Who can resist a good cookie. Especially with the classic combination of raspberries and almonds - they are perfect together. The sweetness of the raspberries compliment the almonds like a dream. Add the subtle flavor of brown sugar to this combo, and you have absolute perfection in this recipe for traditional Austrian cookies.
These Linzer cookies are delicious the first day they are baked but they will taste even better on day two or three. They practically melt in your mouth. They are soft and naturally flavored by using real toasted almonds. So much better than the store-bought kind. They are not too sweet at all. But my favorite part of making these cookies is that they are gorgeous and since it is Valentine's, I shaped them into pretty hearts.
One thing to take note of, do not let the dough harden too much because the dough will get too hard and not workable. I let my dough rest for less than two hours. Another thing to point out is that these cookies are great for shipping since they only get better by the day. So think of those special cookie monsters in your life that may be craving home baked cookies this time of year.
