Lebkuchen (German honey-spice cookie)

2/3 cup honey
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 egg (or egg equivalent)
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon lemon rind
2 2/3 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon each: ginger, cinnamon, allspice, anise, mace, cloves, cardamom
1/2 cup chopped citron
1/2 cup chopped almonds

Glaze:
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup powdered confectioner's sugar
1/2 cup water
whole blanched almonds or candied cherries (for decoration)

Heat honey to boiling, cool. Add brown sugar, egg, lemon juice
and rind, flour, soda, and spices. Mix well. Stir in citron and
almonds. Chill several hours. Roll to at 1/4 inch thick and cut
in diamonds or circles. Put 1/2 almond or 1/2 cherry on each.
Place on a lightly oiled a cookie sheet and bake at 400 degrees
for 10-12 minutes. For a softer cookie, try at 9 minutes. While
cookies are baking, bring the sugar and water to boiling in a small
saucepan. Boil 3 minutes; stir in confectioner's sugar. Brush
hot cookies with hot glaze, cool on wire racks. Store in a tightly
covered container to mellow. These cookies get better with age.
Makes at 3 dozen cookies.
