Christmas is coming
Christmas is coming, and Linzer cookies are a must on our Christmas table.
They are so simple and easy to prepare, and sooo delicious!
I always use this grandmas recipe, that she took from her century old cook book. 😉 And it’s perfect!
This is a basic recipe, but you can modify dough to your own taste, like adding some nuts to dough, or use your favourite jam.
12 dag butter
12 dag granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
30 dag plain flour
pinch of salt
powdered sugar (for sprinkling)
Stir well softened butter with sugar, until you get creamy mixture
Gradually add the egg and vanilla extract, sifted flour and salt, and stir well all together
Wrap the dough with foil and put in the fridge to rest a couple of hours
Cut the dough in half, and each half knead well
Now you can cut various shapes
Bake at 170 C about 13 min
Leave to cool a little
Lower part fill with jam, and paste them on the upper part, which we have previously sprinkled with powdered sugar
