Just discovered that my standard Lebkuchen ("Black Forest Honey Cakes") recipe has no shortening or oil in it. This is from the Betty Crocker cookbook. Copyright page is missing, but I think it's 1950.

Mix honey and molasses. Add egg, lemon peel and juice. Sift & stir in flour and spices. Chill 2 hours. Mold into flattened balls. Decorate with blanched almonds and citron. Bake on GREASED sheet at 400 degrees, 10-12 minutes.
