Laura’s Linzer Cookies

I love Linzer cookies. Why do I love Linzer cookies? Well, let me tell you.

One, is because there is jam in them and I love jam. Jam is essentially my jam. Two, is that I love these cookies because they’re my basic sugar cookies which are both gluten-free and egg free.

Linzer cookies I feel are traditionally a holiday cookie. They’re beautiful and have red and white which tend to be a reminder of the holidays. However, they’re delicious any time of year.

Another great thing about this recipe? It is a 1:1, so you can make these gluten-free or not, and as eggs are running low for some right now, this is the perfect recipe for all.

What You’ll Need for Your Linzer Cookies:
