I made some Valentine Linzer cookies over the weekend. And I have finally been able to sit down and post this fun and easy recipe!
I have always thought that these cookies looked complicated. But they were very easy to make.
I bought this Linzer cookie kit at Michael's for about $5.00 (use a coupon for 40% off). It comes with a heart cutout, circle, star, spade and triangle.
The kit tells you how to make the cookies - it actually gives you a sugar cookie recipe - but I used my sugar cookie recipe from my numbers cookies December 29, 2011 post. Although next week I am going to try Martha Stewart's sugar cookie recipe and compare. I will let you know - what recipe I prefer.
You just cut out 15 bottoms and 15 tops and bake. Then I spread Nutella on the bottom cookie. Before I pressed the cutout cookie on top I sprinkled it with confectioner's sugar. You could use your favorite jam instead of the Nutella.
