Christmas would never be the same without pretty cookies. And if there’s a variety that perfectly represents this idea, it’s Austrian linzer cookies. Made with roasted hazelnuts and cinnamon, the bottom cookie is covered with raspberry jam, then topped with a second cookie featuring a hole in the centre cut with a cookie cutter. A sprinkling of icing sugar brings the finishing touch. Made on the day you serve them, they’ll have a shortbread texture; the next day, they’ll be chewier. In either case, they’ll taste of Christmas with every bite.
