Linzer Cookies

Linzer cookies are one of my new favorites, and I can't wait until next year to make them again. Layers of crumbly, nutty dough, your favorite sweet jam, topped with powdered sugar Linzers are the essence of a traditional Christmas cookie. They even have a stained-glass window-like appearance making them their own holiday ornament.

Regina Cookies

Regina Cookies are well complimented with a cup of coffee. The anise combines nicely with the nutty flavor of the sesame seeds making for a pleasant treat for breakfast or dessert.

Chocolate Almond Cookies

 
A light sugar coating on the outside of these cookies provides a crisp barrier that enhances the sweet almond flavor and slowly yields the chewy, chocolaty goodness inside!
