Lebkuchen Schmidt Nürnberger Lebkuchen

Lebkuchen Schmidt - Nürnberger

Lebkuchen are soft cookies. I don’t know much about them, but I know they can be absolutely delicious. Sometimes they have a lot of spice. Sometimes they have more sweetness. Sometimes they have awesome pockets of jam in the center. They all seem to have a giant communion wafer stuck to the bottoms, which feels like you’re eating a cookie off a sheet of paper.

I picked up these in a stored dedicated to Lebkuchen. I walked in and was immediately overwhelmed with all the different products, most of which seemed to focus more on the detailed tins than on the cookies themselves. I picked these because they had some guys on the package who advocated for their deliciousness.

But as it turns out, they’re not so trustworthy. The cookies were average. I think they were the sweeter variety, and I’m more interested in tracking down the spicy versions. I want a mouth full of Christmas spices, with jam. Anyone know where I should start?

    You went to the right store! At Lebkuchen Schmidt I would always go with “Elisen-Lebkuchen” which are made with at least 25% almonds. They also sell those with slight imperfections (appearance-wise not taste-wise) at a significant discount. Just ask for “Elisen-Lebkuchen-Bruch” 🙂 Maybe you can send a package to New York?
    I’m not sure though where you got the idea of a jam filling…

      I’ve HAD them with jam! They were fanTASTic! They also make little lebkuchen-like squares with jam on top. It’s the best thing ever.

      Okay, I read about the “elisen” versions. I’ll check it out this weekend.
