Linzer Sables- Tuesdays with Dorie

This weeks Tuesdays with Dorie was chosen by Dennis, of Living the Life... Linzer Sables. I, of course, had never made these yummy little cookies & was excited to try out something new. The recipe calls to use pecans, walnuts or hazelnuts in the dough. I choose Hazelnuts as I have a big bag of them on hand, and I just love the flavor.This was a very easy recipe to put together. I rolled mine out, and put it in the freezer for 45 minutes... and got to work. I found that I had to work very quickly as the warmer the dough got, the harder it was to work with. I decided to try two different fillings... Raspberry Jam & Nutella. They were just delicious... in fact, I had to get them out of my house immediately for fear of devouring them all!!

Hehe - there are definitely some cookies that are just dangerous to have around. I tend to half or even quarter a recipe when that happens, just because I have no willpower with tasty cookies :) Yours look wonderful!

Yeah, as I sit here reading about all these cookies mine are in the kitchen calling my name out. The only thing that stops me is knowing Grumpy will say "what, your eating ANOTHER one of those things?" he he.

Your cookies look perfect! And you are right -- these little suckers are dangerous. I bet that they were really delicious with ground hazelnuts -- I want to try that next!

Linda said...

Beautiful cookies! These were delicious and dangerously addictive, weren't they? :)

I only made half a batch and I'm glad I did, because I may have eaten a lot more than I did. And I just got a chance to see your Twofer pie, which turned out just beautiful.
