How to Make Linzer Sandwich Rings


  • 1In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter with an electric mixer on medium-high speed for 30 seconds.
  • 2Add the brown sugar, baking powder, lemon peel, cinnamon, all spice, and salt and beat till combined.
  • 3Beat in the egg yolks and vanilla.
  • 4Beat in any remaining flour and ground walnuts with a wooden spoon.
  • 5Divide dough in half. Cover and chill for 1 hour or till dough is easy to handle.
  • 6. On a lightly floured surface, roll each half of dough to a 1/8” thickness. Using a cookie cutter, cut out dough. Place 1” apart on ungreased baking sheets. Using a small cutter, cut out the centers of half the unbaked cookies. Remove the centers and reroll dough.
  • 7Bake cookies in a preheated 375* oven for 7-9 minutes, or until edges are firm and bottoms are browned. Remove cookies with a spatula and cool on a rack.
  • 8To assemble cookie sandwiches sift confectioners’ sugar over the tops of the cookies with cutouts in center. Set aside. Spread about ½ tsp. of the jam onto the bottom of each cookie without the cutout; top with a cutout cookie, confectioners’ sugar side up.
