Look What's Cookin'

Linzer Cookies

November 28th, 2011

Linzer Cookies are great for the holidays and look just as good as they taste!

These delectibles are made locally, just down the road, by Blue Wave Pastry. You can find them in the bakery case at Good to Go! or special order them for your holiday party.

About: Adapted from one of Austria's most famous desserts, the Linzer torte (named after the City of Linz), Linzer cookies are two cookies sandwiched together with a layer of raspberry preserves. The top cookie is dusted with confectioners sugar and has a cutout so the preserves are visible.

When cut into a round shape with a round cut-out they are known as Linzer Augen, or "Linzer Eyes".
