I can't image celebrating Christmas without these brittle linzer cookies, filled with our favorite marmalade. They look incredibly beautiful, but they taste even better. Brittle, sweet and delicious. You can use your favorite marmalade, however we usually use the one we made early in the year. This year we filled them with apricot and grape marmalade and they are beyond delicious. You can never go wrong with a classic + you can store these for up to 10 days in a tightly closed box, how great is that? Happy holidays lovelies :)

brittle linzer cookies with marmalade
METHOD
beat the butter and icing sugar
    Beat the butter and icing sugar until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the eggs (one by one) and rum. Beat until combined.
dough
    Meanwhile whisk together the flour, baking soda, zest of one lemon, pinch of salt, seeds of 1/2 vanilla bean. You can also add chopped cardamom. Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture and mix until just combine. Wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.
bake
    Lightly flour the surface and roll out the dough about 3mm thick (1/4"). Using a linzer cookie cutter, cut out the cookies. Transfer them to a baking sheet, lined with parchment paper. Bake for about 10 - 12 minutes at 190 °C / 375 °F, or until golden brown. Transfer to a rack to cool completely.

TIP

Place the cookies with the holes on a baking sheet and sift the icing sugar over the top.
serve and store
    Pour marmalade into a saucepan and heat slightly. Spoon 1 teaspoon of jam into the center of a cookie, spreading it slightly. Top with sugar dusted cookie with a whole. Serve right away or store in a box for up to 10 days.
