These special cookies resemble miniature versions of Linzertorte, a traditional Austrian dessert with a hazelnut pastry crust filled with jam. With their snow-like dusting of icing sugar and jam-jeweled centre, they're sure to be the star of your holiday cookie tray.
If you want to really get creative, try using different cookie cutter shapes to customize your cookies. A star shape is perfect for the holidays. Elegant and festive, your guests will think you slaved away for hours, when really these are a cinch to make. Make sure to set some aside for yourself before they're all gone!
