Always great quality
This is my third year purchasing from Leckerlee, and the quality is amazing. They always arrive on time, smelling wonderful, and are still fresh and oh so flavorful when I get the person I gave them to, to share with me :) I will continue to buy every winter!!

Lebkuchen as my memory trigger
"These are delicious, just exactly what I remembered in taste, not too sweet and nicely spiced. To me they were both too bit and too soft to be 5-star perfect, the ones I had as a child were thinner and chewier. But I liked these a lot."
Mario S. Verified Reviewer 2013-12-20
Delicious Lebkuchen!
I had read about these a while ago and was very curious to try them. Having had the original German ones didn۪t help because your expectations get really high when you read all the great reviews and you want to believe they will be as good as the real ones۝. But guess what_ they ARE as good as the German ones! They are amazing!

Delicious!
I have recently become obsessed with lebkuchen. Last year I tried to make my own and it was not a success. This year I heard about Leckerlee on a food blog and decided to give it a try. I ordered some for myself and for a friend who used to live in Germany, and we both love it. Also, I live in Japan and the shipment went out right away and arrived quickly, so the lebkuchen was plenty fresh. Really appreciated the quick shipment.

Spend Christmas in Germany
When I was a child, my parents' friends in Germany sent us a big box of lebkuchen every December. It was a wonderful treat. Leckerlee's Lebkuchen is just as good--actually, even better--than the lebkuchen from my childhood. Moist, sweet, and delicious--one tin is never enough, so order several while they are in season. Yum!!

As Good As Germany
"Actually I would say better than when we lived in Germany. but do not want to upset anyone. We always looked forward to the holidays when we were there and the Lebkuchen was a big part. I usually bought a big decorative tin full to send home to family. Anyway have been in the U.S.25 years now and this is the first time we have had lebkuchen, saw an article about your place and decided to try. Bought a few 3 pack boxes for gifts for my children, but my husband and I ate them all! Do not think I have time to order more before Christmas, but can be sure I will order a LOT more next year. Delicious!! thank you"

Lebkuchen

A little too peppery
Having my first taste of Lebkuchen in Nurnberg, I was hoping to find just the right thing from your bakery. The came really close and I love all the spice flavors but there is a strong black pepper aftertaste that I didn't find pleasant. Overall, though they seemed pretty close to the real thing.

My first taste of lebkuchen
I never want another cookie again. I was hoping to have the tin last through the holidays, but I ate most of them myself (not ashamed). The husband did get about 1 1/2 cookies. They are soft and full of flavor. I think I am going to order more before Christmas!

Rather delicious Lebkuchen
I love your tins and your creation of Lebkuchen very much. They are certainly much better than almost all German Lebkuchen I know except, in my view, the Elisen Lebkuchen from Schmidt. But I love having a repertoire each year with those from Schmidt and yours mixed together! All the best for your business!

Best Holiday Cookies Ever!
I was thrilled when I got a present of Leckerlee lebkuchen last year. I had been looking for the real lebkuchen for years after a friend had given me some hand made lebkuchen many years ago. The store bought lebkuchen didn't come near. Than I got a can of Leckerlee. Handmade, with a true German recipe, these are fantastic.Chewy and moist, the right complex spices and a layer of chocolate or just glaze if your prefer. I bought several cans (and the cans are great for using after the cookies are gone. These are the real deal!! Thanks, Leckerlee!!

I'm sooo excited to have found Leckerlee Bakery! I have family that sends Lebkucken over from Germany every year and this is the first US made cookie I have found that even compares. Leckerlee cookies are wonderful and so fresh, they taste completely home made. And the tins they come packaged in are beautiful. I think I've found a new holiday tradition collecting a Leckerlee tin and enjoying their cookies every year! Danke Schon for the wonderful Lebkucken this holiday season!

Think Nuremberg is the only place to find traditional Lebkuchen?...think again. The folks at Leckerlee have mastered the historic art. The Lebkucken are wonderful and the decorative, sentimental tins are every bit as nostalgic as those from Germany.

Minis are Magnificent!
So the tin is super cute, so are the cookies. And so dangerous, can you eat just one? We may be the only people who actually transported Leckerlee lebkuchen from NYC TO GERMANY. And people have been trying to send us home FROM GERMANY with local lebkuchen but we say 'nein danke" because we know we can get the good stuff when we get home! Wunderschoen is just about all we can say about Leckerlee in all shapes and sizes! Just placed a repeat order...

A lovely surprise
My friend's parents are German and used to send her a box of traditional German Christmas treats, but they both died last year. So I sent the cookies to my friend as a "Christmas" surprise.

World's best Lebkuchen!
"We've enjoyed Lebkuchen all of our lives. When our favorite bakery in Michigan closed several years ago we thought we would never taste the real thing again.

They've already been consumed & we'll be ordering more soon."

Well, that title may be debated, but it certainly would be a contender. Not only do my husband and I negotiate who ate how many of these delicious cookies, but we've given them to numerous friends who couldn't keep their hands off as well and polished the tins in no time. Clearly, they are made with the best ingredients, including lots of care.

Beautiful Lebkuchen
Unfortunately, these did not taste as good as they looked. In my opinion, they needed just a touch more salt and a bit more sugar to stand up to the other seasonings. Again, they looked beautiful, but I did not do more than taste the two cakes because of the general lack of flavor.
Gregory Y. Verified Reviewer 2013-12-01
Lebkuchen That Hits the Spot!
Being a self-proclaimed world-foodie, I've had lebkuchen and then I've had LEBK_CHEN! Leckerlee hits the mark with its elegantly presented alternative to the Christmas fruitcake (though i hope you have room on your holiday menus for both). Authentic in every way, these huge wheels studded with almonds and infused with spices will satisfy and delight. The chocolate covered lebk_chen are a nice tweak of the original recipe!

I've tried a fair amount of lebkuchen and Leckerlee's is very high quality - chewy, nutty, and the spice combination is especially tasty and potent.

I have already ordered another tin and will continue to order every season.

Forget fruitcake, get Lebkuchen!
I recently purchased Lebkuchen from Leckerlee for the third season. They are superb and a wonderful fall/winter treat to look forward to. The tins are lovely and sturdy, perfect for gift-giving (and you'll want them for yourself, too!). The mini Lebkuchen offered this year are a nice variation and the smaller tin for these is so cute. Thank you for providing this German gingerbread to a US audience. I always think I won't gobble them up as quickly a I do! The "Lebkuchen in bulk" option is great for that.

This is the second year I've ordered from Leckerlee. We've already finished the first batch and I'm ordering more this week end.

Best Lebkuchen outside Germany!!
"We've tried our first Leckerlee lebkuchen in 2011 and have loved them ever since. Being German, we missed the traditional (and original tasting) Lebkuchen during the holiday seasons. Leckerlee are easily the best Lebkuchen outside Germany. They even beat several German brands!! Please keep it going. You - and your product - are amazing!"
Joel F. Verified Reviewer 2013-11-14
Waited all year!
"To say these are the best lebkuchen, although true, doesn't help those unfamiliar with this classic German treat! These cookies are delicious, without doubt. the textures in the cookie are complex and true to original recipes. The mouth has a lot to experience, and it is all delightful. The tastes are equally as complex and delicious. the way the sweetness and spices interact and complement each other, and the fact that your tongue and palate can distinguish all these flavors, is a tremendous accomplishment of the Leckerlee bakers. Most definitely a truely delicious treat, definitely addicting, and a definite flavor of the holiday season that will be an indelible memory each year. My only problem...they are seasonal and once the season ends, I have to wait to get them again!! If you've never had lebkuchen before, these are the ones that will spoil you forever. If you've had these before, you know what I mean. Happy Holidays to all and Thanks to Leckerlee."

My mom is from Nurmeburg....so I grew up with my Oma shipping Lebkucken across the Atlantic at Holiday time. Once they were available in the States ( the stuff you get at small groceries or import markets) that stopped. But until I was introduced to Leckerlee's, I did not realize what I was missing !! It is somethings really something special! Not only is it part of our family's holiday tradition , it is fast becoming a Holiday tradition to friends we introduce it to. (I give packages to special friends and neighbor's at Holiday time)

Simply wonderful!
We first read about Sandy Lee's lebkuchen in the late fall of 2014 and ordered some directly from the Leckerlee website, as well as sending gift orders to about 6 relatives.Let's just say we were not disappointed and ordered more this year, especially for ourselves! You might think the lebkuchen are relativley expensive, but this is a case of where you get what you pay for- 100%. They are delicious, with a lovely nuanced flavor mix to be savored and enjoyed. Not just another cookie to be scarfed down absent-mindedly. They are quite special. And we feel Sandy Lee must be quite special, as her warm, light, sweet personality seems to permiate Leckerlee's communications and even her product. Highly recommended.

Perfect Holiday Gifts
I gifted this tin to my sister because I love the stained glass look of it and knew she would, too. The pale colors were just as pretty in person. My sister introduced me to this site last year when she bought me a tin, and now we've started a holiday tradition of buying a tin for each other every year because it's absolutely worth it! It only took a year for swapping these lebkuchen tins to become my favorite holiday tradition. Wonderfully delicious lebkuchen with a new tin every year that is both utilitarian, adorable, and full of holiday memories. While the lebkuchen is so delicious that I'm sad they're only available during the holidays, I'm also relieved--it just makes them that much more special.

I sent this to my parents for Christmas. My mom called to tell me it was the best lebkuchen she'd had since moving from Bitburg. So much fresher than what she can get at the base commissary.

Special tins for extra special Lebkuchen.
Lebkuchen received in a Leckerlee tin is a double treat! The plastic containers are nice to have and reuse also. Of course the quality ingredients make a Christmas treat to be enjoyed during the year if frozen; that is my plan!!
Nathaniel Hourt Verified Reviewer 2016-02-01
They're good. JustY try them.
I've got no flowery words or creative similes with which to emphasize how good these cookies are. All I can say is they're really darn good. I know they're pricy, but go ahead and splurge just this once and give them a shot. You won't regret it. You do get what you pay for. Besides that, they're really quite hefty cookies. One of these things is reasonably filling!

This year we introduced our newly extended family to an authentic German holiday tradition: Lebkuchen.

Lebkuchen Tradition
Lebkuchen is my German family tradition. Although the recipe is different than my Grandmother's, it is much like the packaged type I bought at the Munich airport years ago. I like Leckerlee's spices, nuts, candied fruit, glace and especially the fine quality chocolate. My son surprised me with a tin of five cookies for my first taste in 2014. So, in 2015, I did not bake my family recipe but ordered from Leckerlee! Simply put,...I am very happy having Leckerlee's Lebkuchen. Thank you Sandy.

Like in old times
Having lived in this country for nearly 50 years I was delighted to get Leckerlee Lebkuchen as a Christmas present from my daughter who lives in New York. The Lebkuchen brought back memories from my childhood in Germany. Leckerlee's are authentic, flavorful with just the right spice mix, and moist. They are addictive! They have become a Christmas tradition in my family. Danke schön.

Schokolade makes these treats even more "lecker"!
Having learned to make my grandmother's Leckerle at an early age, I have been a purist about the lovely sugar topping on my version of this marvelous spice cookie/cake. Sandy's chocolate is beyond compare and made the Leckerlee extra delicious. I enjoyed the additional spices in Sandy's Leckerlee as well as the packaging and the "taste of the season". Worth the price and a wonderful unusual gift... if you can part with them!

Absolutely the best!
"I've never had lebkuchen from Germany, but if, like me, you've had most lebkuchen available in the US, you may think they're supposed to be dry, flavorless, and you'd be wondering what the Germans are thinking! I am a huge fan of both gingerbread and fruitcake (don't hold that against me, though!) and, for me, at least these are a perfect balance between the two. Plus, they're more portable than either of those -- these come in just perfect portion-sized ""cookies."" These are not the pre-packaged, made-6-months-before-you-buy-them kind of lebkuchen. These are large, fresh, and bursting with flavor. You can taste the quality ingredients. Yes, they're about $5 each, but they are an amazing treat. The chocolate ones are amazing on their own, and I love the plain ones with a hot cup of black coffee. I wish I could have them all year, but it is probably for the best since I'd probably weigh 200 more pounds if they were!"

"What a treat! My sample bite of Leckerlee's lebkuchen cookie at a holiday fair in NYC transported me back to my childhood when I enjoyed homemade lebkuchen each year from my mother's efforts. They were just as moist, flavorful and aromatic. I immediately placed orders as gifts for my sisters (and added an order for me, too!). What a special treat that I will look forward to each year as one of my new traditions. Thank you, Leckerlee's!!"

Best Lebkuchen ever!
I've been to Germany numerous times and I discovered Lebkuchen in Nuremberg. I used to buy imported Lebkuchen when I could find any. I read about Leckerlee in the NY Times food section a few years ago and knew I had to order some. These are absolutely fresh and delicious--moist, chewy, authentically spiced, and there is even have the "Oblaten" wafer on the bottom of each cookie. So much care goes into these Lebkuchen. They're just wonderful and I look forward to ordering them every Christmas. They truly live up to their name--"Lecker" in German means "delicious"!
Ann Moore Verified Reviewer 2016-02-01
better than in Bavaria
My family comes from Bavaria and I've always loved lebkuchen. I used to have to bring suitcases of it home when I would go visit my family; but now with Leckerlee making superb lebkuchen, I'm so glad those days are over and, I'm especially pleased, because I can honestly say that her lebkuchen are better than what I have often bought in Germany! I'm thrilled. They're my favorite Xmas gift to give now.

The BEST lebkuchen
I first read about Leckerlee lebkuchen from a Martha Stewart article and thought sure, why not try it out. My German mother-in-law used to make lebkuchen from scratch every Christmas, but is no longer in good enough health to bake. She is extremely picky about lebkuchen and Leckerlee is the ONLY lebkuchen she will eat now! I buy boxes of this stuff every year for gifts...and not going to lie, for myself to eat too!! It also freezes well, so stock up when it's in season.

Can't get enough!
I can't get enough of these, wish they were available year-round! I've never been to Germany but German friends have brought me some and these taste the same. I daresay better, actually. Love the chocolate ones! Not too sweet and great mouthfeel. I totally hoard these from my husband and kids.

My sister's Aupair is from Germany and I have given these to her for the past 2 Christmases. She says that these taste great; real authentic German gingerbread.

Authentic and wonderful
When I was growing up in the 1960's we had overseas friends who would ship us German lebkuchen every year at Christmas. Having grown up with it, i can say that the Leckerlee product is the real deal, just like we used to get when I was a kid (except the Leckerlee product is much fresher!) If you haven't ever had lebkuchen you owe it to yourself to give it a try. It is a wonderful, sweet and chewy confection, a little reminiscent of gingerbread but filled with ground nuts and spices to make it way better. Amazing!!
Anita Macdougall Verified Reviewer 2016-02-01

Amazing lebkuchen, lovely reusable tin
"Leckerlee makes the absolute best lebkuchen in this style, and if you're like me, you think this style is the best style. They have a hearty feel with a great blend of textures, but never gritty. The perfect balance of flavor and spice. The chocolate ones have just enough chocolate to not overpower the spice and texture. We enjoy them with coffee and tea in the morning and milk as a nighttime treat. This tin is gorgeous and light. I reuse it by putting open bags of whole coffee beans in it and continue to get compliments on it even after the cookies and the holidays have passed."

"I have been purchasing Lebkuchen from the very beginning. In fact, I called you to say I am a retired CEO of Bahlsen Keksfabrik USA offering any kind of assistance you might want or need. The offer is still open. I mentor many types of businesses. This year was an all time high purchase year. I sent to several different addresses for gifts and personal consumption. I am ordering additional product now as one of my mentees is going on an extended trip and I thought she might like a great snack to take along on the trip. All my recipients rave about the product. I am very pleased with your service and the consistency of quality for all your products. I usually order in bulk, having collected many gift tins over the years. Thanks for being in business.

Each bite reminds me of Germany
"Leckerlee's Lebkuchen is so LECKER (yummy in German). My husband and I lived there a good few years back. So this year were really looking forward to picking up our goodies at Christmas time. The lebkuchen transports us back eating these cookies / biscuits at our local Weihnachtmarkt. The taste, flavour and texture are SO much better though. Thanks for making these and spreading the joy here in the US!"

My husband's aunt made these cookies when he was a boy and he has craved them ever since! When reading the article about Leckerlee in Martha Stewart's magazine, I had hesitant hope. After ordering a batch and watching the very picky taste tester take his first bite, I knew the rest was history! Fresh and delicious! The BEST!

As good as in Deutschland
The best Lebkuchen I've ever had was from a small local vendor selling them in the Nuremberg main market. I had already bought a bunch at the established shops there, but I sampled these that were home made, and they were delicious. Leckerlee's are delicious, and the equal to those Lebkuchen in every way.

My mother was born in Germany and grew up with lebkuchen. As I child in the 70s, they weren't easily available in the US and my grandfather always sent them to us from Germany. We always had fond memories of eating them around the holidays. My family and I found Leckerlee while visiting in NY and were delighted to taste a local lebkuchen that's much better than the imported factory made ones. I ordered some for my mom and plan on ordering them for us and my extended family every year. Highly recommend!

Best Holiday Cookies
You've never taste a Lebkuchen until you've tried a one made by Leckeli. I love the mysterious warm spice, flavors suspended in a soft and chewey cookie. They are sweet but not cloyingly so. Every bite reveals something surprising: a little piece of orange rind or citron or ground almonds. I buy these cookies every year. They never fail to please.

I'm beginning to lose count of how many times I've returned to the Leckerlee website to place more orders! Lebkuchen are beyond delicious!! I have a world-traveler friend who visited Germany one year during the Christmas season & she reported that the toy & holiday food festivals there are fabulous, especially the Christmas cookies-- lebkuchen. When I sent Lekerlee's New York lebkuchen in my Christmas package I received a thank you note -- the Leckerlee lebkuchen are so delicious that they remind her of her of her wonderful trip to the Christmas festival in Germany. So from all my friends who rave about the delicious tins of lebkuchen that I send, along with the expert who has tasted the German variety, and my family, I can say without reservation that Leckerlee lebkuchen rate with the best

Better than the lebkuchen in Nuremburg.
I lived in Germany from 1986 -1989. Although there were Christmas markets in many German communities, I looked forward to visiting Nuremberg each December and eating fresh lebkuchen. I knew the stand with the freshest cookies. I've been back to Germany a couple of times during the holidays and was disappointed when I couldn't locate my favorite bakery stand. No worries! I've discovered Leckerlee and they're the best I've ever had. Sandy is a miracle maker!!! Denise Saviano

I grew up eating Lebkuchen in Germany, and cannot believe how amazingly authentic these Leckerlee gingerbreads are. In fact, their freshness, flavor, and quality exceed anything that you can buy from German bakers. These are seasonally produced, so I urge you to buy them in large quantities when they are made available for sale. "Lecker" means "yummy" in German, and the name perfectly fits this delicious product.

To me, Lebkuchen is Christmastime!
I lived in Germany for 7 years growing up and my favorite time of year was always Christmas. The Christmas markets in Germany cannot be beat! I always bought lots of lebkuchen to enjoy once we got home. I have missed this moist, flavorful cookies ever since I returned to the states. I have attempted recreating them myself without success. A friend suggested Leckerlee to me and I am so glad she did! These lebkuchen are delicious and authentic. They take me back to Christmas markets in Germany with every bite. I buy them for myself and for my family. I keep one pound of minis in the freezer to enjoy after the Christmas season has ended and they're no longer available. It is an experience I look forward to. Lecklerlee's dedication to customer service and authentic products makes it worth the wait!

Perfection!
There really IS perfection in the relative when it comes to Leckerlee's Lebkuchen!!! We received these cake-like cookies as a Christmas gift and I simply cannot stop thinking about them! We have 1 1/2 cake-cookies left, and I can't bear to finish them. Truly, Leckerlee has mastered the taste and texture of this German gingerbread. With such high nut content, I am hoping that Leckerlee will consider creating a gluten free version for next year, as I am hopeful that the flours portion of the recipe can achieve greatness with gluten free ones. In fact, since Leckerlee is already perfect, I completely trust their ability to duplicate perfection in a gluten free choice. Thank you for your dedication to a divine treat which is certainly now a new family tradition for our holidays. Would love this year-round. Great for gifts! Thank you, Leckerlee!
Jane Behan Verified Reviewer 2016-02-06
Sublime
"Maybe it sounds like overkill to call a cookie ""superb,"" but these lebkuchen are a distillation of the scents, sights and tastes of wintry Europe of centuries past, with a faint connection to Rome. The honey, the warm spices, the bits of citron enlivening the dense sweetness are perfect. Leckerlee adds a huge proportion of ground nuts, which creates a cookie with enough lightness and texture to carry the wallop of flavor. Best. Ever."

Leckerlee is up there on my list of favourite things. Not only are the lebkuchen delicious but the tins are gorgeous and the customer service is out of this world! Every year I look forward to the Leckerlee season starting. I make sure to put in an order and to get a tin for one of my dear friends who is of German descent - she loves them too! This year I also purchased the lovely Leckerlee tote bag and I use it pretty much every day. Thanks Leckerlee for being so wonderful! We love you up here in Montreal!

The best I ever had!
I was shopping in Whole Foods when I came across the delightful red and green tin in the bakery section. The container beckoned me to come and try the delights within. I made my way to the register completely forgetting what I came to purchase. As I made my way to the car, I could not restrain myself from peeking into the drum. In it, I found 7 disc shaped cookies whose smell captivated me. I chose the chocolate covered one. The smell of ginger wafted up to my nose and I inhaled deeply. I wanted to savor every moment with this cookie., so I took a small bite into the dark chocolate. Wow! There are no words to explain the feeling of joy. No! It was Nirvana! Love is a Leckerlee Lebkuchen! After the tin was empty I ordered 4 pounds more. Thank you for the best Lebkuchen in the world!!!!

Home baked cookies are always a special treat at the holidays, but lebkuchen from Leckerlee takes that tradition to a whole new level. They are a unique gift you can be proud to give plus the tins are lovely and useful. One of my gifts always goes to my friend whose mom was born in Germany and moved to the US with her soldier husband 60+ years ago. Her reaction the first time she tasted Leckerlee lubkuchen? "Where did you get cookies from Germany?!!"

My best cookie!
My friend gave me a Lebkuchen before Christmas. It looked little bit bigger than other cookie and I wanted to keep a half of Lebkuhen for my children. However, after I started eating a piece of cookie, I couldn't stop eating...sorry my kids. Then, I called my friend and got information about Leckerlee. I ordered mini Lebkuchen and other assorted for them(me). I have never eaten this kind of cookie in my country,Japan. Leckerlee's lebkuchen is very tasty and I like ingredient . I'm waiting for order this winter. Thank you Leckerlee and my friend!!!

Leckerlee is the perfect name for this delicious cookie! Lecker means delicious in German. Treat yourself to these cookies. You will not be disappointed. These are by far the best lebkuchen we've ever had. We look forward every year to ordering cookies for ourselves and our family and friends. We especially love the chocolate ones.

Yummy anytime treat
I was first attracted to Leckerlee by the cute tins but keep coming back for the delicious contents! I have tried all the varieties (classic, chocolate, mini) and they are all great but if I had to choose just one kind, it would have to be classic minis - portable, bite-sized, and perfect for breakfast or afternoon snacking. These lebkuchens are sweet, spicy, and packed with fruits and nuts. What's not to love?

Better than Lebkuchen I purchased from Germany
This Lebkuchen is the best I have ever had. I have been ordering premium lebkuchen imported from Germany but decided this year to try these when I saw them mentioned in an article. Glad I did. These have more nuts and are better than the ones I was buying. I prefer my Lebkuchen with the plain glaze, not chocolate, and they are hard to find. Here I can purchase as many as I want. I definitely will be buying more next Christmas. My only complaint is that they are a holiday treat and not available all year long. But I guess that's probably a blessing.

Bought the lovely Winter Haus tin at the preseason 40% off sale. A friend (Erin Hill) who turned me on to Leckerlee Lebuchen couldn't afford to buy any this year, so I offered to send her the tin, since I knew she collected them. Of course, I couldn't send it completely empty, so I threw in a few as well as some bourbon balls I made. She was profusely thankful and said the lebkuchen were gone within 20 minutes of opening the package. That about sums up the true feelings of all Leckerlee Lebkuchen fans!

My daughter looks forward to receiving your cookies for her birthday each year in December. One year I was able to purchase at our local Williams-Sonoma store which was so convenient. Wish your company could begin working with them once more as I would purchase more of them to give to friends locally without having to pay shipping.

Got hooked when my daughter was living in New York and bought these one year. I even visited the small shop with her one year and we purchased tins of the Lebkuchens. The cookies are so good. We thoroughly enjoy eating them. My daughter now has a collection of the tins! A friend who has lived in Germany enjoyed them. Keep baking!!

The real deal
I'm a 70 year old daughter of German immigrants; we had lebkuchen every year when I was a child. I can attest to the fact that these are the real deal - absolutely delicious: soft but slightly chewy on the outside, perfectly spiced and just the right density. I like the smaller ones better -- less authentic but better for a single treat.

A Holiday Tradition reborn
I grew up in the Holiday Lebkuchen Capitol of europe. And lebkuchen are a must have staple for a holiday season well lived. After moving to the states, even though I fully embraced my new home country a slight sadness kept creeping in around the holidays missing my childhood experiences. But then one year Sandy and Leckerlee made their first appearance at a Brooklyn holiday market, one bite and the holiday season was once again filled with warmth, spice and sweetness. The Leckerlee lebkuchen couldn't be better, in fact—and this might upset the lebkuchen establishment in Bavaria—they are the best I ever had, and I had many. An incredibly hight nut content paired with a well rounded spice blend, baked on the traditional lebkuchen oblaten, covered either with the traditional thin sugar glaze or with melt-in-your-mouth dark chocolate, they couldn't be more scrumptious. And Leckerlee's very high standard of quality has remained at a gourmet level every year. Since the first discovery of Sandra Lee's Leckerlee no holiday season passes without a generous helping of lebkuchen. And now with the fabulous concierge service new this season I can even indulge my clients and friends with these delectable treats without having to pack and run to the post office. Did I mention the delightful designs of the tins?"

A taste of Christmas
A few years back, I was looking for different ways to observe the Christmas season. One way was through food. I was intrigued by the German tradition of lebkuchen. Then when I discoverd Leckerlee, it was a wonderful addition to my Christmas observance. And the lebkuchens are delicious!

Lebkuchen at the top of its class
Leckerlee Lebkuchen is my favorite treat for the holidays. First, with the lebkuchen itself, no corners are cut in terms of ingredients, only the highest quality of which are used. You can tell right away this is the case and the Leckerlee recipe is one that allows all the ingredients come forward while at them same time remaining harmonious. Every year I seem to alternate my opinion of which style I prefer. Last year, chocolate, this year it was plain, but ultimately the truth is, I like them equally as they both deliver the highest level of satisfaction. Second, there is the tin to consider. Every year I look forward to the new designs and collect them all. They are a happy memory of my holiday season and give me something to look forward to the following year. Plus, they make great gifts. Finally I will say that I took a trip to Switzerland recently and sought out other lebkuchen to try. Though I came across examples in both the Nuremberg and Zurich style I had to reject them due to their use of poor ingredients. Too bad, but I did find some good examples of Bernese lebkuchen. It did not however, despite its quality, compare to that of Leckerlee's Nuremberg style lebkuchen. I may bemoan the lack of good Swiss chocolate available in the States, but feel very lucky to have at will what I am sure is one of the world's top examples of lebkuchen. Thanks, Sandy, for your efforts in keeping this tradition alive.

A New Tradition
I stumbled across leckerlee via an online gift guide around Christmas time a few years ago not even knowing what lebkuchen was (or even how to pronounce it). It sure sounded delicious though so I ordered a tin for my twin sister who, at the time, recently moved far away from me and was to spend Christmas alone. She loved them so much she immediately sent me a tin for my very own and thus our new tradition of gifting each other lebkuchen every Christmas season was born. But not just any lebkuchen, Leckerlee! The lebkuchen is so delicious and flavorful! And if the lebkuchen themselves wasn't enough, they come in the most perfect tins which are so well made and impressively designed. My sister and I always look forward to the start of the lebkuchen season, not just for the treats, but for the reveal of the new tins! This year I shared my tin (from my sister of course) with my family as a Christmas Eve dessert and everyone agreed that the lebkuchen was fantastic! And when kept stored in their totally adorable and practical tins, the lebkuchen seem to stay fresh for a long time. I agree with other reviewers that the lebkuchen is not overly sweet and balanced just right with the spices.
Theresa Rodriguez Verified Reviewer 2016-02-02
holiday decadence
Something like a cross between a frosted cookie and a spiced cake, sitting on a paper thin, edible wafer, a lebkuchen is one of those special treats that herald the festive season, and its warming spices recall memories of holidays past like nothing else. Leckerlee's lebkuchen are a particular treat, being softer and spongier than typical store-bought lebkuchen, appreciatively less sweet, and made with a special balance of spices that achieves perfection. The frosted lebkuchen, with their almond accents, are as festive as holiday decor, and the chocolate lebkuchen, with their rich, decadent coating of heady dark chocolate, are heaven for the chocolate inclined. At once a call to your inner child and a nod to your elevated, grown up taste buds, Leckerlee's lebkuchen are a special treat you are sure to love. Once you take a bite, they will become part of your holiday tradition for years to come.

All time best cookie!
I love, love, love these cookies! For years I have looked for a cookie or recipe that reminded me of the one made by the lady next door when I was growing up. She was from Germany and made these delicious cookies at Halloween for treats . The neighborhood children couldn't wait to get to her house. Your cookies are just like what I remember from my childhood and bring back some wonderful memories. Thankfully I found you. Thank you for making such a wonderful treat!

Fantastic Lebkuchen - better than from Germany
We've been enjoying the wonderful Leckerlee Lebkuchen ever since we first discovered them sharing a corner of the Melt Bakery shop on Orchard Street several years ago. They are simply and purely delicious, and the texture and chewiness is superb. Everyone we've shared them with has always agreed that they are simply amazing. I've been to Germany on business and brought Lebkuchen home from there, but we like Leckerlee's the best!

I'm so happy to have found Leckerlee and thrilled Sandy now ships to the west coast of Canada! My first order I had to ship to a San Fran hotel where my colleague was staying so he could bring them back to Vancouver (I paid him in kind with a lebkuchen!). My Weihnachten memories spring forth from each bite of Sandy's lebkuchen. I savour a mini-one with my morning coffee during the holiday season and I am happy. Good quality ingredients and baked with love - you can't go wrong. Thank you Sandy!

Finally lebkucken in the states!
"As a kid, my german aunt would send me Lebkuchen for Christmas. As I grew up, she stopped. I had found some lebkuchen available online to be sent to me, but the exported lebkuchen is often dry and low in nuts, so not as delicious. After I discovered these, I was hooked! They are moist and full of nuts and spices for delicious flavor that reminds me of the best lebkuchen available in Germany. I really enjoy the mini size so that I can indulge my craving for delicious cookies without being too horrible on my diet. The larger number of small cookies also makes me more likely to share with my friends."

Schmeck das
Oh, I love lebkuchen and my favorite was bought every year at a specialty store....until my daughter living in New Jersey told me about Lecherlee. Now I order before the holidays, and after. (So I can keep some in the freezer for those moments in summer when I long for the taste of winter.) When I am truly generous I share this coveted treat. On one such occasion I shared with my brother who had lived in Germany for two years. His comment was it was the best lebkuchen he has ever eaten. Amen!!!

Perfection!
There really IS perfection in the relative when it comes to Leckerlee's Lebkuchen!!! We received these cake-like cookies as a Christmas gift and I simply cannot stop thinking about them! We have 1 1/2 cake-cookies left, and I can't bear to finish them. Truly, Leckerlee has mastered the taste and texture of this German gingerbread. With such high nut content, I am hoping that Leckerlee will consider creating a gluten free version for next year, as I am hopeful that the flours portion of the recipe can achieve greatness with gluten free ones. In fact, since Leckerlee is already perfect, I completely trust their ability to duplicate perfection in a gluten free choice. Thank you for your dedication to a divine treat which is certainly now a new family tradition for our holidays. Would love this year-round. Great for gifts! Thank you, Leckerlee!
Jane Behan Verified Reviewer 2016-02-06
Sublime
"Maybe it sounds like overkill to call a cookie ""superb,"" but these lebkuchen are a distillation of the scents, sights and tastes of wintry Europe of centuries past, with a faint connection to Rome. The honey, the warm spices, the bits of citron enlivening the dense sweetness are perfect. Leckerlee adds a huge proportion of ground nuts, which creates a cookie with enough lightness and texture to carry the wallop of flavor. Best. Ever."

My daughter looks forward to receiving your cookies for her birthday each year in December. One year I was able to purchase at our local Williams-Sonoma store which was so convenient. Wish your company could begin working with them once more as I would purchase more of them to give to friends locally without having to pay shipping.

So good!!
Got hooked when my daughter was living in New York and bought these one year. I even visited the small shop with her one year and we purchased tins of the Lebkuchens. The cookies are so good. We thoroughly enjoy eating them. My daughter now has a collection of the tins! A friend who has lived in Germany enjoyed them. Keep baking!!

The real deal
I'm a 70 year old daughter of German immigrants; we had lebkuchen every year when I was a child. I can attest to the fact that these are the real deal - absolutely delicious: soft but slightly chewy on the outside, perfectly spiced and just the right density. I like the smaller ones better -- less authentic but better for a single treat.

the incredible mix of ingredients
WOW we are big Fans of Sandys Lebkuchens- growing up in Switzerland this was part of our childhood Christmas'- but must say those memories have been replaced by the goodness from Leckerlee -our whole family children grandchildren look already forward to ordering this coming autumn. Thankyou Sandy for bringing this delectable treat to our shores. Marion and Heinz B

A Holiday Tradition reborn
"I grew up in the Holiday Lebkuchen Capitol of europe. And lebkuchen are a must have staple for a holiday season well lived. After moving to the states, even though I fully embraced my new home country a slight sadness kept creeping in around the holidays missing my childhood experiences. But then one year Sandy and Leckerlee made their first appearance at a Brooklyn holiday market, one bite and the holiday season was once again filled with warmth, spice and sweetness. The Leckerlee lebkuchen couldn't be better, in fact—and this might upset the lebkuchen establishment in Bavaria—they are the best I ever had, and I had many. An incredibly hight nut content paired with a well rounded spice blend, baked on the traditional lebkuchen oblaten, covered either with the traditional thin sugar glaze or with melt-in-your-mouth dark chocolate, they couldn't be more scrumptious. And Leckerlee's very high standard of quality has remained at a gourmet level every year. Since the first discovery of Sandra Lee's Leckerlee no holiday season passes without a generous helping of lebkuchen. And now with the fabulous concierge service—new this season—I can even indulge my clients and friends with these delectable treats without having to pack and run to the post office. Did I mention the delightful designs of the tins?"

A taste of Christmas
A few years back, I was looking for different ways to observe the Christmas season. One way was through food. I was intrigued by the German tradition of lebkuchen. Then when I discoverd Leckerlee, it was a wonderful addition to my Christmas observance. And the lebkuchens are delicious!

Lebkuchen at the top of its class
Leckerlee Lebkuchen is my favorite treat for the holidays. First, with the lebkuchen itself, no corners are cut in terms of ingredients, only the highest quality of which are used. You can tell right away this is the case and the Leckerlee recipe is one that allows all the ingredients come forward while at them same time remaining harmonious. Every year I seem to alternate my opinion of which style I prefer. Last year, chocolate, this year it was plain, but ultimately the truth is, I like them equally as they both deliver the highest level of satisfaction. Second, there is the tin to consider. Every year I look forward to the new designs and collect them all. They are a happy memory of my holiday season and give me something to look forward to the following year. Plus, they make great gifts. Finally I will say that I took a trip to Switzerland recently and sought out other lebkuchen to try. Though I came across examples in both the Nuremberg and Zurich style I had to reject them due to their use of poor ingredients. Too bad, but I did find some good examples of Bernese lebkuchen. It did not however, despite its quality, compare to that of Leckerlee's Nuremberg style lebkuchen. I may bemoan the lack of good Swiss chocolate available in the States, but feel very lucky to have at will what I am sure is one of the world's top examples of lebkuchen. Thanks, Sandy, for your efforts in keeping this tradition alive.

The best Holiday cookie ever!
Leckerlee Lebkuchen is the best Holiday treat in our home. We eat them through out the season and give them as gifts to our business partners, employees, friends and family. Everyone just loves them! If I want to give a holiday gift that I know will be loved by someone, I give them a tin of Leckerlee Lebkuchen. Thank you for making such a delicious treat!

A New Tradition
I stumbled across leckerlee via an online gift guide around Christmas time a few years ago not even knowing what lebkuchen was (or even how to pronounce it). It sure sounded delicious though so I ordered a tin for my twin sister who, at the time, recently moved far away from me and was to spend Christmas alone. She loved them so much she immediately sent me a tin for my very own and thus our new tradition of gifting each other lebkuchen every Christmas season was born. But not just any lebkuchen, Leckerlee! The lebkuchen is so delicious and flavorful! And if the lebkuchen themselves wasn't enough, they come in the most perfect tins which are so well made and impressively designed. My sister and I always look forward to the start of the lebkuchen season, not just for the treats, but for the reveal of the new tins! This year I shared my tin (from my sister of course) with my family as a Christmas Eve dessert and everyone agreed that the lebkuchen was fantastic! And when kept stored in their totally adorable and practical tins, the lebkuchen seem to stay fresh for a long time. I agree with other reviewers that the lebkuchen is not overly sweet and balanced just right with the spices.
Theresa Rodriguez Verified Reviewer 2016-02-02
holiday decadence
Something like a cross between a frosted cookie and a spiced cake, sitting on a paper thin, edible wafer, a lebkuchen is one of those special treats that herald the festive season, and its warming spices recall memories of holidays past like nothing else. Leckerlee's lebkuchen are a particular treat, being softer and spongier than typical store-bought lebkuchen, appreciatively less sweet, and made with a special balance of spices that achieves perfection. The frosted lebkuchen, with their almond accents, are as festive as holiday decor, and the chocolate lebkuchen, with their rich, decadent coating of heady dark chocolate, are heaven for the chocolate inclined. At once a call to your inner child and a nod to your elevated, grown up taste buds, Leckerlee's lebkuchen are a special treat you are sure to love. Once you take a bite, they will become part of your holiday tradition for years to come.

All time best cookie!
I love, love, love these cookies! For years I have looked for a cookie or recipe that reminded me of the one made by the lady next door when I was growing up. She was from Germany and made these delicious cookies at Halloween for treats . The neighborhood children couldn't wait to get to her house. Your cookies are just like what I remember from my childhood and bring back some wonderful memories. Thankfully I found you. Thank you for making such a wonderful treat!

"Happiness is receiving my package of Lebkuchen! Happiness is sharing my package with friends and watching their faces as they experience Lebkuchen for the first time, and cannot believe the wonderful taste. Happiness is when Thanksgiving rolls around and you start making Lebkuchen again! Extreme happiness is that first bite, tasting that delicious bittersweet chocolate and then bursting with flavor of fond gingerbread and almond paste memories of growing up with Lebkuchen.

Fantastic Lebkuchen - better than from Germany
We've been enjoying the wonderful Leckerlee Lebkuchen ever since we first discovered them sharing a corner of the Melt Bakery shop on Orchard Street several years ago. They are simply and purely delicious, and the texture and chewiness is superb. Everyone we've shared them with has always agreed that they are simply amazing. I've been to Germany on business and brought Lebkuchen home from there, but we like Leckerlee's the best!

I'm so happy to have found Leckerlee and thrilled Sandy now ships to the west coast of Canada! My first order I had to ship to a San Fran hotel where my colleague was staying so he could bring them back to Vancouver (I paid him in kind with a lebkuchen!). My Weihnachten memories spring forth from each bite of Sandy's lebkuchen. I savour a mini-one with my morning coffee during the holiday season and I am happy. Good quality ingredients and baked with love - you can't go wrong. Thank you Sandy!

What a find at the Christmas Market in New York. I had never enjoyed such a quality Lebkuchen in the states (unless I brought them home from Germany myself). Beautifully packaged in holiday tins they make great gifts. I look forward to ordering them online for many holiday seasons to come.

Finally lebkucken in the states!
"As a kid, my german aunt would send me Lebkuchen for Christmas. As I grew up, she stopped. I had found some lebkuchen available online to be sent to me, but the exported lebkuchen is often dry and low in nuts, so not as delicious. After I discovered these, I was hooked! They are moist and full of nuts and spices for delicious flavor that reminds me of the best lebkuchen available in Germany. I really enjoy the mini size so that I can indulge my craving for delicious cookies without being too horrible on my diet. The larger number of small cookies also makes me more likely to share with my friends."

Schmeck das
Oh, I love lebkuchen and my favorite was bought every year at a specialty store....until my daughter living in New Jersey told me about Lecherlee. Now I order before the holidays, and after. (So I can keep some in the freezer for those moments in summer when I long for the taste of winter.) When I am truly generous I share this coveted treat. On one such occasion I shared with my brother who had lived in Germany for two years. His comment was it was the best lebkuchen he has ever eaten. Amen!!!

When I visited Germany ten years ago, I fell in love with Lebkuchen, and thereafter I craved them every holiday season back in New York. After being disappointed by a mass packaged imported brand at a gourmet deli store, I did a search for NYC bakeries that made them, and that's when I found Leckerlee, hallelujah! Fresh ingredients, melt in your mouth, euphoria. Thank you Leckerlee, for making the holidays special. Your cookies are the highlight of my season every year! I buy them for my friends and I buy myself a whole package so I don't have to share!

Better Than in Germany!
I have been introduced to Leckerlee by a German friend, who swears by these lebkuchen. They are the best I have ever tasted. I am French, and a foodie, and I know what quality is in baking. The cookies always arrive freshly baked, and keep their freshness for weeks. They have a perfect texture, soft, but hearthy, with a delicate glazing that adds just the right amount of sweetness. The balance in spices is addictive. These lebkuchen have become a tradition in our family the minute we took our first bite.
Patrice Choy Verified Reviewer 2016-02-01
From New York to Hawaii
December 2014, Union Square-Holiday Market: I bought two large Lebkuchen and savored each bite because I knew these would be the last two I would ever eat since I was moving home to Hawaii. The pronounced bite of spices-yet, gentle and balanced, the perfect texture and density of the Lebkuchen, and with just the right amount of sweetness warmed my soul and provided me with a culinary delight. Plus, knowing a lower amount of flour is used makes it very easy for me to devour these precious Leb. I really do dream about Lebkuchen and crave the unique, but comforting and warming taste. Once I arrived home, I discovered I could still get my fix of Lebkuchen all the way in the middle of the Pacific Ocean due to the fair flat rate shipping fee! So far, there is a fan club of three Lebkuchen fanatics in the valley I live in! Leckerlee Lebkuchen make us swoon!!!!

I hide these from my family
These are the cookies I wait for every year! I fell in love with lebkuchen 15 years ago on my first trip to Munich during the Christmas holiday but nothing back here in the States ever came close to what I experienced at the Weihnachtsmarkt. Nothing, that is, until I found Leckerlee. These are the cookies I remember, soft, spicy, not too sweet and filled with fruit and nuts. I treat these cookies like the amazing gems they are and have to confess to hiding a tin just for me. If I don’t, my family devours them - including my mother-in-law who was born in Germany and has her own memories of real lebkuchen. I love your lebkuchen, my family loves your lebkuchen and every person I have gifted them to or shared them with has raved about them as well. Thank you for bringing an authentic and delicious traditional German cookie to the U.S. - we are fans for life!

Great memory!
These Lebkuchen are reminiscent of the cookies I would receive in the care packages my German aunt used to send us from Berlin....they are very rich, flavorful, and full of holiday spices. I think she would approve! They are large, and filling; well worth the price. I love enjoying them with a cup of strong coffee or tea in the winter as a snack. For what its worth, I always go with the mixed tin: I like the variety of the chocolate coated and the regular cookies.

Truly a wonderful gift.
I haven't had this lebkuchen in years. Not because I don't love it because I do but because as my wife points out I bought it for her Christmas present. She sits across from me eating them in a silent taunt. I get them for her every year as she loves them and we both love the new tin every year as we add them to the shelf of lebkuchen tins that we have gotten over the years. I of course will continue to get them for her every year but I think next year I will buy a pair of them. Of course I will wait I'll hers are done before I reveal mine to her. Then I will sit there silently taunting her eating mine. That is until she tells me to hand them over which I will. I mean you don't want to make a librarian angry. You wouldn't like to see them when they are angry. I guess I will have to buy a third tin next year.

Wunderbar!….. Soft, Delicious….and simply Awesome!
"LECKERLEE LEBKUCHEN, the best I ever taste!. And this comes from a German who immigrated from Berlin to this Country in the mid-sixties. Since my arrival and around the Holidays I have always been in search for really good tasting Lebkuchen. Unfortunately I never did find a Lebkuchen to my satisfaction. Low and behold this past Christmas I received a darling Leckerlee Tin of Lebkuchen from my son and family. The taste of Leckerlee simply….Awesome! I did not know that this traditional German product could be made this this country and be so good. So, I ordered more for myself and also a Tin for one of my discriminating German friends. The fact that Leckerlee Lebkuchen are made without artificial ingredients is a super plus. The tins are lovely and can be re-used for lots of other things. Thank you Sandy Lee for bringing this special German treat to my doorsteps. Looking forward to the next season 2016-2017 of Leckerlee Lebkuchen."

My wife and I are always looking to try interesting foods with which we're not entirely familiar. Although we'd previously sampled variations on a theme similar to lebkuchen created during the holidays by a family friend, we were anxious to try out the real thing... and all roads led us to Leckerlee.

We'll be ordering them again for ourselves and as gifts.

The lebkuchen are delicious and authentic; I appreciate the different ways they can be purchased---decorative tins (recipients love them) or just "plain wrap for me!"

Also, I have found that working with Sandy and the Leckerlee staff to be so easy and positive; they are very conscientious, organized, caring!

They're good. Just try them.
I've got no flowery words or creative similes with which to emphasize how good these cookies are. All I can say is they're really darn good. I know they're pricy, but go ahead and splurge just this once and give them a shot. You won't regret it. You do get what you pay for. Besides that, they're really quite hefty cookies. One of these things is reasonably filling! Plus, they come with a pretty nice airtight tin, which can be reused for all kinds of useful things, or just used as decoration.

Lebkuchen from Leckerlee
Our Mom used to bake Lebkuchen and I spent some time in Southern Germany where I ate authentic Lebkuchen, but nothing compares to Leckerlee Lebkuchen! Our family (and some very dear friends who receive a tin of Leckerlee's Lebkuchen for Christmas), loves the nut-filled Lebkuchen that comes from Leckerlee in NYC! Leckerlee Lebkuchen is absolutely the very best!

Will become a Christmas tradition
"I received a tin of lebkuchen from a corporate supplier and took them home over the holidays last year to share with my mother. She absolutely loved them and particularly enjoyed pairing them with a cup of coffee during the chilly winter months. Since she raved so much about them, I did some research and found the Leckerlee website and ordered another tin for her this Christmas as a surprise. She was so excited to get them and savor every single one. Ordering lebkuchen for my mom and bringing a tin home for her for Christmas will become an annual tradition. Thanks Leckerlee for providing a Christmas treat for my mom in the years to come!"

Best Lebkuchen I've ever tasted - pure happiness!
When I bite into a Leckerlee cookie, it tastes like Christmas! It's pure happiness! Leckerlee's Lebkuchen are simply the best I've ever tasted, and I've had lebkuchen from many different countries and companies - actually, I try every different lebkuchen I come across. And Leckerlee is far and away the best! I've also gifted them to my cousins from Germany who were also crazy about the them. I can't recommend hear highly enough. They're actually my favorite cookie, period! Definitely try both the traditional and the chocolate covered. I love them both equally!

Fabulous
We love leckerlee! I gifted several tins this year and also purchased one for our family. Absolutely delicious!

A must try
These are the most delicious lebkucchen I have ever eaten! I have purchased them for myself and family for the past several years and the great flavor, tenderness of the crumb, freshness, and prompt customer service have always been consistent. As an added bonus, the beautiful tins are gifts in themselves! I highly recommend this product and this company.

Addicting
I ordered Lebkuchen from you for the first time for Christmas. They were outstanding! I just purchased 2 1lb mini assorted ones and they are currently enroute to Osaka, Japan. My daughter is studying there for the year and will be very happy to see them in her care package! Thank you for making a deliciously high quality product. This is going to be a new holiday tradition for me and my family.

Adorable and Delicious
I bought my sister a tin of the regular lebkuchen for the holidays, and I couldn't resist buying a little one for myself in the process because they're just so yummy. These smaller lebkuchen are still significantly larger than I expected and, of course, just as delicious as the regular-sized. (I was expecting them to be bite-sized, but they were basically the size of an average cookie.) The only difference is that the wafer on the bottoms of the smaller ones tends to be hidden by the lebkuchen and/or chocolate because they are smaller. To be fair, I've never had lebkuchen before I was gifted a tin from here, so I can't compare it to others, but they're so dense and spicy and wonderful (and some covered in chocolate!). I have a few tins from previous purchases/gifts, but this is my first small tin. I love the sort of kitschy look of this tin, and now that it's empty of lebkuchen I've been keeping chocolate candies in it because it's just so cute and the tins are well made and sturdy.

best-ever lebkuchen. period.
My dad was German and I grew up eating lebkuchen around the holidays. After he passed away I wanted to renew this tradition and was recommended by a German friend in New York to try Leckerlee. They are far and away the best I've ever had compared to the various brands my dad bought: fresh, dense and redolent with fragrant herbs and spices. Yum!

Best Lebkuchen!
While studying at a university in Germany for a year, I discovered Lebkuchen. It was my favorite German cookie. After I returned home to the U.S., I tried the some of the imported Lebkuchen sold here. I was very disappointed. I also tried making it myself, but didn't come close to the deliciousness of the Lebkuchen I ate in Germany. Leckerlee has become my source for authentic, freshly made Lebkuchen at Christmas time. It tastes just as good, if not better than the Lebkuchen I discovered in my year abroad. I look forward each year to Lebkuchen season!
