Linecké kolácky (Linzer cookies)


These are basically cookie-cutter cookie sandwiches with jam in between. Youngsters are very good at cutting them out, spreading jam, and sprinkling on the powdered sugar. Like the vánocka, there aren't very many ingredients and the result is rather impressive.

Step 1: Cookie Piece
1 cup butter (unsalted, at room temperature)
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix together in the order given. Chill for 3-4 hours in refrigerator. Roll out and cut into circles; making 1/2 of the circles into doughnut shapes. Bake 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees.

Step 2: Cookie Sandwiches

To make each finished cookie sandwich, spread jam on a circle and then put a doughnut circle on top. Then sprinkle with confectioner's sugar (the best way to do this is by putting some sugar in a small sieve and stirring it with a spoon above the cookie).
