It’s hard to write a comment when you’re blushing as much as I am right now. Thank you so much for this kind, sweet and yes, way over-the-top post.
Your cookies are absolutely perfect and I’m so happy that you liked them. I always love the way you photograph your food, but I was tickled by the way you photographed the cookies on top of my book. Adorable.
Hi Yvette! Sorry about the nut allergy. This truly was not the cookie collection for folks with nut allergies. The Linzers are hard to replicate because the flavor really relies on the combination of nuts. You could easily use a butter cookie dough and flavor it with some cinnamon and allspice and make little sandwiches. Also, the walnut shortbread are great without the walnuts! I would definitely give them a try. Tomorrow’s recipe is also nut-free, so stay tuned.
Hi Ariel, They’ll keep longer if you don’t fill them with jam. Keep cookies in airtight container at room temperature and then fill with jam before serving. Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do once they get soft. These are really best eaten within a couple days of baking.
