TWD: Linzer Sablés

Did you come here looking for the Buttery Jam Cookies (chosen by Heather of Randomosity and the Girl). I am just all turned around this month and am just now getting around to the Linzer Sablés (chosen by noskos of Living the Life) that most everyone else posted a couple of weeks ago. If you want to read about my jam cookies pictured above, then go here (in short, we loved them and went with Dorie’s original recipe).

The Linzer’s were fun to make and easier than I thought they might be. They are, of course, more time consuming than the buttery jam cookies, but they are both delicious. I plan to make another batch of Linzer’s later this week to take to a holiday party.

I ended up taking most of the Linzer’s to my Sister-in-Law and she loved them. They became more tender once they had sat overnight with the jam in them which was when I liked them better. The only change I made in the recipe was to sub half of the white sugar with brown sugar which gave the cookies a little darker appearance. I used walnuts in the dough and filled the cookies with some good seedless red raspberry jam and did the powdered sugar on top on some.

You linzers look really fabulous! I am yet to even try making them, but with your glowing review, maybe I’ll just have to do it!

I like the idea that they become more tender as they sit with jam… That’s always better in my book! 🙂

they look wonderful! 🙂 i didn’t get to taste mine the next day, but it’s good to know that they get a little softer, because the jam squirted out of mine a little too much the day of 😉
