Delicious Linzer Cookies

Makes 2 dozen cookies. 


1 1/2 c. almond flour

1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour

1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon

1/4 tsp. ground cloves

1/4 tsp. kosher salt

1 large egg

2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

1/2 c. (1 stick) butter

1/2 c. granulated sugar

1/2 c. raspberry jam

2 tbsp. powdered sugar, for garnish




  • In a medium bowl, whisk together almond flour, all-purpose flour, cinnamon, cloves, and salt. In a small bowl, whisk together egg and vanilla.
  • In a large bowl, using a hand mixer, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 3 to 4 minutes. Add egg mixture and beat until combined. Add dry ingredients and beat until just incorporated.
  • Divide dough in half, form each half into a disk and place each between 2 large sheets of parchment paper. Using a rolling pin, roll each piece of dough to 1/8″ in thickness. Place dough sheets on a baking sheet or cutting board and transfer to the refrigerator to chill for 2 hours. (Or place in the freezer for 30 minutes.)
  • Preheat the oven to 375° and line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper. Peel away one layer of parchment paper from your dough and use a 2″ round cookie cutter to cut out cookies. Use a smaller round cookie cutter to cut windows in half the cookies, if desired.
  • Place cookies on a baking sheet about 1″ apart. Bake for 7 to 9 minutes, or until cookies are lightly golden. Let cool.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, stir 1 teaspoon of water into jam. Microwave on low for 30 seconds, then spread about 1/2 tsp of jam in the center of a cookie, then top with a second cookie. Dust with powdered sugar and serve!
