- 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, Andre's Basel leckerli meet the high standards you've come to expect from Leckerlee.
Available in a 12oz box (with 24 pieces).
Basler leckerli ingredients: Honey, wheat flour, sugar, almonds, orange peel, lemon peel, Kirsch (a fruit brandy made from cherries), spices, baking soda, baker's ammonia.
Storage notes: The texture of the Leckerli cookies may change in humid or dry environments.

I was really looking forward to this delivery because what I had last year was fabulous. However, the items I received were very dried out and didn’t taste fresh.
These Leckerli are magical…. They never fail to disappoint and are something I look forward to each year as a sign the holiday are coming. They are a special treat and every single member of the family loves them.
I was not as happy as I have been with the lebkuchen in past years; though the flavor was good, they seemed hard and almost stale. I also found the quantity quite small for the price.
These are amazing and taste great!
The anticipation of sharing these lovely, lovely Lebkuchen each year is sheer deliciousness and then when the box of lovely, lovely Lebkuchen actually arrives the long wait behind us -- it is pure delight! I am smiling. Thank you!
