Lebkuchen are German Christmas cookies that are pillow-y soft and full of all those special holiday flavors – imagine gingerbread but amped up with a hint of spice and chewiness. Be sure not to skimp on the orange peel! The citrus makes for an extra layer of deliciousness and it’s a great way to use up as much of your oranges as possible. If you have leftover fresh ginger, you can use it to make hot tea or add to stir frys and smoothies.
Makes about 18 cookies
