Tortes are a recipe that uses nuts instead of flour as the main dough recipe ingredient. The Linzer torte recipe features an almond-based crust that is filled with black current preserves and then topped with a lattice crust. In the 19th century, the Linzer torte recipe was adapted into the present-day Linzer cookie that we know and love. Linzer cookie recipes use the same dough as Linzer tortes and can be filled with raspberry fillings rather than black current preserves. Today you will find Linzer cookie recipes that use raspberry preserves sandwiched between two cookie rounds. The top cookie is dusted with powdered sugar and features a round cutout that is known as a Linzer's eye. Linzer cookie recipe ingredients can vary depending on availability. You will find that instead of almonds, nuts such as hazelnuts can be substituted to make the Linzer dough. Any fruit preserve, jam, jelly or conserve can be used to fill the Linzer cookies.
