Last week this space spoke of sweet Sfardi almond cigars, as a treat appropriate for the High Holidays. Now the Ashkenazim are demanding equal space. The problem is, many people really don’t like plain old boring honey cake.
So (don’t) give them cake! Give them Lebkuchen, which are a chewy cookie bar with a glaze. Much more interesting and fun to eat. Still brings that awesome honey flavor to the table for a sweet new year! This recipe looks a keeper.
