Basler Läckerli are a sweet staple in the region. These spicy biscuits that have a very unique taste are flavored with honey, nuts (almonds and hazelnuts), Kirsch (cherry liquor) and candied orange and lemon peels. The top of each biscuit is covered in a sugary glaze that make these small treats a delight year-round. Enjoy with a cup of warm tea during the autumn months and you might just have the perfect snack.
Dating back to the 17th century, these sweets treats first appeared in cookbooks. The Läckerli Huus dates back to 1904. Today, the company not only makes the delicious biscuits, but has expanded their collection to include chocolates, caramels, among other sweet delights.
