      Actually I always use a German recipe that I got when I was living there to make Lebkuchen...but I lost it so this was the nearest I found and it worked really well! Lebkuchen must be one of our family favourites for the run-up to Christmas - it just tastes soooooo nice! I have to admit that I omitted the candied peel and I didn't let the dough ripen but it still tasted great! Thanks!
