    german gingerbread biscuits

    Thu Dec 08, 2005 9:34 am Groupie
    Does anyone have a recipe for these? The ones I mean are the ones that come coated in a very thin layer of icing or covered in chocolate and are normally in Christmas boxes.

    Out of interest, is this the same gingerbread that gets made into big shapes (I remember a Christmas tree and a rocking horse) and iced in pretty colours?

    i went to the christmas market in town a few days ago and they had stollen and gingerbread and mulled wine and all sorts of nice things yummy.gif but I know I can't afford them icon_sad.gif

    Hels are you talking about the chewy kind????
    If so..that is Leb kuchen (I hope I spelled that right)
    My grandmother was German and she made that and they were iced. I will check Zaar to see if there are any recipes

    They're certainly chewier than English ginger biscuits icon_smile.gif More like an american-style chocolate chip cookie, but cooked through

    Yes we are talking about the same ones...could not find it on Zaar yet...hopefully Thorsten will see this post because it could be my spelling

    ooh, those look good. i take it that the oblaten stuff is rice paper, or that rice paper is a perfectly respectable substitution?

    I might get baking next week icon_biggrin.gif Or I might wait until the holidays and take over my mum's kitchen which is bigger and has more baking trays!

    Yes Hels..I would use rice paper, think its the same..I know Tesco, Asda etc all sell that

    Yes, rice paper would be a good sub.

    The spices in Lebkuchen are essential. In Germany you can buy "Lebkuchen Sopice". If you choose a recipe take one which contains: cinnamon, cardamon, nutmeg, anise, cloves. These spices are my favorites in Lebkuchen.

    cool, I have all of those spices in my cupboard icon_biggrin.gif

    This is a very good version:

    Elisenlebkuchen (German Christmas Cookies) Recipe recipe #77664

    These are not the kind you find in shapes in the bags, but rather the bigger round ones sold stacked on their sides in small boxes with clear plastic wrap around them. However, lebkuchen all kind of tastes very similar.
