      Title: Lebkuchen
 Categories: Cookies, German
      Yield: 72 Servings
 
    1/2 c  Honey
    1/2 c  Molasses
    3/4 c  Sugar, brown
      1    Egg
      1 tb Lemon juice
      1 ts Lemon rind; grated
  2 3/4 c  Flour; sifted
    1/2 ts Baking soda
      1 ts Cinnamon, ground
      1 ts Cloves, ground
      1 ts Allspice, ground
      1 ts Nutmeg, ground
    1/3 c  Citron; chopped
    1/3 c  Nuts; chopped

MMMMM-----------------------GLAZING ICING----------------------------
      1 c  Sugar
    1/2 c  ;Water
    1/4 c  Sugar, confectioners
 
  Mix the honey and molasses; bring to a boil.  Remove from the heat
  and cool thoroughly.  Stir in the brown sugar, egg, lemon juice, and
  lemon rind. Sift together the flour, baking soda, and spices. Stir
  into the honey-molasses mixture.  Mix in the citron and nuts. Chill
  the dough overnight.  Roll a small amount at a time, keeping the rest
  chilled. Roll out to 1/4 inch thickness and cut into oblongs 1 1/2 x
  2 1/2 inches. Place about 1 inch apart on a greased baking sheet.
  Bake in a 400 F (moderate/ hot) oven for 10 to 12 minutes until, when
  touched lightly, no imprint remains. While the cookies bake, make the
  Glazing Icing. Boil together the sugar and water until the first
  indication of a thread appears (230F). Remove from the heat.  Stir in
  the confectioners' sugar. Brush the hot icing thinly over the
  cookies. (When the icing gets sugary, reheat slightly, adding a
  little water until clear again.)
