Einkorn Almond Linzer Cookies

http://schneiderchen.de | © 2016 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com

These jam-filled Linzer cookies satisfy the sweet craving and just happen to be healthy because of the use of wholegrain einkorn flour and stevia-sweetened jam. The Linzer cookie, originated in the city of Linz, is based on the Linzertorte, one of the most famous and beloved holiday classics in Austria.

Einkorn Almond Linzer Cookies

adapted from Küchen Götter
  • 150 g Blanched almonds, ground
  • 150 g Einkorn berries, milled into flour
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 tsp Clove powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 150 g Butter, softened
  • 50 g Powdered sugar
  • 1 Egg, medium
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla powder
  • Stevia sweetened strawberry jam for filling
  • Powdered sugar for dusting
  1. Whisk together the ground almonds, einkorn flour, cinnamon, clove and salt in a bowl.
  2. Beat butter and powdered sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in the vanilla powder and egg. Finally beat in flour mixture on low speed until the dough starts to come together. Place onto a work surface lightly dusted with flour and shape into a flat disk. Wrap in a plastic and chill for 2 hours.
  3. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Roll the dough between 2 sheets of baking paper to 3-mm thick and cut out cookies with a 5-cm heart-shaped cutter. Place them on the prepared baking sheets. Use a smaller round cookie cutter to cut out the centers of half of the cookies on the baking sheet. Reroll any scraps and cut out the remaining cookies. You will have 70 cookies. Chill for 15 minutes.
  4. Preheat the oven to 150C/300F. Bake cookies, one sheet at time, until edges are golden, 10 minutes. Let cookies cool on sheet 2 minutes. Transfer cookies to a rack to cool completely. Spread jam on the flat side of each solid cookie. Dust the top of the cut-out cookies with powdered sugar and press the flat sides together.
