Easy Valentine’s Day Linzer Cookies!
How To Make Gluten/Dairy Free Linzer Cookies!
It has been slow coming back to the blog these days here in January! I have actually been spending this month working on painting our kitchen cabinets a new color on the bottom and I can not wait to share with you! Until then, today I am joining some sweet friends for a variety of Valentine’s Day projects. Mine involves baking up some gluten/dairy free Linzer cookies. I must say they are delicious!
Here is what you will need to make them:
- 1 and 1/3 cups of almond flour
- 1 flax egg (using 1 tbsp. flax seed with 3 tbs. water)
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp oil (I used almond oil)
- 2 tbsp of coconut sugar (you can add more if you prefer these cookies even sweeter)
- Coconut flour for dusting dough
- Fruit preserves or jam
- Linzer cookie cutter or a round cookie cutter with a small heart cookie cutter that fits for inside.
Here is how you will put these cookies together!
Set the oven to 350 degrees. Start by mixing the dry ingredients together and then add in all the wet. Mix ingredients well and form the dough into a ball.
Roll your dough out into a 1/4 inch thickness (if it feels too sticky, make sure to dust some coconut flour onto your surfaces – this will help a lot). I like to roll this dough between two pieces of parchment paper as well.
You will use your round cookie cutter to cut out the bottom half of the cookie. I couldn’t get my Linzer cookie cutter to behave so I actually pulled the middle cookie cutter heart piece out and used it separately.
Now cut out the top cookie shape that should have a heart cut out inside as well.
You should have pairs of equal tops and bottoms for your Linzer cookies.
Set them into the oven to bake. I check mine at 7 minutes and take out ones that are already browned and cooked. Some may need to stay in a bit longer.
Take your cookies out and let them cool once done.
Next you will take your fruit jam, jelly etc. and begin spreading it on the bottom half of your cookie.
I like to spread mine so that the center is a bit thicker.
Simply place your cookie a top and that is it! So pretty and delicious! I hope you enjoy and make sure to check out these amazing ideas from my friends down below!
