There's nothing quite as lovely as the smell of gingerbread filling your kitchen. These simple biscuits don't only taste amazing, but are also really easy to make, making them a great recipe for the little ones in the family too.
These gingerbread biscuits, or lebkuchen, are typical Christmas treats in Germany. Remember the story of Hansel and Gretel, the wicked witch and that tempting sweet-and-spicy gingerbread house? The German authors of that fairy tale, brothers Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, started the fashion for gingerbread shapes decorated with icing in the early 1800s.
