How to Make Linzer Cookies by Petra P.

Linzer cookies have been on many families’ holiday cookies list for years, bringing holiday

cheer around the world. You would probably think that the name of this European holiday cookie is named after the city of Linz, Austria. Actually, it isn’t. The Linzer is an original Hungarian delicacy.

Mr. Antal Mueller married into a family of confectioners and came up with this holiday cookie. He named it after Colonel Rudolf Linzer, who fought in the 1848 Hungarian Revolution. Since it was first available for tasting, it is still one of the most popular holiday cookies, easy to make and truly irresistible.


1 ½ cup all-purpose flour

1 ½ cup almond flour

½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

¼ teaspoon ground cloves

¼ teaspoon salt

1 egg

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 stick of butter

½ cup sugar


  1. Mix the ingredients together, then roll out the dough evenly ⅛ inch thick.

  2. Cut the dough with a cookie cutter into whatever shape desired.

  3. Bake at 375F.

  4. When cooled, stick two of the cookies together with a jam of your choosing.

  5. Sprinkle powdered sugar on top (optional).

Now that you have your cookies ready to eat, enjoy!
