The freshest, most delicious lebkuchen available outside Germany (and many say inside too), Leckerlee Lebkuchen are the real deal. We use a proprietary cold-ground 9-spice blend & a batter recipe comprised of 40 percent almonds & hazelnuts (true to Nuremberg-style lebkuchen). The gingerbread essence, rich flavor and cake-like, chewy texture are unmatched. Produced in small batches using premium ingredients, Leckerlee Lebkuchen are an artisanal treat that embodies the classic flavor of the holidays. Our season is short, so get it while you can!
My mother is German and we spent a great deal of time in Germany growing up. These remind me of my childhood. So good!
There are many recipes for Lebkuchen, and this one makes excellent ones. They're not quite the same as from my childhood or as we make them at home . . . . but we don't have to make them and they are soooooooooo good!
I saw an ad for Leckerlee after the holidays, and wanted to give them a try. The price seemed a bit steep, but once I received the beautifully packaged lebkuchen, and got the whiff of fresh spices when I opened the cookie tin, and had the first divine bite, I have to say it was absolutely worth it! Better than any of the mass-produced variety that you find at Christmas markets and gourmet shops - you would have to have a connection to an excellent home cook in Germany to get more authentic than this. I look forward to purchasing Leckerlee for this coming holiday season - for gifts and for me!
Leckerlee cookies are amazing. Thank you, Sandy, for this wonderful product and for the outstanding customer service. I'll be ordering again.
This was my second order this holiday season. I love gingerbread so I ordered the first one. It was so delicious. I had a cookie everyday with tea as a reward for doing all that work preparing for the Holidays!! A friend saw the adorable tin they came in and so wanted one. I placed another order. This will be a new tradition for me!!! Thank you - so tasty.
My husband absolutely loved your treats that I gave him for Christmas. Thank you!
Thanks for sending the notice requesting feedback. We enjoyed the Lebkuchen and the especially creative packaging. My family hosts friends from Germany in December each year. For the past two years, we have ordered lebkuchen from Leckerlee - the first year from Whole Foods in Venice , California and the second year via your company website.
The lebkuchen were delicious. We can tell that you place a lot of care into the baking and shipping of your product.
I rated the experience with 4 stars instead of 5 stars only because our order for two of the three shipments was incorrect. We ordered a combination of regular and chocolate lebkuchen, and the order arrived with only one container containing the combined order. The other two containers contained only the standard gingerbread flavor.
It was not a huge deal, but I thought I would mention this as the reason for the slightly lower rating. We enjoyed the lebkuchen nonetheless.
I wish your company continued success. viel Spass!
This is the best lebkuchen ever! The tins are adorable, the service is professional and fast. I send these to family and clients every holiday season and everyone loves them. And of course I get them for myself, too.
The chocolate coated cookies were very moist. Next year, I will send some as gifts. I
appreciate the history which brought the family to NYC.

These are the best lebkuchen I've tasted since moving back to the US. I buy imported lebkuchen from Nürnberg every year, but they are usually stale by the time we eat them. Your lebkuchen were moist and flavorful. If I closed my eyes, I could imagine I was back among the stalls at the market, buying ornaments and enjoying the sights, sounds, and aromas of the season. All I needed was a mug of glühwein. Vielen dank!
All the families who received these delicious cookies have loved them and look forward to getting them again next year. It is a great pleasure to give them for this reason, and because Sandy has created a flawless website that makes the whole process so easy.

I bought lebkuchen for my son who has a PHD in German language/lit and has traveled and spent many months in Germany. He told me he had something similar to these there but nothing compared to the 'grandma like homemade' texture of these cookies. Thoroughly enjoyed by a foodie and will be our new traditional gift to give!
Soft and chewy, with a hint of orange and warm spices. Perfect German cookies :)
We found Leckerlee tins at our local Whole Foods last year, we've heard the story but never got the chance to try. We enjoyed the cookies so much we gave them out to friends and teachers. It was a big hit! We decided to give them to our clients (grocers) this year and the concierge service has been a blessing. We've received only positive comments from our hard-to-gift clients. Thank you so much!
... and they both loved it! One is German and it reminded her of her childhood.
These cookies are so rich and wonderful. Sent them to several family members in their lovely tins, all dressed up for the holiday. Naturally had to get some for us and have been enjoying one (mini) every day for the last two weeks! Amazing with espresso. I look forward to it every afternoon. Keep on baking, Leckerlee!

I gave these as a present to my German in laws that grew up with these cookies. They thought they were delicious and better than they remembered! I will send them a ton every Christian they loved them!
The tins are beautifully made, and a treat in themselves, as we sit down to a cup of coffee and take a lebkuchen out. A treat particular to Christmas is extra special these days when we have access to so much throughout the year.
These Lebkuchen are fresh, tender, and perfectly spiced. I have not had anything comparable in the US. They're perfect, and I intend to order more every Christmas to come!

I lived in Germany for 7 years and became a big fan of German Lebkuchen. From texture to taste, Leckerlee lebkuchen are by far the most genuine lebkuchen I've come across since moving back to the US. I recommend them to all my german friends living here. Thank you Leckerlee!
When I could no longer get them in person in Philadelphia, I ordered them online. Cookies arrived in perfect condition and the tin is adorable. Shop owner even corrected my shipping zip code when I didn't realize I had accidentally entered a typo. Can't wait to order more!!
My partner grew up in Germany (army brat) and since leaving has hankered for the spicey, not too sweet, chocolate covered lebkuchen he enjoyed every Christmas of his youth, but never found their equal. That is, not until I discovered Leckerlee! Opening the tin he said, "that's the right smell" and after one bite had the gleeful glint of a child who received exactly what he wished for from Santa. Thank you, thank you--you've customers for life!

The cookies are delicious and taste like Christmas!! I love displaying the beautiful tins as well. A great gift to give. Highly recommend!
As an American of German ancestry, lebkuchen is a important Christmas tradition for me. But, REAL lebkuchen is very hard to find in the US. Leckerlee's lebkuchen is absolutely amazing, and truly authentic Nuremburger lebkuchen! Love the little bits of candied ginger! Fröhliche weihnachten!
These are the most amazing cookies ever. I bought several beautiful tins of these cookies to give as Christmas gifts (yeah, I kept a couple for myself). They should be available all year round THEY ARE THAT GOOD.
I always love them. I always savor them for a long time.
I got them for my Mother, who told me they were everything she remembered from her childhood.
I came across this delicious cookie a few years back. And now I order several pounds every year to ensure I have lebkuchen to enjoy with my friends and family around the holidays (and if I'm lucky into the start of spring).
I've been purchasing Leckerlee for two years now.
When I open that tin can it takes me back to the time when we still had our Oma with us, the smell of those spices reminds me of her house every Advent. The taste is just incredible and it makes me happy to be able to remember her enjoying these lebkuchen. Thank you so much for reviving those memories with Lecklerlee's Lebkuchen. Frohe Feiertage!!
This will be the third year I've ordered after finding out about these delicious lebkuchen. I get the mini ones, and they are perfect with a cup of tea or coffee. Or just on their own!

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!
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!
YOUR product is so so delicious. I have been ordering ever since I read about your cookies in a Martha Stewart magazine. Love the taste and texture. The tins are collectables . 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.
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.
I ordered this tin for myself at the start of the Christmas season. I've started collecting the tins and look forward to placing my order every year! Loved the tin design and the lebkuchen was delicious as always. Perfect blend of spices and chock full of nuts. These went so fast I was forced to order more! HA
Best lebkuchen this side of the Atlantic. To be honest better than a lot of the mass-produced lebkuchen you buy in 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!
These are super delicious treats and make an easy gift choice for even discerning dessert lovers.
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!
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.
I have purchased from Leckerlee for a couple of years. What a great find! 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!" My German relatives give these cookies the stamp of approval! Also, I have found that working with Sandy and the Leckerlee staff to be so easy and positive; they are very conscientious, organized, caring!
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.
These are my favorite holiday treats, and the tins are always beautiful.
We love leckerlee! I gifted several tins this year and also purchased one for our family. Absolutely delicious!
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.
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.
A wonderful reminder of a childhood spent in Germany. This is the second year I've purchased lebkuchen from Leckerlee. It won't be the last. The cookies are delicious, and the decorative tins are fun.
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.
Leckerlee Lebkuchen is probably the best Lebkuchen I've ever had, even after living in Germany. The Lebkuchen are full of high quality ingredients with a high ratio of nuts. Dense, spicy and satisfying, I've even eaten them for breakfast! And the tins are beautiful - I put them out for display in our kitchen during the holidays, and they make perfect gifts.
If only the Lebkuchen were available year-round!
