As I shared with you last Friday – I am a chocoholic. So Valentines is a popular holiday at my house. But here’s a recipe for those of you who like other flavors. Linzer Cookies are a classic sandwich cookie with a ‘window’ in the top cookie – filled with yummy spreads and jams. Since it’s Valentines, I decided to make heart shaped cookies…. and although I was tempted to use nutella, I decided to use F.R.O.G. (Fig, Raspberry, Orange, Ginger) Jam, from nearby Jaemor Farms, for the filling. The deep red color was perfect for Valentines and the taste is delicious!
This is a, slightly tweaked, recipe from the King Arthur Flour website. I must say though, their recipe says it makes 5 dozen sandwiched cookies. I must have made ginormeous cookies, because I only got 2 dozen cookies from one batch. So if you want a large amount of cookies, be sure to really roll out the dough to 1/8 inch (Yes, mine were a little thicker.) and don’t make too large a cookie (is there such a thing?!)
Here they are on the platter I took to share with friends.
and just a few on a plate would be a welcomed gift.
Since Valentines is on a Saturday this year, this would make a fun activity with the kids, especially if you’re cooped up in Snowmagedan #3 (or is it 4!!)
Happy Valentine’s Y’all !!
