Polish Christmas Cookies

My mother in law has a polish name for these but my husband and brothers always just called them "Polish Christmas Cookies". They are very easy to make and have a nice anise flavor to them.

Old German-Polish Recipe for Lebkuchen (Christmas Cookies)

This is a family recipe that I received from my mother-in-law. They were German-Polish farmers in the early 1900s on the eastern Germany-Poland border. This is a chewy, honey-based Christmas cookie. Melt dark chocolate and apply a thin coat to the cookie (as an extra treat)!
