Product Description

The Basler Leckerli is a traditional hard spice biscuit originating from Basel, Switzerland. It is made of honey, almonds, candied peel, and Kirsch. "Lecker" means "delicious" in German. The name "Laeckerli" emerges only around 1720, however the popular biscuit was offered already much earlier in good "Bürgerhaeusern" during Advent time. Basler Leckerli were originally created by local spice merchants over 700 years ago and are available year-round. This cookie keeps well for weeks.

    I tried these little ginger-orange “jewels” in Europe. Terrific to be able to find this authentic product for purchase in the U.S.

    Authentic Basler Laeckerli. I've loved them since I was a child in Switzerland and am so happy I can now buy them from Swiss Favorites!


  4. Just like in my childhood 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Dec 2019

    These Leckerli are absolutely authentic, fresh and just like I remember growing up in Switzerland. I saw some comments complaining about shipping costs: try ordering them from Switzerland! The cost is so high that I was not able to get them until I found Swiss Favorites!!! They are absolutely worth the cost to get a taste from home, especially at Christmas. Thank you!


  5. A taste of home 5 Star Review

    These Leckerli are exactly the Basler Leckerlihuus treats I miss from growing up in Switzerland. Every year my family and I look forward to this Christmas treat and are never disappointed! Please: never stop making them available to us Swiss Expats! Thank you!


  6. Love the Lakerli 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Nov 2019

    Each Christmas, growing up in the 1960s, a friend from Basel, Switzerland would always send my family a tin of lakerli. When I grew up, I was unable to find any of these delicious cookies anywhere. Thank goodness for the internet that led me to you. These conveniently priced cookies now bring memories back to all my siblings when they get a package from me each year. Thank you.

  9. What a Cookie ! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Feb 2019

    Basler Lackerli are a tremendous treat to have on hand for guests.
    Wonderful slightly tangy spices and licorice flavors.
    Definitely brightens up any occasion or just the day if you are alone.


  10. Very GOOD Lackerli 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Dec 2018

    Have ordered these before and have thoroughly enjoyed them. My recipe is really close to these. The only problem is the same as what I've read on many other reviews is the very HIGH cost of shipping. Not sure why? Merry Christmas Theresa. Thank-you

    Thank you for your nice feedback, Jan. We are aware of the high shipping cost and can only state that the shipping prices are fed directly from FEDEX and UPS via an API into our website. These are not our rates. As we say on the website, smaller packages cost dis-proportionally more than larger ones. What we cannot see ourselves doing is increase the product price to a level where we can offer free shipping. We feel this would not be right, despite the fact that it is a widespread practice with online shops. We hope you understand and thank you for your order. Walter
