TWD: Linzer Sables


I didn't think I'd be able to get this post up today. Who am I kidding? I didn't think I'd be able to make these cookies today, but the prep was quick (I used almond meal instead of the flour-ground almond combo), the cutting was quick, the baking was quick, and the decorating was quick. Sure there were 2 hours between making the dough and getting it ready to bake, but that was perfect because I got plenty of studying done in those two hours. I cut these cookies in the shape of a bone because I thought that would be cute and because I miss my pup. The cookies were crunchy and crumbling and delicious. I think it's great that these cookies are filled with jelly and covered in powedered sugar because I didn't find the cookies themselves to be sweet and I am personally a fan of sweet cookies.

Thanks to David of Living the Life for choosing this week's selection. Don't forget to go to TWD to see what the other bakers did this week!

Crunchy cookie


Doesn't the sugar look like snow?


My light was running out in these pictures.

Your dog bones are so cute! Agreed on the filling and powdered sugar, which made these cookies much more enjoyable for me.
