I admit: I never tried to make Linzer Cookies before. But now I don’t understand why I waited so long before doing it! The delicious almond taste, the fine texture and the flavour of the jam will guarantee you a perfect taste experience. In this post you will find a recipe for Linzer Cookies that is not only insanely easy but makes some of the best cookies I ever tried!
What are Linzer Cookies
Linzer Cookies are a sandwiched cookie version of the famous Austrian Linzer Torte. Its name comes from the city of Linz. The cookies are originally called Linzer Augen, which means Linzer eyes. The traditional holes in the top cookie are round, made with special cutters with 3 holes. But I like more the modern variation with hearts or stars and that’s how I made mine.
