How to Make Yuletide Raspberry Almond Linzer Bars

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Grease metal 13x9 pan. Or line pan with foil and grease foil for easy removal and cutting. In mixer bowl, beat butter and sugar til creamy. Beat in egg and grated lemon zest til blended. Mix in flour, almonds and cinnamon til well blended.
  2. Press 2 cups prepared dough onto bottom of pan. Spread preserves over crust. I dollop it and then spread with my offset knife. Press remaining dough, little amounts at a time, evenly over top. Bake 35-40 minutes til golden brown. Don't overbake, though, or it will be dry. Cool in pan on wire rack. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Cut into bars or small squares.
