Lebkuchen stems from the German word 'Kuchen', meaning cake, and it is a traditional treat made in Germany during Christmas. It is a spiced biscuit, similar to gingerbread, and has a cake-like texture.
In this recipe I took the traditional flavours of Lebkuchen, and adapted it into a chewy meringue biscuit, a bit like a macaroon. Seeing how this is not the classic form, I see no problem with tradition, and eating it at times other than Christmas. Based on the brands I used, each biscuit is about 135 calories each.
