February 15, 2010 - 3:55 pm crumb {a bakery} - Hi, Hollis! I had never heard of Luxemburgerlis before, so I've done a little research and have learned that these are in fact the same treats. Here's an excerpt from the Spr√ľngli Web site: "One fine day in Zurich, towards the end of the 1950s, a young confectioner from Luxembourg started producing the speciality of his mentor at home. Initially, the product was anything but a top seller. The macaroons were sold, but without much enthusiasm. More out of embarrassment than anything else, the delicate biscuits were christened 'Luxemburgerli' after their place of origin, a name, incidentally, that is not used in Luxembourg itself. Because it takes time and effort to make them by hand in a process requiring a very deft touch, the new speciality was by no means pushed, and when the young confectioner returned home it proved very difficult to find a worthy successor. Over the years, however, the citizens of Zurich slowly acquired a taste for Luxemburgerli." :)
