The Basler Läckerli (also Leckerli or Läggerli, lecker meaning "delicious" in German and -li being a diminutive suffix) is a traditional hard spice biscuit originating from Basel, Switzerland. It is made of honey, hazelnuts, almonds, candied peel, and Kirsch. The flat baked dough is, when still hot, topped with a sugar glaze and cut into rectangular pieces.
Basler Läckerli were originally created by local spice merchants over 700 years ago and are available year-round.
