Directions

  • 1 Beat butter and sugar in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy, or mix with spoon. Beat in vanilla and eggs until smooth. Add remaining ingredients except jam and melted chocolate. Beat until well blended. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour (dough will be sticky).
  • 2 Heat oven to 375°F. Roll one-fourth of dough at a time between pieces of waxed paper until 1/8 inch thick. (Keep remaining dough refrigerated until ready to roll.) Cut with 2-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter. Cut small heart shape from center of half of the 2-inch hearts if desired. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.
  • 3 Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until light brown. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes. Spread about 1/2 teaspoon raspberry jam on bottom of whole heart cookies; top with cutout heart cookie. Drizzle with melted chocolate. Let stand until chocolate is firm.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

The linzertorte is a rich, elegant tart from Linz, Austria. The original tart has a buttery crust of ground almonds, grated lemon rind and spices. The crust is spread with a sweet layer of raspberry jam and topped with a lattice crust.

Hazelnuts, also called filberts, are easier to skin after they’ve been heated in a 350ºF oven for 10 to 15 minutes. Place a handful of warm nuts in a dishtowel, fold the towel over the nuts and rub vigorously to remove skins. Repeat with remaining hazelnuts.
