This week’s TwD recipe, Linzer Sables, is the selection of Noskos from the blog, Living the Life. The recipe can be found by visiting her blog or by flipping to pages 134-135 of Dorie’s book, Baking: From My Home to Yours.

In case you do not know, I make wax tarts for personal use in my home. One scent combination that I simply adore is Blackberry Jam Butter Cookie. There is nothing like this scent and people swoon over it! It is a lovely combination of a vanilla butter cookie fragrance mixed with the sweet scent of blackberry jam. When I read this week’s recipe, it was the first thing to pop into my mind, so I decided to adjust the ingredients. I left out the cloves (I am not a huge fan), only added a dash of cinnamon and threw in a teaspoon of pure vanilla extract. I also went with blackberry seedless jam which turned out to be delicious! The dough was super easy to make and rolled out in a snap. I tossed the dough into the fridge while I took my ceremonial Sunday nap and when got up I cut them with my dollar store cookie cutter. The boyfriend did not indulge in these cookies because he claims walnuts make his tongue hurt! I find this to be an odd problem, but hell maybe such a thing exists! Anyway, I loved these cookies they were light, crisp and so very yummy! I think these would be the perfect addition to any holiday cookie platter. I will definitely be making these again in the very near future.

Up next…Dutch Apple Tart

    Nice looking cookies! I do have the same problem getting pain on the sides of my tongue after eating walnuts. It might be a slight allergy. I love walnuts but I can’t eat them anymore.
