    Does anyone have a recipe for lepp cookies? I searched but couldn't find anything. I think you slice and bake them and they have molasses and dried fruits and nuts in them.

    I've never heard of these, let me ask around to a few people.

    The lepp cookies I know about are an amish molasses cookie made with umm baking amonia. When I googled the lepp cookies were dropped no molaasses but they usued brown sugar....

    Perhaps are you refering to lebkuchen? The old country corner conversation thread should be able to help you. I've eaten lots of it but never made it myself. Goes back hundredds of years in Germany.
    Good luck

    I found a recipe for Lepp cookies (even a small batch) and tried them last year.  They were so good but no one at my house at them except me.  Not sure if I will be making them this year.


    Thanks for the offer!  I appreciate it.

    Email me and let me know if you still need the recipe.  I have one for the Lepp cookies you form into a block and slice.

     Lep Cookies:

    2 eggs

    1 c. brown sugar
    1 pint molasses
    1 t. ground cloves
    1 t. ground anise
    1 t. aniseed
    1 c. sour cream
    1/2 lb. blanched slivered almonds
    1 t. soda
    1 c. chopped citron peel
    1 c. chopped mixed peel
    7 c. flour

    Topping: Egg white with a bit of water
    Whole or split almonds

    Mix all except flour together and heat to lukewarm on the stove in heavy pot or double boiler. Stir in flour when
    warm (not hot). Put mixture in a cool place for a day or two. The dough will then be stiff enough to roll. Divide into 4 sections and wrap each well and chill  until they
    are stiff. When ready to bake them, Slice rolls 1/4 inch
    thick and bake on greased cookie sheet for about 10
    minutes. They will be crisp at first and become chewy
    later. These keep fresh tasting a very long time. They
    freeze well.
