Shelf life: we suggest eating our lebkuchen within a few weeks for optimal texture and taste, but as long as you store it in an airtight container and in a cool, dry place, you can continue to enjoy your lebkuchen for many months. Just keep in mind that it will lose moisture over time. You can try to revive lebkuchen that has lost some moisture by placing a piece of sliced apple inside the container for a day or two and then removing it.
The lebkuchen were fantastic! My only gripe was that they each had paper attached to the bottom of each cookie. Otherwise, the flavor was amazing and rich! Definitely will try again, but please leave off the paper!!
Hi Joanne, thank you for your kind review. The white wafer (known as a 'Backoblate' in German) on the bottom of each cookie is a traditional component of the lebkuchen and is actually edible! It has roots in the communion wafer, as lebkuchen was invented by Franconian monks in the Middle Ages. Sorry for any confusion!
We tried these lebkuchen for the first time this year and enjoyed them so much we sent them to our out of state aunt and uncle as a Christmas gift. The package traveled from Colorado to Louisiana in three days! We got an immediate rave review back! They love the combination of spices the soft texture and the incredible freshness. They want to visit the Leckerlee factory when they come see us!
