Whenever I go to the store, a pack of Linzer cookies finds its way into my shopping basket. I like simple cookies – especially if they contain jam! This time, I decided to use raspberry jam for a change, but you can use any jam you have at home, as long as it is thick enough. Baked cookies are normally brittle, but when filled with jam, they turn like store-bought: soft and delicious - my favorite!

They can be accompanied by American cookies according to the recipe here.

Makes: 45 cookies.

  • Ingredients for Linzer cookies

    • 350 g all purpose flour
    • 150 g finely ground almonds
    • 250 g cold butter
    • 140 g granulated sugar
    • lemon zest
    • 2 eggs (medium-sized)
    • 7 g baking powder
    • raspberry jam
    • icing sugar
  • Preparation

    • Cube the butter and quickly blend it in a food processor with 150 g flour. Place in a large bowl and add the remaining flour, baking powder, almonds, lemon zest and sugar. Stir with a whisk, add eggs and quickly knead the mixture into a dough using your hands. Shape into a disc and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least an hour.
    • Preheat oven to 180 °C (350 °F). Take half of the dough out of the refrigerator and roll it out 3-4 mm thick on a floured countertop. Using cookie cutters, cut out desired shapes and place the dough on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Bake for approximately 8 minutes. Using a palette knife, transfer the baked cookies to a cooling rack and allow to cool completely.
    • Sandwich the cooled cookies together with jam and dust with powdered sugar.

Urška Jerman, who creates under the name Cake O'Clock, has been accompanied and inspired by desserts since she was a child. I was inspired to make them by my mother – I would always observe with fascination while she was preparing food, thrilled whenever I got to participate in the process. My father would show his support by enthusiastically tasting what I made and buying children’s cookbooks that he has kept with great care to this day. These books led me to making a mess in the kitchen on my own, an endeavor that has, over the years, become my career that I love and enjoy.
