Linzer Bars

Delicious buttery, flaky pastry filled with raspberry preserves makes a pretty addition to any cookie platter. These bars are perfect for Christmas, but make a great treat any time of the year.


 

Ingredients:

1-1/3 c butter, softened
3/4 c sugar
1 egg
1 tsp grated lemon peel
2-1/2 c flour
11/2 c whole almonds, finely ground
1 tsp cinnamon
3/4 c raspberry preserves or jam
confectioners’ sugar, to sprinkle over top


 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350° F.
Lightly grease a 13″ x 9″ baking pan.
  1. In a food processor or blender, grind almonds until fine.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until well blended. Beat the egg and grated lemon peel into the butter and sugar mixture. Stir in flour, ground almonds and cinnamon.
  3. Press 2 c of the dough into the bottom of the greased baking pan. Evenly spread preserves over the crust. Take the remaining dough and small amounts evenly over the layer of preserves; It’s fine to leave small gaps between the pieces of top crust.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes until bars are golden brown. Place pan on a wire rack to cool. When bars have cooled completely, sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar and cut into 36 bars.
     
Makes 36 bars.
