When I got to Laura’s house there were three packages of Lebkuchen by the guest bed. My daughter knows me well. These are from Germany.
Unfortunately, Oscar the dog got one package and ate some (no ill effects even though he got a chocolate covered one)
but he didn’t get my favorite kind.
I just opened it tonight. One a day for six days and then will have to wait until next Christmas
Lots of Lebkuchen links below

What a great gift. Sorry the dog couldn’t contain himself! But we all know once you’ve enjoyed them, there’s no controlling yourself!
Our German exchange student introduced them to us and sent them for years. Now we settle for something similar from Aldi’s!
Enjoy your week!
Mmmmm ……do they look good! My treat at Christmas is Stollen…..I think it also has a German origin.
Trader Joe’s is very good – sells out early! My favorite is Mediterra Stollen from the East End Coop….
and their own shops. The treats of Xmas!!!!XOXO
Awwww… what a lovely treat. Not the cookie but the thought behind it!
Looks delicious! What a thoughtful gift.
What a thoughtful treat from Laura. It’s gestures like this which show such love.
Exactly right ❤️
I do love ginger snaps so I would probably love lebkuchen.
I love all the German ginger treats. You have made my mouth water.
A friend in my knitting group is from Germany. She makes the best baked goodies. I don’t like sweets but her baked items never are. YUM… on these.
You’ll have to see if she bakes Lebkuchen. ❤️
Yum! They sell these at World Market year-round, if you happen to have one of those stores by you. But sometimes the “scarcity” of the item makes it that much more sweet.
Uh oh, I thought I could only get them at Christmas time.
