An ode to Pennsylvania heritage bakers and historic recipes, Shane Confectionery’s chef’s crafted a line of delectable cookies traditionally made & popularized in the Philadelphia area.
This fragrant gingerbread cookie is hand-pressed into replicas of Revolutionary War hero Christopher Ludwick’s original cookie board, held by the Museum of the American Revolution. Slightly spicy, molasses-forward with delicate interior, this glazed gingerbread cookie is a favorite among staff and visitors alike.
In 1754, German-born Christopher Ludwick arrived in Philadelphia and opened a successful bakery at Letitia Court, where he built a reputation as an American patriot and advocate for his fellow immigrant countrymen. He made invaluable contributions to American Independence during the Revolutionary War, and was appointed by General Washington as Superintendent of Bakers. 250 years later, on the same Old City block where Ludwick got his start, Shane Confectionery is still baking these traditional gingerbread cookies in his honor.

Edwin Hild –
I received a wonderful holiday box of Shane’s confections as a gift for Christmas and this Gingerbread cookie has brought me to your site. I have never had a gingerbread cookie that was memorable until I broke off a piece of one of these historic traditional cookies
that melted in my mouth. Unfortunately tonight, as I am a first time visitor to the site, they are unavailable forcing me to wait for that enjoyable pleasure in the future. I also look forward to seeing the cookie board at the Museum of the American Revolution.
