Luxembürgerli are luscious, bento-worthy cookies made by Sprüngli, a chocolatier / pastier in Switzerland.
They're like little macaroons (the European version, not the American cookie made with coconut)--little cookies sandwiching buttercream or chocolate ganache in the middle.
Flavors included chocolate and bourbon vanilla, but also champagne, salted caramel, hazelnut, mandarin, and absinthe.
The cookie is as light and melts away in your mouth with rich, sweet flavor.
They're heavenly...with a price to match. Sold by weight, the tiny little delights wind up being nearly 1 CHF each. But as a decadent once-in-a-while delight, why not?
