Nuremberg-style lebkuchen is widely regarded as the finest gingerbread in the world. This gustatory heirloom has been handed down by Bavarian medieval monks and fiercely protected for centuries by lebkuchen guilds, confining its designation to the city limits of the German gingerbread capital. Until one enchanting Bavarian winter day, a crazy lebkuchen convert decided its destiny was to travel far and wide...
This earthy yet elegant spiced treat - which falls somewhere between a cookie and a cake - is now being lovingly handmade for you in NYC by Leckerlee, the only modern-day lebkuchen artisan in the New World. We went to great lengths to develop a recipe so authentic and delicious that it would make old world gingerbread masters drool. Richly-spiced, nutty, aromatic, moist and chewy – it’s the quintessential seasonal confection. If you can’t make it to a festive holiday market in Bavaria, Leckerlee will take you there. It’s perfect with coffee or tea, or to share as a gift in the eye-catching tins.
Choose from Classic (topped with 3 almonds and brushed with sugar glaze to enhance each spice) and Chocolate (enrobed in dark chocolate, a must of chocolate-lovers) varieties. Assorted if you want a bit of both (our most popular option!).
The Star Tin showcases Leckerlee's take on the seven-sided star motif frequently seen in German holiday displays.
