German Christmas: Classic Stollen and Lebkuchen

  • Classic Stollen
  • Lebkuchen

My heritage is Austrian, so my family made Christmas desserts in the German tradition.  Here are two recipes that can be store-bought, but so much better in their homemade versions. Stollen is a sweet yeast bread flavored with rum, nuts, and almonds, and lebkuchen are the original gingerbread cookie. Make room on your holiday menus for these treats!

Rick will teach you:

  • How to make a homemade German spice mix for lebkuchen and other desserts
  • The classic sweet yeast dough for stollen
  • The special shaping technique for stollen
  • Grandma Perry’s authentic decoration for lebkuchen
