TWD Round-Up: Buttery Jam Cookies, Linzer Cookies, Grandma's All-Purpose Sugar Cookies

Things have been a bit slow for me on the Tuesdays with Dorie front.  I decided to post my cookie adventures all at once.  No pudding or cheesecake for me this month, :(

First up, Linzer Sables, chosen by Noskos of Living the Life

I have always been intrigued by linzer cookies, so I was glad of the chance to make them.  I filled them with my American Spoon red raspberry jam, which is a beautiful deep color and tastes of fresh raspberries.  The dough was not as sandy as I expected it to be, and they benefitted from the quintessentially-linzer dusting of powdered sugar.  They did make a beautiful cookie though.  

Next, Grandma's All-Purpose Sugar Cookies, Chosen by Ulrike of Kuchenlatein

these are beautiful and crisp, deliciously buttery and an easy dough to work with.  I dipped mine in dark chocolate and added sprinkles.  This was a great choice, perfect for the season. 

Lastly, Buttery Jam Cookies chosen by Heather of Randomosity and the Girl

I made these with applesauce instead of eggs, and added my mom's homemade peach jam.  No pictures of these, although they weren't especially photogenic.   They were moist and tasty had a nice hint of cinnamon.  

head on over to the host's sites for the recipes, and the TWD blogroll to see what everyone else has created.
I can't wait to see what is in store for us in the new year!
