Linzer Cookies

Linzer cookies are possibly the easiest type of cookie to make. And they're definitely up there on the taste scale too. Two layers of buttery goodness sandwiched together with a layer of jam. It really doesn't get any better than that. 

Linzer Cookies

Yield: 72 individual cookies and 36 sandwiches

Print Friendly and PDF


2 sticks of butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
a pinch of vanilla(powdered kind)
3 cups of all purpose flour
3/4 cup of cornstarch + 1/4 cup of all-purpose flour
your choice of fruit preserves/jam


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a small bowl, using a hand mixer, cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla, and mix well.

In another small bowl, mix together flour and cornstarch. Add these dry ingredients gradually and continue to mix until the mixture gets pretty thick. At this point, you'll want to use your hands to mix the rest of the flour/cornstarch in. Knead gently until everything is incorporated and you form a soft dough. 

Use your preferred cookie cutter shapes to cut out top and bottom layers.

Bake for 9-10 minutes, or until their bottoms are slightly golden. You will notice the bottom edges of the cookies starting to brown and that's your cue to take them out.

Spread a thin layer of your preferred jam on the bottom part of the cookie, key word THIN, because if you put too much it will leak out the sides when you press on the top part of the cookie.

You need a thin layer of jam so that the cookies stick together, and then once they're stuck, you can pour some jam through the hole to make them pretty.

  7. And also, one more thing, if you could say something like, "Recipes yield approx. __ cookies."
