Holiday Lebkuchen (German Spice Cookies)

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2012
I made a bunch of these to be included with other various cookies as xmas gifts. I love cookies with lots of cloves/cardamom/nutmeg. Very seasonal flavors and so this seemed like a great one. I'm a novice baker at best though and maybe some of my issues are from that but I found these to be a serious undertaking to make. There are so many elements... if you are planning on making these just be ready to sweat. I've run 10k marathons where I didn't work this hard! First, just buy pre-skinned almonds. Second, buy pre-pitted/chopped dates. Third be prepared to make 3 to 4 times as much icing because these cookies were really not very sweet at all, they are a little dense. The end result is ok, they go pretty well with coffee. I will probably not make these again though.
