Inspired by traditional German sweets, Sweet & Salzig handcrafts their Honey Lebkuchen in Brooklyn according to a classic recipe. These flaky, buttery cookies are infused with almond and brandy, giving them a rich nuttiness that’s accented by bright, warm citrus and spice - cinnamon, star anise, lemon and orange peel. Spice up your next holiday party by serving these with Mitica Moka Pecans and a handful of Murray’s Marcona Almonds.
