How to Make Linzer Torte

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 350°F Grease a Spring form pan
  • 2Combine flour, sugar, ground nuts, butter, and 1 egg to form a dough. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • 3Remove 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.
  • 4Mix raspberry jam and Raspberry Brandy (or Cognac). Spread this mixture evenly into the cake bottom.
  • 5Roll 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.
  • 6Bake 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.
