Andre's Basler Leckerli

  • Chock full of almonds, honey, spices & orange and lemon peels, Basler leckerli (translation: treats from Basel, Switzerland) are like a distant Swiss cousin to lebkuchen, so it's no wonder that we're quite obsessed with these addictive, deliciously chewy cookies.

    We were delighted to discover that Andre's Confiserie Suisse (of Kansas City, MO) has been making Swiss leckerli cookies from a centuries-old recipe from Basel ever since the current proprietor's grandfather immigrated to the U.S. in 1955. Andre's leckerli is truly authentic, and as good as the best we've had in our extensive travels throughout Switzerland.

    If you're a fan of Läckerli Huus in Switzerland, you will surely enjoy these Basler läckerli.

    Baked with only the highest quality ingredients (they even candy their own peels!) and without preservatives.

    Available in a 12oz box (with 24 pieces). 

    Storage Notes from Andre's: The nature of the product is dependent on the weather so in the dry, winter months, the cookies are inevitably harder. Try this tip: store the leckerli in a jar with a slice of apple overnight. The leckerli will reabsorb moisture and become softer!

Once was enough

The pieces were dry yet clung together as a block. So it was a bit messy eating them.

Hi Elke, sorry to hear that. The Basler leckerli can occasionally stick together depending on the relative humidty of the environment. I'm not sure if that is what caused the issue you saw, but we'll follow up separately to find out more and make it right.

Love this Lebkuchen

This lebkuchen is the closest any lebkuchen has come to the lebkuchen I ate during my childhood from Ericann in Chicago. Sandy, please, please add German Christmas cookies and stollen to your repertoire.

Shocking Discovery

Having sent my brother some Leckerlee lebkuchen for Christmas, I decided to also send him a box of Andre’s Basler Leckerli in January. Leckerlee was having a sale so I couldn’t resist. My brother was raving about the cookie so much, I had to try one. As it turns out, my husband keeps a stash. I was stunned to realize what an incredible cookie had been hiding out in my kitchen! They are a soft, chewy explosion of citrus, almonds and spices! I can’t believe they’ve been here all along and I’ve never sampled them. I think they might be the best store-bought cookies I’ve ever had.

These are very yummy

So tasty!

My only problem with your Lebkuchen is that they disappear much too fast even though I’m the only one eating them.
