Is this a cookie or a tart? A torte or a cake? It is a gorgeous cookie tart, with a European cachet but American ease of passage.......To me, Linzertorte has cookie roots and tort-ish aspirations.
It is the quintessential European treat: a nutty shortbread, kissed with a touch of cinnamon and cloves, topped with raspberry preserves followed by a lattice-work crust and a halo of confectioners’ sugar. This is divine and easy – lovely at Christmas but fashionably all seasonal. We dolled this sweetie up with a trio of nuts, and blended apricot as well as raspberry preserves to glitz up this tried-and-true. Match this up with a homemade apple strudel for a mini sweet table and have The Sound of Music cued in the DVD.
