Bahlsen – Lebkuchen Mischung Biscuits (Waitrose)

There is a correlation between Christmas and Germany. City centres have German markets at Christmas, and supermarkets fill themselves with German treats the second the calendar hits December! Thankfully supermarkets do, because it means Lebkuchen are available in the shops.
Lebkuchen (literally “love-cookies”) are a traditional spicy German biscuit.
These particular ones are both cinnamon and ginger flavoured, and are soft and spongy. They are very pretty biscuits, either decorated with icing, dark chocolate, or coloured sugar.
The ones that are coated in icing melt in the mouth, the coloured sugar adds texture, and the spices complement the dark chocolate ones so well… I honestly can’t choose a favourite.
