Two cookies for the price of one! Cookies five and six come from Germany and made by Lucie.

Haselnuss Makronen and Lebkuchen



Haselnuss Makronen - Hazelnut Macroons

Another cookie that many German people remember and enjoy at Christmas!

Lebkuchen

The different regions of Germany have different recipes for this traditional Christmas cookie. Much like gingerbread, it is either soft textured, like Lucie's pictured. There is a more hard/brittle version of the cookie that is decorated with icing with words written out. I saw that kind at the German Christmas Market in Birmingham, England a few years ago.
