These Chocolate Raspberry Linzer Cookies were on my to-bake list last Christmas and I ran out of time to make them. Dang way too busy holiday season!! I always make too huge of a Christmas cookie baking list as it is, and there are still some on this year’s list I have a feeling I won’t get to. That just means I have a jump start on next year!
Linzer cookies have always been a favorite Christmas cookie of mine. My mom makes the same version every Christmas while I like to branch out and try different flavor combinations. I have made a ton of Christmas cookies this season. More than I usually make. Not a bad problem to have.
At this point I think I have more cookies than I know what to do with after making these linzer cookies. My freezer was FULL before I made these and I have no clue how I was able to fit these in too. So maybe it would be a good thing to not get to the rest on my list since there is no more room to keep them. My family can’t eat them as fast as I am baking them. I am going to go ahead and call this “First world problems” or ” food blogger problems”
I think I need to take a break from anything requiring powdered sugar for a while. I am pretty confident there is at least a pound of it suspended in air in this house and all over everything after making these linzer cookies. Including my phone and camera. That is what I get for trying to attempt action shots and take pics at the same time. I need an assistant. One that won’t try to steal the cookies while I am taking pictures like my kids try to do.
These are such a fun cookie to make and the flavor combinations are really endless. You can make them with any jam filling you like. Caramel sauce works well too!
