Spiced Honey Cookies
(Lebkuchen)
What You Need:
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped candied orange peel
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped candied lemon peel
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 cup honey
  • ½ cup milk
  • Almond Glaze (see Spice Cookies)
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2¼ cups plus 2 tablespoons flour
  • ½ teaspoon double-acting baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup shelled almonds, ground in an electric blender or with a nut grinder or a mortar and pestle

  • How To Cook:
    1. Lightly coat the bottom and sides of an 11-by-17-inch jelly-roll pan with the soft butter. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of flour evenly over the butter and tip the pan from side to side to coat the surface evenly. Then invert the pan, and rap it sharply on a table to remove any excess flour. Set aside.

    2. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Sift the 2¼ cups flour, baking powder, cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg into a large bowl, and stir in the almonds, orange peel and lemon peel. With a whisk or a rotary or electric beater, beat the eggs and sugar together until the mixture is thick enough to fall back on itself in a slowly dissolving ribbon when the beater is lifted from the bowl. Beat in the honey, then the milk, and finally, a little at a time, the flour mixture.

    3. When the batter is smooth, spread it out evenly in the jelly-roll pan with a rubber spatula. Bake in the middle of the oven for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the cake is firm to the touch.

    4. With a knife or metal spatula, loosen the sides of the cake from the pan and turn it out on a cake rack. While it is still warm, brush the top with a thin coating of the glaze, let it set for a minute or so, then cut the cake into cookies 2½ inches long and 1½ inches wide.

    Lebkuchen can be stored for 6 to 8 weeks in tightly sealed jars or tins.
