Daily Sketches: Yummies

Today's Yummies Sketch is a Linzer  Cookie based on the Linzer Torte. The Linzer Torte is an Austrian torte made up of a crumbly, mildly spiced pastry made from ground nuts, sugar, butter, and egg yolks. It is filled with jam (apricot, raspberry, plum) and then topped with more pastry. Linzer Cookies are individual versions, made into cute shapes with a simple center opening to showcase the brilliant filling. Here are a few links to some recipes:
Ina Garten's Mini Linzer Cookies made with a sugar cookie and raspberry preserves.
Real Simple's Linzer Cookies are made with and almond cookie and raspberry preserves.
Cooking Classy gives a recipe for an almond cookie base and raspberry preserves.
