Here is more recipes of Lebkuchen: from the Visions of Sugarplums Heat honey until thin and slightly darkened in color. Stir in sugar until dissolved. Cool and beat in eggs, nuts, fruit and spices. stir in coffee for cookies with dark richer flavor or milk if you prefer milder golden-color cookies. sift flour with baking powder and stir gradually into mixture. Blend thoroughly. (dough can be baked now or you can allow it to age by place for 1 day to 1 week.) Spread dough about ½ inch thick on a lightly buttered and floured baking sheet. Bake in preheated 400 oven for 12 to 15 min., or until a deep golden brown. If you are using the glaze or stickers, add immediately, but cool cookies before covering with icing. Cut into rectangles when cool. Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
