    Thank you so much - I love Lebkuchen and have been thinking how much I missed making them over Christmas. I can't wait to taste these wonderful, spicy cookies again. Great post! =)

    Are you sure about the one week?? Do you think such a delicious recipe with 4 cups of honey and such spices with brown sugar and butter will resist for one week?? I think I will not resist overnight.Great one Michelle.

    Well, there's no way these aren't a 5 - I'd give them a 10 if I could! What a great picture, too...they look sooooooooooo good!! Could you ship me out a dozen or so, overnight express???
