  • Sift the flour into a bowl and cut in the butter or margarine. Mix in the sugar and almonds. Using a fork, mix in the egg until dough becomes stiff.

  • Knead dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth. Roll out dough into a thin layer and cut into rounds, 2 inches wide. Re-roll trimmings and cut until you have 20 rounds. Place rounds on cookie sheets.

  • Bake for 12 minutes in the preheated oven, or until light brown. Let cool on the sheet for about 3 minutes, then transfer to wire racks.

  • When biscuits are completely cold, spread half of the rounds with a thin layer of preserves and sandwich together. Dust with confectioners' sugar.

I was very disappointed with this recipe. The cookies have a taste an texture like sawdust. They are too dry and are flavourless. I will not be putting these on my Christmas cookie tray. Read More

These were nice little cookie sandwiches but nothing really special. Maybe I just didn't make them right. I doubled the recipe and ended up with about 32 rounds instead of 40. I used splenda instead of white sugar and I didn't have any almonds so I just added a little almond and vanilla essence to the eggs before combining them with the flour mixture. Read More

The finished product was perfect. Mini linzer tarts. My husband couldn't believe that I made them fortunately he came home just as I was pulling them out of the oven so he knows it's true! I was worried after adding the egg that I did something wrong and kept re-reading the recipe as the "dough" was so flaky and wasn't holding together. I just kept at it and ended up using my hands to push it all together. It took a good 10 minutes of continuous kneading to get it right. Next time I will use just less than 1 cup of flour to see if that helps. Very simply ingredients. This recipe just produces 10 finished cookies so it was a good test run. Next time I will double/triple the ingredients to get a good batch - especially with the holidays coming up. Read More

Really delicate tasty cookies. Only makes ten per batch and they cook fast I had to bump it from 12 minutes to 9. Excellent with blueberry peach jam! Read More
