Question by : Are Lebkuchen German spice cookies good to eat?
I’m suppose to find German cookies to bake, for my German class, and i was wondering if these tasted good.

Best answer:

Answer by The Unknown Chef
I make thumb print types and filled the indentation with apricot jam, some I even dip some in chocolate to coat, they turn soft and cakey that way, for a class project there a good idea, if you can find candied or preserved ginger and add this to the dough it is a nice kick.
