Linzer cookies

This one that I propose today is a traditional Christmas recipe. Linzer cookies are a reinterpretation of the classic Austian Linzer torte. Linzer cookies are filled with raspberry jam, in addition there are several variations in the list of ingredients, from hazelnut flour instead of almond flour, to brown sugar and even in the filling with blueberry or currant jam.

1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 pinch salt
1 pinch cinnamon powder

Toast the peeled almonds. Let it cool and then chop with a cutter until you get a flour. Whip the butter with the sugar, salt, vanilla and cinnamon with a whisk. When the mixture is homogeneous, add the yolk. Then the almond flour and the flour sifted with baking powder. Form a loaf and wrap it in cling film. Let it rest for an hour in the fridge. Preheat the oven to 350 ° F (180°C).
Spread on a lightly floured work surface to a thickness of 5 mm. Cut some discs with a pastry cutter. Arrange them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. With a smaller star or heart shaped pastry ring, make holes in the center of half of the cookies. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and leave to cool. Sprinkle only the biscuits with the hole with icing sugar. Fill the biscuits without holes with the raspberry jam and cover with the decorated disc.
