Linzer Cookies - A German Classic
The Linzer Cookies have become my absolute favorite cookies. They are so tender and absolutely fruity-sweet thanks to the jam.
A tempting baking challenge
Do you know what? This recipe was the biggest challenge for me since I started my blog!
No, not because the Linzer Cookies are so difficult to bake, absolutely not! And no, I didn’t have to try them twice or three times until they finally worked out! Quite the opposite, for me they’re easy and quick to make.
The scent of the fine spices and the fruity plum and cherry jam I used was just so tempting! My mouth was literally watering. To make matters worse, I had just made myself some fresh coffee! My thoughts were just about how great it would taste now, my favorite cookies with the coffee!
But in the end, I made it and almost all of the Linzer cookies survived! And even a few made it onto the pictures 🙂
Please share and tag photos of your Linzer cookies. I would love to see how you managed your challenge.
Let the dough chill in the fridge, because this allows it to soak through and it is not too soft when rolled out and cut out later.
Let the cookies cool down after baking, to avoid them break easily during assembly.
If you like jam as much as I do, you can fill the hole on the cookie with jam afterward. It also looks even nicer!
You can also sprinkle the cookies with the hole first with powdered sugar before you place them on top of the other cookies.
