10 thoughts on “Lebkuchen

  1. These are the BEST biscuits! I quickly became addicted to them when living in Germany, sending them back to my father who instantly loved them as much. Since discovering after his passing that both his parents were German, I wonder now if he had any childhood memories of these…

    1. That’s a lovely memory to have of lebkuchen. I first learnt about them when a friend moved to Germany for several years. And I thought they were amazing as art as well as to eat !

  2. These absolutely are works of art, too pretty to eat, as you say! Love how you photographed them. You have an eye for food photography, which isn’t, in my experience, an easy thing to come by 🙂

      1. Sounds easy, but I have a devil of a time with composition and light! I just don’t “see” it in these instances, which frustrates the heck out of me 😜 😀

      2. Light is almost always a problem with food. You often can’t do anything about it either. And sometimes it’s so messy, not all perfect like in the magazines. I’ve found that with plate compositions, you want to take a fraction of the plate – like say a quarter corner or with the top & bottom lopped off so that it looks like a frame.
