Linzer Cookie Substitutions

I used a raspberry jam filling for the center but you can absolutely substitute the filling for your favorite kind of jam. You can also substitute the vanilla extract for almond or any other extract that you want to pair with these cookies.

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature

  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar

  • 2 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

  • 1 egg yolk

  • 1/4 tsp. salt

  • 1 1/2 cups flour

  • 1/4 cup raspberry jam


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of stand mixer fit with the paddle attachment or with a hand held mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until light and airy. About 2 minutes.
  • Add the vanilla and egg yolk to the butter mixture. Mix until well combined.
  • Add the flour and salt to the butter mixture and mix until it begins to resemble crumbly pieces.
  • Use your hands to bring the dough together into a ball.
  • Roll the dough out onto a piece of parchment paper. The dough will stick to the rolling pin so place an additional piece of parchment paper over the dough to prevent the dough from sticking and breaking. The dough should be rolled out to about 1/8″.
  • Use the cookie cutter shape of your choice and cut out as many shapes as you can until the dough is completely used up.
  • Use a small circle cutter or the back side of a piping tip to cut out circles on half the shapes. These ones will be the top cookies.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. These cookies are thin so be sure to keep an eye on them in the oven to prevent them from over baking.
  • Let the cookies cool completely on a wire rack before filling.
  • Add about 1/2 tsp. – 1 tsp. of jam on the bottom side of the cookies without the center cut out.
  • Sprinkle the cookies with the center cut out with confectioner’s sugar.
  • Top the jam filled side with the center cut out cookies to complete the Linzer Cookie.
  • Enjoy!
