays, but they became an instant favorite from the first bite. I found the recipe on Belle in Belfast and immediately got to work as all of the ingredients were on hand. Yes, they’re that easy. And also SO VERY GOOD, that I made another couple dozen just now. Part of the recipe uses metric measurements so for those living stateside, here are the equivalent in cups:

250 grams flour = 2 cups
75 grams ground almonds = 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons
75 grams butter = 2.5 ounces
200 grams honey = 2/3 cup

Happy baking!

      It’s a no-brainer if you want/need some other type of cookie to round out the gingerbread, thumbprint, sugar, etc. Measure, mix (no beating involved), shape, bake, and decorate!
