German Lebkuchen with Brooklyn Brewery Black Chocolate Stout Glaze

0 comments

In the spirit of Christmas, baking and beer we tweaked and combined a few recipes to come up with these German lebkuchen cookies with a chocolate stout glaze. In case you aren’t familiar with lebkuchen, they are sometimes referred to as “honey cookies” but we think they taste very similar to gingerbread. We used Brooklyn Brewery Black Chocolate Stout but the recipe would work with any stronger sweet stout you have on hand. Oh, and you only need about 4 oz. of beer for the glaze so you still have a nice sized glass to enjoy with your warm, fresh out of the oven cookies.

Oatmeal Stout Banana Pancakes

Saint Patrick’s Day is right around the corner (it’s tomorrow for those who may not know). With that in mind we here at BLC were thinking how best to celebrate the festivities. During our recent interview with The Beer Amigos (Episode 12 is the one with our interview as well as more from the recent Spring Craft Beer Fest) we talked a bit about writing recipes and developing pairings for beer and food. This crept into our minds while running a couple errands and we decided to celebrate by making a “Guinness Stew”. We changed around the ingredients and recipe to make it our own. Instead of the traditional Irish dry stout, we decided to go with local favorite and use Blind Bat Brewery’s Long Island Potato Stout. After all, what says St. Patrick’s Day more than beer and potatoes?
