TWD challenge for this week was the famous Austrian treat, the linzer cookie. The addition of grounds nuts (can be either roasted nut or unroasted) and aromatic spices such as ground cinnamon and cloves makes this cookie stand out . I have used ground almonds here but any ground nut would work. The beautiful cookies are then sandwiched together with a layer of jam and lightly dusted with some confectionary sugar.
This is a great way to begin the baking season. Unsandwiched cookies will keep longer than sandwiched cookies. I prefer the crumbly texture of the unsandwiched cookie :)
This week's cookie was chosen by Noskos and the recipe can be found at Living The Life. Happy Baking everyone!
