Lemon Linzer Cookies with Lemon Curd

What kind of Christmas it would be without traditional Linzer Cookies on the table? Since the recipe for traditional Linzer cookies, just filled with salted caramel, is already on the blog, I decided to change them a bit and add lemon zest into regular dough. I also wanted soft lemon filling so I chose lemon curd. This way, Lemon Linzer Cookies with Lemon Curd were made. I have been making Linzer Cookies by replacing a part of the flour with almond flour for quite some time, so Linzer Cookies are incredibly soft and fine. I did it with these lemon ones as well, and I added a little bit of lemon zest to give them the right, not over the top lemon taste. Lemon curd is a great helper in the kitchen, it can be used as a filling for tart, but if you cool it well enough, you can also use it as a “filling” for cookie sandwiches. Overall, the cookies are soft, they melt on your tongue and the delicate lemon taste of the cookies is nicely combined with a strong lemon curd taste. These Lemon Linzer Cookies are the right choice if you are fed up with the traditional ones or you want a little change this year.

      Ďakujem veľmi pekne, teším sa, že recept má úspech. Lemon curd môžete aj navrstviť do pohárov ak sa vám zvýšil 🙂 Od 13.12. by som to do Vianoc asi neriskovala, je pravdepodobné, že chuťovo ešte budú dobré, ale nemôžem sa za nich zaručiť po takej dobe. U mňa vydržali asi tak týždeň, max. 10 dní, to mi ešte príde ok (keďže sú tam vajíčka). Prípadne lemon curd môžete ešte zasterilizovať a dať do chladničky, takto vydrží ak ho nestíhate spraviť pre Vianocami 🙂
