This Lebkuchen recipe is such an easy German Christmas recipe to make. It's made in one bowl, baked, decorated, and then cut. But the results ... the house smells like I'm back in Germany. Memories ... working in the kitchen together with Mutti, making all those delicious Christmas German recipes.
I love Christmas ... and the wonderful memories of time spent together with Mutti and my sisters.
For the traditional Lebkuchen spice, you'll need to go to a German deli or order it online.
If not, can use "pumpkin pie" or "gingerbread" spice.
There are slight differences, but they are similar enough and the final result will still be delicious.
If you don't have access to Lebkuchen spice, you can make your own by mixing together the following ground spices and adding this to the recipe.
This quantity is equal to one package of Lebkuchen Spice Mixture.
