Vanilice - Linzer Cookies

Vanilice - Linzer Cookies

Vanilice - Linzer cookies are some of my favorites – simple butter cookies sandwiched with jam. I made these cookies and they turned out delicious. They are quite easy to make. I liked the cookies even better the next day as they soften a bit. These cookies were wonderful and got rave reviews from everyone who tried them.


  • 1½ cups butter softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 baking powder
  • 1 cups ground almonds
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup good-quality strawberry jam
  • Powdered sugar


Preheat oven to 180 ° C. Grease a medium baking pan.

In a large bowl, beat butter, sugar and vanilla extract with electric mixer at medium speed until creamy. Add the egg and lemon zest and mix until just combined. Add the flour, baking powder, almonds, salt, cinnamon and mix on low speed until the dough comes together in a mass. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 2 hours.

Roll the dough out to a 5 mm thickness and, using molds for cookies, cut flower or hearts. Using smaller molds for cookies, make holes in the middle of half of your flower or hearts.

Place cookies on baking sheet 2 cm apart. Bake cookies in preheated oven for 10 minutes or until cookies a light golden brown and firm. Remove from the oven and allow the cookies to cool to room temperature.

Once the cookies are cool, each whole or base cookie spread with 1 teaspoon of jam, being careful to not spread all the way to the edges of the cookie. Sift powdered sugar over the top cookie that has the hole cut out of a center. Place top cookie over the base cookie to create a sandwich.

Sprinkle top with powdered sugar.
