These Easy Linzer Cookies with Cherry Jam and Chocolate are melt in your mouth buttery cookies that have the perfect snap every time you have a bite. Filled with cherry jam or cherry conserve these are my husband’s favourite tea companion or morning treat.
Sunday morning my husband wakes up and says, “…Lets do some Linzer Cookies!…” Wooowww that took me by surprise because he’s definitely not the spontaneous type, at all!! Anyway, so we did, and the result were amazingly delicious Linzer Cookies that I had to share with you guys…
To me Linzer cookies are the easiest cookies to make, and you don’t need to have a degree in French Patisserie for them to come out perfect every time, especially with my fool prove recipe. Believe me if my husband can make these, so can you!
You can fill Linzer cookies with anything you like, strawberry or raspberry jam, Nutella or cream, but these are filled with cherry Conserve because it was what my husband wanted.

HOW TO MAKE LINZER COOKIES VIDEO
WHAT ARE LINZER COOKIES
Linzer cookies come as an American variation to the Austrian Linzertorte. The name Linzer comes from where the torte was created, the town of Linz in Austria.
The original torte recipe was made of a buttery dough with almonds, lemon zest and cinnamon, and filled with a black current preserve and topped with a lattice crust.
MINI LINZER COOKIES WITH CHOCOLATE
With the mini circles left from making the top half of the cookies I like to drizzle some melted chocolate over them to have them with tea or coffee.
I know this recipe is not the absolute authentic cookie dough, but my husband doesn’t really like sweets with almonds or lemons so I omitted these ingredients, but, I have added them onto the recipe as optional.
