I just love Christmas time. Sitting in a cozy spot, cookies, hot punch and a good book….heaven!! This is a typical Austrian specialty.
LINZER AUGEN COOKIES
100 g confectioner’s sugar
200 g butter, cold
300 g flour
1 Tbsp vanilla sugar
Ground peel of ½ organic lemon
Confectioner’s sugar to sprinkle
Knead together all ingredients. Cool for 30 minutes. Roll out between two baking paper sheets. With a cookie cutter cut out disks. Cut out a smaller disk out of half of the disks (makes the top layer). Bake for 10 minutes. Spread jam on the still hot full disks and top with upper layer disks. Let cool and sprinkle with confectioner’s sugar.
