These gingerbread cookies are pressed into replicas of Revolutionary War hero Christopher Ludwick’s original cookie board, held by the Museum of the American Revolution. *You will receive one of the cookies pictured above, depending on availability and at the discretion of the kitchen.* Choose either a traditional German gingerbread cookie or a vegan gingerbread cookie.
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.
