These are always a hit when I make them. I used powdered sugar for lightly dusting my flat surface as to not add any additional flour to the dough. They come out great everytime and disappear so quickly. I just used linzer cookie cutters I bought at Sur la Table (one of my favorite stores!).

These were a huge hit at the party I brought them to. I did make a few tweaks though. Used 1/2 whole wheat flour, 1/2 all purpose flour. Also used 1 tsp of cinnamon. The dough was slightly drier than expected so I could have used a little more egg substitute or maybe a few tsp of water. It was hard to roll out right out of the fridge but it warmed up a little bit. Used slightly more raspberry preserves than the recipe called for. The cookies came out VERY crispy when they cooled but after putting the preserves on them, they were much softer a few hours later. Perfect! I'll definitely be making these again!

These are wonderful cookies! They are best when made a little bit in advance and then sit ( at least a couple of hours), so the cookie softens. They also freeze well. In a pinch, I use one large egg instead of the 1/4 cup egg substitute.

I have no idea why there aren't more ratings for these. Always the star of my annual cookie tins. Definitely worth the time. I bake mine very thin (decreasing cook time) so that they stay somewhat dainty after putting them together. This is the cookie my family always asks for.

Have made these quite a few times and always been pleased. I also use an egg instead of egg substitute. I like to use two heart shaped cutters for Valentine's Day. I haven't tried it but I think they also be good with a chocolate hazelnut spread instead of the jam.
