Lebkuchen

Lebkuchen

Cookies that make you want to sing, that’s what these are. Trader Joe's Lebkuchen are just the cookies to have on hand for this singing experience. These are made for us by a German bakery in Nuremberg, where this type of cookie has been made for more than 600 years. The soft gingerbread biscuits are made with a flavorful assortment of ingredients like hazelnuts, almonds, walnuts, candied orange peel, and a crazy number of spices (aniseed, ginger, coriander, cloves, pimento, mace, cardamom, and cinnamon). Then, the biscuits are baked on top of very thin wafer cookies – this is the Oblaten, the hallmark of Lebkuchen – and coated with chocolate or sugar glaze to add a sweet finish to the spicy, aromatic cookies. According to German tradition, Lebkuchen cookies must have a minimum of 12.5% nuts; this recipe more than meets that requirement with 25%! Three cheers for nuttiness.

We’re selling Lebkuchen in both Sugar Iced and Chocolate Covered varieties. Each comes in a 7.05 ounce package for $2.49, while they last.
