Linzer cookies with salted caramel

 Yes, I caught this Christmas mood as well. Although it´s a bit late comparing to other food bloggers, I´m going to publish a few Christmas recipes as well. The first one is a recipe for traditional linzer cookies done a bit unusually, filled with salted caramel instead of jam. As I already said, salted caramel is my new favorite ingredient. If you want to impress guests with something new and at the same time tested, this recipe is exactly for you. This is family recipe, just with the variation of flour. Thanks to almond flour, cookies are perfectly balanced between fragile and tough. They´re just the way they should be.

Linzer cookies with salted caramel
Traditional Christmas linzer cookies with new salted caramel filling
Ingredients
  • 650 g all-purpose flour
  • 230 g icing sugar
  • 130 g almond flour
  • 500 g butter/margarine
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1/3 tsp salt
  • Caramel:
  • 200 g granulated sugar
  • 90 g butter cut into cubes
  • 120 ml whipping cream
  • ¾ tsp salt
Instructions
  1. Mix flour with sugar, almond flour, butter, egg yolks and salt. Process ingredients to create a dough. Put it in some cold place for an hour.
  2. After an hour, roll the dough out on a floured work surface and cut out various shapes. Try to get the same number of whole cookies and the ones with a small window in the middle. You get 9 large baking pans of cookies from this amount of ingredients.
  3. Put cookies on baking paper and bake on 190 degrees for about 10 minutes - it depends on the thickness of cookies.
  4. Fill and join baked and cooled cookies with cooled, solid salted caramel. It can be sprinkled with icing sugar.
  5. Salted Caramel: Heat sugar on medium heat when stirring constantly. When it is completely melted, lower the heat and add butter. Stir immediately. Be careful not to burn yourself. When the butter is completely melted, add the whipping cream. Stir immediately. Be careful not to burn yourself – there will be a lot of steam. Cook and stir constantly until it begins to bubble, then switch off immediately. Then add salt and let it cool a bit. After that, pour it in the glass jar.
Recipe Notes

If you like classic linzer cookies more, use jam instead of caramel.
