Chocolate Lebküchen

December 12, 1992 (an ancient Hartfield family recipe, from Woman's Day Magazine, Dec. 1961) Combine sugar, honey, and water in large saucepan. Bring to boil. Remove from heat, cool until test chocolate chips do not melt when stirred in to bottom. When cool, stir in chocolate, almonds, candied fruit, eggs, and orange juice. [*] Sift in flour, spices, baking soda, baking powder, and BLEND THOROUGHLY. Store dough in tightly-closed container at room temperature for 3 days to ripen. Spread into greased and floured 15"x10"x1" pan. Bake in moderate oven (325F) 35 to 40 minutes. Cool. Frost and decorate. Makes about 50.
(* this is easiest if you mix the eggs and orange juice together, add the mixture to the honey, and then add the rest of the items as directed above.)


To each 1 C sifted confectioner's sugar (10X), add 1 to 2 T lemon or orange juice, stirring until of the right spreading consistency.
