This is the most authentic recipe I have found for lebkuchen. I added grated lemon and orange peel to the dough. For the icing I added orange peel and more juice to make a thin glaze.
Another commenter suggested "dropping" these on parchment paper, which I did. Made a very authentic cookie. Roll into golf-ball size for the most attractive cookie.
Do not overbake. At 325 F, check at 15 mins for golf-ball sized dough balls.
After you cool the honey sugar mix, the most effective way to mix is with your hands. It's a difficult and messy step, but I believe it is what makes these so authentic.
What's up with the red hots?!? Forget about it!
