One of the many things I’ve liked about baking from Dorie’s Cookies is finding out about cookies from far off places. I haven’t gone anywhere in ages, but I can still explore the sweets of the world. Here, we have Leckerli, a spice cookie from Switzerland. With plenty of mixed spice, candied orange peel, honey, almonds and kirsch, the dough is made, rolled into a slab and rested for up to two days before baking to “age” the flavors. Then it’s baked, glazed (more kirsch!) and cut into tiles. They might look like firm, crisp cookies, but they are actually dense and chewy, and while they do have those holiday vibes, I’d be happy to have them in the cookie tin anytime of year.

For the recipe, see Dorie’s Cookies by Dorie Greenspan. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the TWD Blogroll!

  1. Oh traveling…how I miss you! Haha. You are right though…we did travel and I am with you, I would be happy to eat these anytime of year. I like how your glaze turned out. Mine wasn’t really visible…more like it soaked in 🤷‍♀️

  2. These really are so good – surprisingly so for me! I’ll make them again!

  3. These look really wonderful…such a nice photo, as always. I like the idea of traveling through cookies. Not sure I’m going to make this one. I think the part of the candied orange peel has my stymied.
