Limited Edition Recipe
Dating back to the 15th century, these cookies originally took the form of a pie-like tart featuring a butter almond flour latticework crust and black currant filling. Although it’s certainly a delicious end to any meal, bakers in Linz, Austria thought of an easier and more accessible way to showcase them in their shops around the holidays—as cookies.
Using the same type of dough, Linzer cookies are cut into various shapes like stars, circles, and hearts. They’re baked and then assembled sandwich-style with a berry-based jam (although some people like to use chocolate hazelnut filling too). Finished with a dusting of powdered sugar, they’re a fabulous post-meal treat made for sharing.
