My mom always loved these cookies. So in honor and memory of her and Mother's Day, Linzer Tarts - made with love.
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tsp. almond extract
- 3 cups flour
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 jar Red Raspberry preserves (seedless if you can find it)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Roll dough onto floured surface to 1/4" thickness. Cut into desired shapes, one with a hole and one without. Bake approx. 8-10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Let cool on wire rack. To assemble: Spread one cookie without the hole with raspberry preserves. Dust cookie with the hole liberally with confectioner's sugar and sandwich together.
