Desserts in Switzerland all start, as they should, with local chocolate. Whether it's served simply with nibbles of raisins and nuts, or melted into fondue, chocolate makes every Swiss dessert rich and memorable.
In Switzerland, baking cookies from dough made with honey makes for chewier cookies that using sugar alone. Thoroughly mix the well-spiced dough until it forms a ball and is no longer crumbly. Leckerli (LEH-kehr-lee) are traditionally pressed in molds; in this recipe the dough is cut in strips.
