Wicklein has been perfecting their recipes since 1615, making some of the greatest treats in the world. These delicious stars come from Neuremburg, Germany where they have been made since the 16th century. Historically, monks refined gingerbread and added cinnamon for a unique flavor, which was expensive at the time. So, these cookies were normally only found on the tables of noblemen. Today, however, these wonderful treats are made according to the same tradition with 40% nuts but are accessible to everyone.
