For this weeks Tuesday’s With Dorie Noskos of Living the Life chose Linzer Sables on pages 134-135.
I finally got a chance to use the special cookie cutters I bought in Switzerland back in July made just for this purpose. I left the dough in the plastic bag so I could pop it back in the fridge as needed but thankfully this dough behaved in the heat fairly well.
I used walnuts in the dough. (They were the nuts that most needed to be turned over). I broke them up in the food processor first and then finished them off with the flour to get them nice and fine but to prevent them getting oily and turning into nut butter.
These are quite nice. The cinnamon and touch of cloves does give a classic recipe a lift and in fact brightened up the walnut which could be overwhelming. I used my Bonne Maman Strawberry Jam -who could resist using a product that reminded you that you were a good mother!
Now go and check out all the Linzer Sables from the TWD crew.
