Next time, I'll double the recipe.
This week's recipe, Linzer Sables, was chosen by noskos of Living the Life, and can be found on pages 134-136 of Dorie Greenspan's Baking: From My Home to Yours.
Since I'm in my usual December cookie-baking frenzy, these were no trouble to slide into my schedule. I had everything required, except for the raspberry jam. I had boysenberry, though, and I figured that would do the job.
The dough went together quickly and easily, and then I rolled it out between pieces of plastic wrap, as instructed, and kept the two discs (or free-form shapes) cold and flat on a cookie sheet in the fridge.
A couple hours later – time to cut out my cookies.
I baked them, let them cool, cooked the jam and water, cooled that, and assembled my little sandwiches.
And then I dusted them – okay, blizzarded them – with confectioner's sugar.
And the general consensus here? They were quite tasty.

And me? I've got more cookies to work on! Fa-la-la-la-la!
