Linzer Cookies (Tuesdays with Dorie)
Linzer Cookies

Wee! It's the start of Birthday month! My birthday is on Sunday!

For this week's Tuesdays with Dorie, Noskos of Living the Life chose Linzer Sables on pages 134-135 of Dorie's great book: Baking: From My Home to Yours (which makes a great holiday gift by the way! :)

I rolled out the dough waaaaaay too thick. And the mat wasn't floured enough so everything stuck. It was kinda a nightmare - all my fault. I ended up with just a few that turned out.

But since I did buy new Linzer Sables from Sur la Table, I'm going to try again!!

Linzer Cookies (Tuesdays with Dorie)
Filled 'em with raspberry and apricot jam!

Be sure to check out the other Tuesdays with Dorie bakers who probably did a much better job!!

They are so beautiful! Great job. And happy birthday. So we are both Saggitarians? Good sign, great people, huh? :)

Those are so cute! I'm jealous, your cookies look exactly how I wanted mine to look. I must get my hands on some mini cutters before I deal with the second half of the dough.

Oh, your cookies look so incredible! I used the same scalloped edge cutter but forgot to make any cutouts - yours are so pretty!

Have a Happy Birthday!

December is my birthday month also... but I have to wait a few more weeks for it yet (it's the 28th)
Your cookies look great! I'm sorry you had a hard time rolling and cutting them though...

Happy Birthday Mary! Hope you have a ton of fun things planned this coming weekend!

I think your cookies look great --- not to thick at all --- great job!

Happy Birthday month! (and birthday) And what are you talking about? Yours look great, I rolled mine out too thin instead of too thick.

MacDuff said... [Reply to comment]

No...so pretty!! And I love Sur la Table.

My cookies were too thick, too, but the few that I did get thin broke apart really easily. So maybe thick is the new thin. That's what I tell my personal trainer, at least.

I think they turned out beautifully! I'm so jealous of your cookie cutters! I was just at Sur La Table this past Saturday to get those mini tartlette pans you told me about, and I completely forgot about those cookie cutters! Too bad it's 100 miles away :(

Andrea said... [Reply to comment]

Happy birthday - and nice job with the linzers. New baking gadgets are always fun to play with, in any case.

Happy Birthday! Mine is this month too. (Also my younger daughter and my stepson and my best friend.) You'd never know by looking at those cookies that you had any difficulties. They look delicious.

Love the linzer cookies and the pumpkin rolls below! Yum! Do you ever bring your goods to the library? If you did, I'd never leave. I'd eat and read all day!

I don't think your linzer cookies are too thick either. Love the cut-out, look very cute. :-)

How pretty! I rolled mine out between two sheets of wax paper and froze for 5 min after cutting out the shapes, they came off the paper very well indeed. I could use some cookies now... mmmm.... Happy birthday!

ostwestwind said... [Reply to comment]

Eunice said... [Reply to comment]

I love these!!! You always have great bakes! Yes I do prefer them a little thinner, but they look lovely anyhow!

By the way, Where did you get the cute little heart cutters from? I really love them...but I think I can't find them in Malaysia :( Big sniffles!! Are they expensive? Sigh again!
