    This was my grandmother's recipe. I don't know whether the Depression contributed to the simple ingredients, but I've learned that this recipe is unusual because it doesn't include raisins. I double the recipe and make 4 or 8 loaves. I grew up pronouncing it "stalin" (like the Russian dictator) and was well into adulthood before I heard it pronounced "shtohlin." It will always be "stalin" to me!

    The cookies are baked on a thin, edible wafer called oblaten. Oblaten are crisp, white wheat wafers that are available in specialty food shops. If you do not have a specialty food shop that handles oblaten, check with a local religious supply house. Wafers that are used for communion come in various sizes, including 2 3/4 and 3-inch diameters, and can be used for lebkuchen.

    Recipe #88038

    My grandmother used to tell me about these cookies all the time, when she gave the recipe to me, I knew I needed to save it here. The yield depends on cookie cutter sizes. I got about 24 cookies using small trees and stars as cutters. Time accounts for 3 batches in the oven.

    Recipe #270398

    This German cookie recipe has become a Christmas tradition in our family, but is yummy year round. The combination of orange and chocolate is wonderful!

    Recipe #149860

    People raved about these elegant and easy cookies I made as gifts during the 2006 holiday season. I originally found the recipe in Brigitte, a German fashion magazine, in their November 2005 edition.

    Recipe #204608

    Summer Time is Zwetschgenkuchen time for me. This traditional German Plum Cake will be made with Damson Plums on a yeast dough. After your first mouthful of this juicy cake you will be addicted to the wonderful flavors of plums, cinnamon, yeast dough and whipped cream. I can't wait to get the first plums (Zwetschgen) every year to make one of my favorite fruit cakes.

    Recipe #131910

    A very typical cookie in Germany for Christmas.

    Recipe #301

    Back in the 60's, we had a newly emigrated neighbor from Germany, who taught my DH how to make yeast bread--with THIS recipe. It has graced our Christmas morning table every year since--and 2 loaves hardly last for the next day. He usually makes them the week before and wraps in plastic wrap, puts in a plastic garbage bag, and freezes until Christmas Eve. Goes well with your favorite strata.

    Recipe #185307

    These German cookies are sweet and nicely spiced with a satisfying crunch. We often make these during Christmas. Since I am not partial to walnuts I always omit them.

    Recipe #170590

    This is an adopted recipe. I have not made it yet and may update if I think it is necessary.

    Recipe #6436

    I adopted this recipe, and some other German recipes, in honor of my old neighbor who was a wonderful cook!

    This is from Gail's grandmother Zick, who came from Germany when she was 14. She was born in the 1880's. It has become one of our family traditions, and frequently a favorite Christmas present.

    Kind of a cookie or is it cake, the size of an open finger spread hand, best if glazed in black and white (chocolate and vanilla). A treat we got as children when we were very very good.

    Recipe #97032

    This recipe has been handed down from my great grandmother in Germany. We've had these every Christmas since I can remember and I now make them every year with my kids. They are so delicious.
