Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the egg, brown sugar, honey and molasses until smooth. Combine the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, allspice and baking soda; blend into the molasses mixture. Stir in the almonds and candied citron. Working with 1/4 of the dough at one time, roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to 1/4 inch in thickness. Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters. Place the cookies at least 1 inch apart onto prepared cookie sheets.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until set. Cool on wire racks and store at room temperature in an airtight container.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

This recipe is very similar to Betty Crocker's only it is best to bring honey and molassis to a boil (stir continuously) and then let it cool to room temp. first otherwise, your molassis and honey don't blend properly making for a rock hard cookie (I know, I tried the recipe!!!) My mom and I made Betty Crocker's and it came out fine...... so remeber boil honey and molassis first!!!

They had too much of a molasses flavor and not the typical lebkuchen flavor. I also baked them at 350 for 12 minutes - definitely not long enough.
