Ingredients

  • 2 c
    all purpose flour
  • 2 c
    almonds or hazelnuts, finely ground
  • 1/2 tsp
    cinnamon
  • 2 stick
    unsalted butter
  • 2 large
    eggs (whisked) separate
  • 8 oz
    raspberry jam (seedless)
  • 3 Tbsp
    raspberry brandy or cognac
  • 2 tsp
    powdered sugar

How to Make Linzer Torte

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F Grease a Spring form pan
  2. Combine flour, sugar, ground nuts, butter, and 1 egg to form a dough. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  3. Remove dough from refrigerator. Take 3/4 of the dough and roll it out on a floured surface. Transfer to the Spring form - make sure dough comes up about 1/2 inch up the side of the pan.
  4. Mix raspberry jam and Raspberry Brandy (or Cognac). Spread this mixture evenly into the cake bottom.
  5. Roll out remaining dough and cut into strips. Arrange strips into a criss-cross pattern on top of the cake. Break the remaining egg into a cup and whisk with a fork or whisk. Brush dough strips with egg wash.
  6. Bake cake for 40-45 minutes or until cake becomes a golden brown.

    Allow cake to rest overnight before serving - this brings the flavor out more. Before serving, dust with powdered sugar.
