List of ingredients:
- 80 grams of sugar
- 200 grams of butter (Room temperature)
- 300 grams of flour
- Pinch of salt
- Lemon peel
- Vanilla sugar
- 250 grams of jam
We start off by mixing 200 grams of butter.
After thats mixed well we add the sugar.
And the vanilla sugar.
Next we add 300 grams of flour. Be carefull not to put all of it in at once or the mixer might not mix it as good as we’d like it to.
Now we continue mixing it until it lookis a little something like this.
Now we take it out of the mixer and start mixing it by hand and try to form some sort of a ball. We knead it until it gets a dough like texture.
Now we jsut put it back in the mixer for a couple of turns and after it looks like this it is ready to go in the fridge. I suggest putting it in some sort of foil so it doesn’t stick to the fridge.
Now we let it rest for about half an hour.
After 30 minutes we get our workplace ready. We do that by putting cleaning it and putting flour on it.
Now we can continue with the next step which is to roll out the dough.
Now we grab a cookie cutter and start making circles out of our rolled out dough.
In some circles cut out a heart like shape so our cookies
Now we put them in the oven that was preheated to 200°C (392 Fahrenheit) for 8 minutes until they become golden brown color.
Now we take a circle cookie that doesn’t have a heart cut out and spread some jam on top of it.
As for the cookie with the heart cut out we just simply put some powdereded sugar on top of it.
The last thing we have to do is to put the cookie with the heart cut out on top of the cookie without the heart cut out.
And that’s how you make Linzer cookies.
Pro Tip: Make the cookies right after they come out of the oven so they glue to one another.
