Lebkuchen Christmas Biscuits
December 16, 2012
Lebkuchen are spicy German biscuits that are associated with Christmas and are decorated with icing. They are a bit like gingerbread, but with a deeper, spiced flavour.
They make excellent gifts for teachers and friends. Put them in a pretty, little gift box with some ribbon tied around it, for a special little touch.
This dough is perfect for freezing, so make double and freeze half, wrapped in cling film or baking paper.

Kids can do all of this, but they have to be careful with taking it in and out of the oven.
