Linzer Cookies

Updated: Mar 16

The origin of Linzer Cookies is Linz, Austria.  Located in north-central part of the country, it’s Austria’s 3rd largest city. Linzer cookies employ the same recipe as the Linzertorte but instead the dough is cut into cookies and two of them form a sandwich around the preserves.  Moreover, the top cookie has a small cutout in its center (known as Linzer eyes), thus exposing the underlying jam and adding to the visual appeal.  While the traditional cutout is circular, all sorts of shapes, such as hearts, are also popular.
