I absolutely love Linzer cookies! They’re one of the top cookies that I look forward to during the holidays time! I love the mixture of hazelnut and raspberry. Completely delicious! Thank you so much to the Wolfgang Puck Cooking School for submitting this recipe to me so I can share with you! Here are Maria’s Memory about these cookies:
My late mother, Maria Puck, always baked these wonderful traditional Austrian cookies for the holidays. She usually started early in December, making enough not only to give as gifts but also for my sisters, brother, and me to eat. The ground hazelnuts and raspberry jam keep the cookies moist, and the flavors only get better as the spice mixture in the dough matures.
