Taking the leap, trusting the fall.
~ Dani Shapiro
These babies came to be because I wanted to bake with honey, and because my kitchen felt like being doused in Christmas perfume.
I used this recipe as a guide. While I doubt this is “authentic” lebkuchen, it does yield a bounty of beautiful-smelling bars which keep for a good length of time, becoming softer and lovelier each day.
Authentic or not, they look really tasty.
I’ve never heard of lebkuchen before. It looks downright tasty! :)
I hadn’t heard of it before either, found it when I searched for honey recipes. Love how the world of food is so vast… :-)
They look sooo yum! I love it when things taste even better as they age!
Oh, I love Lebkuchen! Reminds me so much of when I lived in Germany! This looks marvelous.
I’d love to taste “real” lebkuchen one day!
