    I love a Linzer cookie but this has to be the worst recipes I've ever tried for the Linzer, perhaps even the worst cookie recipe I've tried. I can usually count on Martha Stewart to provide worthy and reliable recipes but this wasn't it. The Linzer is my brother's favorite so I tried this recipe in hopes of a Christmas gift to him. First of all, the dough is crumbly before you even refrigerate it, then when it comes out of the fridge, the dough is simply unmanageable and can't be rolled.

    At first the dough was a little difficult to handle-it was crumbling a lot when rolled-both chilled and slightly warmed. After I filled them with the jam, the cookies tasted a million times better the subsequent days. I think the jam soaked into them, and then they were delicious. I'll probably try making them again now that I know what to expect.

    GREAT! pretty easy. nice hazelnut flavor. i don't think toasting the hazelnuts beforehand is a must, done them both ways and didn't notice that much of a difference. but i also roll these very thin.

    10 minutes at 375 totally burned my hazelnuts, so keep a close eye on the oven in that first step. expensive mistake!

    In Germany, they use Red Currant jam in addition to Raspberry jam. Red Currants are tart and delicious!

    You can buy ground hazelnuts ready to use at any german deli, bakery or store. Saves a lot of time.

    These cookies are just heaven. Seedless jam works best.
