    Fantastic! Really loved these. I had a hard time spreading my mixture onto the oblaten, so they didn't turn out super beautiful, but the taste was heavenly. I used the cinnamon, ginger, and cloves substitution, with the addition of a pinch of nutmeg, cardamom, and coriander to more closely mimic the lebkuchen spice. Yum!
