      Pretty similar to German Lebkuchen, although the consistency is a little different. For a German far from home with no easy access to the real thing, this recipe is just what's needed for Christmas.

      I have made this numerous times, double and triple the recipe and it's always a hit! My German friends said it's quite authentic,too. I do make more glaze than the recipe calls for and add some of the ground almonds to glaze as well for decoration. Sometimes, I also add lemon extract when I don't have a real lemon in the house and it works perfectly. A real winner and so delicious!
