From Gourmet magazine, December 1994. When I was growing up, my grandma's sister would send us a tin of Basler Lackerli every year for Christmas. I loved those cookies so much and haven't forgotten the taste. I picked up a few issues of Gourmet magazine at a library sale. Imagine my surprise when I came across this recipe. I even made my own candied orange peel. Although this isn't the exact recipe I remember, it is pretty close, and I hope to surprise, and delight, a few people at Christmas this year.
