Linzer cookies are synonymous with Christmas for me! The combination of the almond flavor in the cookies with the sweet jam in the middle is just incredible.
These cookies are a bit difficult to make at first, but after a few attempts they get to be relatively straight-forward to make.
This recipe is inspired by this Linzer Cookie video on YouTube.
You need a set of Linzer cookie cutters for this recipe.
The cookies can be filled with any jam flavor that you like, but I would recommend strawberry and apricot.
Some Linzer cookie recipes use almond extract, but I highly recommend NOT using it, as it is overpowering.
