Lebkuchen

 

A German gingerbread, beautifully spiced with cinnamon and ginger


Ingredients

160 g honey

100 g unsalted butter

50 g ground almonds

250 g plain flour

1/2 tsp baking powder

3/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda

1 tsp ground ginger

2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

2 tsp cocoa powder

1/4 tsp salt


To decorate

75 g icing sugar

1 small egg white

1-2 tbsp lemon juice or water

100 g dark chocolate, melted


Method

1. Melt the honey and butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir occasionally until combined, then remove and set aside to cool for 15 minutes. 


2. Place the ground almond in a large bowl and sieve over the remaining ingredients. Pour over the cooled honey mixture and mix until a dough forms. Preheat the oven to 140°C (fan). 


3. Roll the dough between two sheets of cling film to a thickness of 2 cm. Using a small heart-shaped cookie cutter (roughly 4 cm), cut out the shapes and place them onto a prepared baking tray. Roll the leftover dough into equal balls, place on a lined baking tray, and press down slightly to a thickness of approximately 2 cm. 


4. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Remove from the oven and leave to cool for 5 minutes before transferring onto a wire rack to cool completely. 


5. Meanwhile, mix the icing sugar, egg white, and lemon juice (or water) together to make a thin, runny icing. Once cooled, place a baking sheet under the wire rack and brush each lebkuchen with the icing using a pastry brush. Leave for 15 minutes to set, then drizzle the cookies with chocolate in a zig-zag motion. If you want, dip the cookies into chocolate to cover the base. 



ENJOY!
