    *Lebkuchen is a honey-sweetened, spiced German cake, molded cookie or bar cookie that has become part of Germany’s Christmas traditions. Since “The Nutcracker” originated in Germany, it’s very appropriate to this collection.

    Traditional spices include allspice, aniseed, cardamom, cloves, coriander and ginger. Nuts (almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts) and candied fruit are also included.

    †Russian tea cakes are simple cookies, often called butterball cookies in the U.S. The flour, water, butter and sugar are mixed with ground nuts and formed into balls. After baking, the cookies are rolled in powdered sugar.
