A bakery descendant of a torte developed in Linz, Austria, linzer cookies are a holiday favorite. Our raspberry-almond treats are an homage to that classic cookie, and while baking the sweets requires quite a few steps, the end result is absolutely worth the work (and the wait). You’ll make a shortbread-like dough, half of which you’ll cut into the base cookie, and half of which receive an interior cut-out. After baking, you’ll connect the two halves with a dot of raspberry jam and dusty the top with a bit of confectioners’ sugar. The finished sandwiches are as delicious as they are gorgeous.
