I’m sure you’ve seen these cookies inside a tin box at many holiday parties but have you ever tried making one? Well, it was my first time making them and let me tell you, I’m in love with these cookies. Not only are they so easy to make but they are fully customizable AND make great gifts for whatever occasions! Linzer cookies as they are called are the true ‘jewels’ of the cookie world!

I’ve seen these beautiful jam cookies everywhere -at friend’s wedding, at many luxury high tea events at hotels, at various Christmas parties, even at various gourmet supermarkets but I never thought of making them until now. Why? mostly because these cookies looked very complicated to make plus I didn’t have cookie stamps (excuses!) but I was so happy to find out I was wrong! How easy it was to make them! the best part? you can make them into whatever shapes you want and fill them with ANYTHING you like – are you a fan of peanut butter or chocolate ? – go right ahead! I love cookies I can get creative with, don’t you agree? 🙂
Shall we bake them together? C’mon don’t be lazy, it only takes less than 30 minutues plus they make great birthday gifts (instead of buying expensive gifts, why not save some money and make something from scratch for your friends/loved ones, I’m sure they will be so happy to receive them)
Making of Linzer Cookies
roll out the cookie batter into thin sheet (2-3mm)
bake till the back side of cookie is slightly golden brown
use jam as glue to sandwich the two cookies!
fill each cookie with a fruit jam of your choice!recipe adapted from Maman Gateau
Linzer cookies the ‘jewels’ of cookies 🙂
Musichef Tip #1When filling the cookies with jam, I find it easier if you put the jam inside a small disposable plastic bag (like ziplock bag) with a tip cut off then pipe each one out.
Musichef Tip #2 After step 4 or 5, you can freeze this batter up to a month.
Linzer cookies make great gift (make sure you cover the center jam part with a plastic cake sheet or parchment paper before wrapping)
