Linzer cookies are simple, yet oh-so-tasty shortbread cookies filled with Smucker’s Fruit & Honey Triple Berry Fruit Spread and dusted with confectioners’ sugar.
With the holidays comes numerous cookie recipes, but I always find time to make one of the classics—Linzer cookies. These simple, yet oh-so-tasty shortbread cookies are filled with Smucker’s Fruit & Honey Triple Berry Fruit Spread and dusted with confectioners’ sugar.
Something about shortbread cookies gets my tastebuds tingling. It’s probably the melt-in-your-mouth buttery texture that has that effect. But what really makes shortbread cookies irresistible is topping them with fruit spread. The slightly tart, but still sweet, spread is the perfect counterpart to shortbread.
So props to whomever created Linzer cookies because these shortbread jam sandwiches are seriously good. And better yet, they’re quite easy to make!
Start with a simple shortbread cookie recipe and roll out the dough. Take your favorite mini cookie cutters and cut fun shapes in the center of half the cookies (those will be the top half of the sandwich). Bake the cookies in the oven for 10 minutes and once cooled, top with Smucker’s Fruit & Honey Triple Berry Fruit Spread.
Smucker’s Fruit & Honey Triple Berry Fruit Spread is the perfect filling for these Linzer Cookies. It’s smooth enough to spread, but still has a few pieces of berries throughout for texture. It’s also the perfect amount of sweet as it’s naturally sweetened with honey.
I found Smucker’s Fruit & Honey Triple Berry Fruit Spread at Walmart along with other tasty flavors: Strawberry, Blueberry Lemon, Strawberry Jalapeno and Concord Grape. I think the Strawberry or Blueberry Lemon flavors would be equally delicious in Linzer Cookies!
Of course Linzer cookies wouldn’t be complete without a generous dusting of confectioners’ sugar. With it looking like snow and all, it’s perfect for holiday entertaining. Guests will no doubt be impressed by these cookie making skills.
Pro tip: If you’re preparing for a holiday party, the Linzer cookie dough can be refrigerated a few days prior to entertaining. Bake the cookies the day before (or day of) the party and fill with fruit spread. They’ll be ready to serve in no time!
Whether you’re throwing a holiday party, making a plate of cookies for Santa or just need a little something sweet while curling up next to the fireplace, these Linzer cookies will do the trick.
