I love linzer cookies. My husband really likes linzer cookies (although he forgot what they were until I reminded him that I had previously made them with this recipe). The holidays were quickly approaching and I wanted to introduce my gluten sensitive little one to these treats as well. I decided to make gluten free sugar or linzer cookies because hey, who doesn’t like cookies and jam right?
I tested these cookies a few times. Finally, I was happy with the consistency and taste of these gluten free cookies. As usual, the dough was sticky unless I practically froze it and kept it chilled when I wasn’t actively rolling it and cutting it. It was also easier to cut out the cookie ring shapes directly on the silpat mat (lifesaver for cookie bakers). I would them take out the centers, chill, and reroll the scraps. These cookies were light and crumbly. They were perfect as sugar cookies with a touch of icing or linzer cookies with a dollop of jam. I’m glad to add these as a gluten free dessert staple!
