Valentine’s day is almost here and her I am with another fantastic dessert for valentine’s day.These buttery cookies won’t just melt in your mouth they are sure to melt hearts.You need very few ingredients and not a lot of skills for this one. Just don’t be tempted to over-mix or over-bake and you’ll do just fine.Linzer cookies are popular during Christmas due to their bright red centre but somehow the heart shape and jam filled centre makes them so perfect for Valentine’s Day.
Linzer cookies originated in the City of Linz, Austria in the early 1700s. Traditionally this torte consisted of a crust made with flour, ground nuts (traditionally almonds), sugar, egg yolks, spices and lemon zest that was filled with black currant preserves and then topped with a lattice crust.
Carefully transfer parchment paper lined baking sheets to a cooking rack, using a spatula under cookies to help lift them if needed. Also, chill dough that’s not currently being rolled or baked, the hearts hold their shape better when cold.I repeat again, don’t be tempted to over-bake or over-mix. The cookies tend to harden after they are baked so let them sit.To avoid mushy cookies always store the cookies in a airtight container in a moisture free cool dry space.
