Nutella Linzer Cookies

Cookie Dough
2 cups blanched hazelnuts, toasted and cooled (see instructions)
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
6 tablespoons Nutella

Filling
1/2 cup Nutella
1/2 cup raspberry jam
1/3 cup confectioners’ sugar (optional)

Grind the hazelnuts, cornstarch and salt in a food processor for 30 seconds or until finely ground. Add the eggs and 6 tablespoons Nutella and pulse until the mixture comes together. Pat the dough into a circle, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Divide the dough in half and roll out each piece between 2 sheets of parchment or wax paper to 1/4-inch thickness (or 8 x 10 inches). Using a 2-inch fluted cookie cutter, cut out 12 cookies per piece. On one baking sheet, using a 1-inch cookie cutter, cut into the center of each cookie and remove that cutout leaving a hole for the jam. Transfer the cookies to a fresh parchment paper or aluminum foil-lined baking sheet and bake for 8 minutes. Cool on a rack.

Spread the cookies without the holes (these are the bottoms) with 1 teaspoon of Nutella, then 1 teaspoon raspberry jam. Sift confectioners’ sugar over the cookies with the holes and place them on top of the bottoms, creating 12 delicious sandwich cookies.

  • To toast the hazelnuts, preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Spread the hazelnuts in a single layer on a baking sheet and toast them in the oven until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Allow the nuts to cool completely before handling.

Makes 12 servings.

Apricot Almond Rugalach

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsalted butter, chilled
4 ounces cream cheese, cold
3/4 cup apricot jam
1/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup toasted and chopped almonds
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 egg
1/3 cup chopped almonds
1/3 cup sifted confectioners’ sugar

To Make Pastry: Place the flour in a bowl. Cut the butter into the flour and blend until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Cut the cream cheese into small cubes and rub into the flour-butter mixture. Knead until the dough forms a ball. Cut dough in half, wrap each half in plastic wrap and refrigerate.

To Make Filling: Stir the apricot jam until it is spreadable. In a bowl combine the sugar with the chopped nuts and grated lemon peel.

To Assemble: On a lightly floured surface roll out each half of dough. The larger and thinner the circle the crisper the cookies will be. Each circle should be at least 9 inches in diameter. Spread each circle with jam and sprinkle with the almond mixture.

Cut each circle into twelve wedges. Roll each wedge up tightly from the outside edges. Turn edges slightly to form a crescent. Place crescents on a parchment lined baking sheet about 1 inch apart. Repeat until all cookies are shaped.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Beat egg and brush cookies with beaten egg. Sprinkle with nuts. Bake cookies for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Let cookies cool on wire wracks then dust with sifted confectioners’ sugar.

1 cup butter
1/2 cup water
1 1/2 cups almond paste
2 eggs
3/4 cup white sugar
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1 pinch salt

In a large bowl, cut cold butter or margarine into flour until the mixture has a crumb-like texture. Make a well in the center, add cold water. Mix together until the mixture forms a ball. Do not overmix. Chill dough.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (225 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.

In a medium bowl, blend together almond paste, eggs, 3/4 cup sugar, almond extract and salt.

Divide dough in 4 parts, and roll into 15 inch strips. Place filling along the center of each long strip of dough. Roll up, and pinch the ends to seal. Place strips 2 inches apart on cookie sheet. Brush with egg white, and sprinkle with the remaining sugar.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until golden.

could you explain the A before measurments to me, want to make these cookies today

the “A” is that little computer ghost that adds unnecessary and unneeded characters to recipes that have been perfectly typed and then copied and pasted here - the little computer ghost puts an “A” in front of measurements, etc. and a bunch of characters in place of the apostrophe, etc.
please ignore it -
