Linzer Cookies

I love these cookies. The dough is great and it has a super strong hazelnut flavor. They’re like mini linzer tortes minus the frangipane. These cookies were so much fun to put together and look very good. The raspberry jam balances out the flavor of the cookies. Anything with raspberry is always great.

264g room temperature, unsalted butter
190g granulated sugar
56g eggs
4g vanilla extract

  1. Cream the butter and sugar together.
