From Wikipedia: “Luxemburgerli (also Luxembourger) is a brand name of confectionery made by the Confiserie Sprüngli in ZürichSwitzerland. Essentially a small macaron, they have a top and bottom sugar-based confection with a center cream filling. The Luxemburgerli is lighter than a macaron and is about 1 inch (2.5 cm) in diameter”

These are baby macarons that’s famous in Zurich and there are many outlets where you can get them. I think the actual one is slightly smaller than 1 inch in diameter. They are thicker, less moist, firmer and slightly crunchier compared to Pierre Herme’s, Laduree’s and general ones you get in Singapore. Reminds me a little bit of cream sugar biscuits?Different texture and experience from the usual macarons we are exposed to. Love the sheen on the gold ones, which contains champagne!
