Linzer Cookies Recipe

Makes about 22

Ingredients

1 package Duncan Hines Golden Sugar Cookie Mix

1/2 cup all purpose flour

1/2 finely ground almonds

1 egg

1 tablespoon water

3 tablespoons powdered sugar

1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon seedless red raspberry jam, warmed

Method

Preheat oven to 375 F.
Combine cookie mix, contents of buttery flavor from mix,
flour,
almonds, egg and water in large bowl. Stir with spoon until blended.
Roll dough
1/8 thick
on lightly floured board. Cut out 3" shapes with cookie cutter.
Take half
those cookies and
cut out the centers with a smaller cookie cutter.
Place the whole cookies 2"
apart on
ungreased cookie sheets and bake 8-9 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.

Place
the hollow cookies on another baking sheet (or if you use the same baking sheet,
make
sure it has cooled completely before placing the cookies on it) and bake them
for 6-7
minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool completely.
Dust the hollow
cookies with
sifted powdered sugar. Spread warm jam over whole cookies almost to the edge
and place
the hollow cookies on top, powdered-sugar side up. Press lightly. Fill the hole
with 1/4
teaspoon jam.
Store between layers of waxed paper in an airtight container.
