Raspberry Fig Linzer Cookies (Diabetic) image

Though the holidays are far away, I'm already looking at my cookbooks and magazines and thinking about the recipes I wanted to try this past year and did not. Since I have several friends who are diabetic, I always make tins to accommodate their needs. This recipe from "Diabetic Living" should be on my 2007 trays. To prepare these you can use a cookie cutter designed for linzer cookies or two cookie cutters in the same shape with one about 1 ½ to 2 inches the other about a half inch smaller. You can make these with white sugar but that will increase the carbohydrate content. As presented: 62 calories, 10 g carbs.

Time 35m

Yield 26 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 14

2 tablespoons sweet butter, softened
1/4 cup Splenda sugar substitute, for baking
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons vegetable oil (canola is best)
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 eggs or 1/4 cup egg substitute
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups sifted cake flour (measure after sifting)
3 tablespoons cornmeal (either yellow or white)
1/3 cup orange juice
1/3 cup fresh raspberries or 1/3 cup frozen raspberries
3 tablespoons dried figs, finely diced
powdered sugar
cake flour


  • In a large bowl beat together the butter, oil, sugar substitute until combined. Add in the egg/egg substitute, salt, baking powder and vanilla. Using your mixer, beat in the corn meal and as much of the flour as you can. If the dough becomes too stiff, mix in the rest of the flour by hand.
  • Divide the dough in half, wrap in plastic and chill for two hours.
  • While the dough is chilling, prepare your filling by adding all ingredients to a small saucepan. Bring the mix to a boil and reduce to a lower simmer. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring regularly, until the filling is thickened. Transfer to a mini-chopper or use an immersion blender to puree the mix until smooth. Allow to cool completely.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. (Note you are using untreated cookie sheets here.)
  • Roll out the first disc of dough until it is 1/8 inch thick. Using the larger cookie cutter, cut out cookies and transfer to the baking sheet about 1 inch apart. Bake for 5 minutes until the edges of the cookie are firm but not browned. Remove from oven and transfer to a wire rack.
  • With the second disc of dough, repeat as above except that you will be using the smaller cutter to create a window in the cookies for the tops. In doing so, carefully place the smaller cookie cutters on the shapes made by the larger cutters in a manner so that the sides around the center hole are even.
  • To assemble the linzer cookies, first apply a light dusting of powdered sugar on the top cookies (those with the cutouts). Spread a small amount of the raspberry-fig filling on the bottom cookie. Gently take the top cookies by the edges and line the top cookie over the filling pressing down ever so slightly.

Linzer Cookies image

You could use store-bought seedless raspberry preserves to fill these cookies, but Hermé's method of pureeing the raspberries in a blender to extract all the pectin from the seeds is clever and easy, and it makes a better filling than any you can buy. MAKE AHEAD: The cookies can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 1 week or frozen for up to 2 months. NOTES: The Linzer dough can be cut into decorative shapes, but the cookies aren't particularly sweet without the raspberry jam, so dust them with confectioners' sugar once they've cooled.

Time 1h30m

Yield 4 dozen cookies, 24 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 14

1 1/2 cups unsalted butter, softened
1 1/3 cups confectioners' sugar
1/2 cup blanched almond, finely ground (2 1/2 ounces)
2 tablespoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 pinch salt
4 large egg yolks
2 tablespoons aged dark rum
3 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for rolling
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups fresh raspberries or 2 cups flash- frozen raspberries
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1 large egg, beaten, for glazing (optional)


  • In a large bowl, beat the butter with the confectioners' sugar at medium speed just until blended. Add the ground almonds, cinnamon and salt and beat just until combined. Beat in the egg yolks and the rum, then add the 3 cups of flour and the baking soda and beat at low speed just until evenly combined. Divide the dough in half and scrape it onto 2 sheets of plastic wrap. Wrap the dough, flatten into disks and refrigerate until firm, at least 3 hours.
  • Meanwhile, puree the raspberries in a blender for 5 minutes. Transfer the puree to a medium saucepan. Add the granulated sugar and bring to a boil, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Simmer over moderate heat for 5 minutes. Stir in the lemon juice. Strain the jam into a bowl through a fine sieve and refrigerate until chilled, about 4 hours.
  • Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper. Liberally flour a work surface. Roll out 1 disk of the dough 1/4 inch thick, flouring the dough and the rolling pin as necessary. Using a 2-inch round cookie cutter dipped in flour, stamp out as many rounds as possible (to be used as the bottoms of the cookies). Using a small spatula, arrange the rounds about 1/2 inch apart on the prepared baking sheets. Gather the scraps and pat into a disk. Roll out and stamp out as many more rounds as possible. Refrigerate until firm, at least 30 minutes.
  • On a large sheet of floured wax paper, roll out half of the second disk of dough, flouring the dough and rolling pin as necessary. Stamp out as many rounds as possible. Using a 1/8-inch round cutter, stamp out the centers of the rounds on the wax paper; remove and reserve the centers. (These rings will be used as the tops of the cookies.) Slide the wax paper onto a baking sheet and chill the rings for 30 minutes. Repeat with the last piece of dough. Gather the scraps and pat into a disk; chill if necessary. Roll out and stamp out more tops and bottoms, then refrigerate.
  • Remove 1 sheet of the cookie bottoms from the refrigerator and brush lightly with water. Using a spatula, set the tops on the bottoms; press lightly to help them adhere. Prick the centers of the cookies with a fork to keep them flat during baking. Refrigerate until chilled. Assemble the remaining cookies.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°. Brush the cookies with the beaten egg and bake in the middle and lower racks of the oven for 18 to 20 minutes, or until browned and the glaze is lightly crackled; shift the pans from top to bottom and front to back halfway through. Transfer the baking sheets to racks to cool.
  • Spoon the jam into the cookies and let stand at room temperature for at least 2 hours, or until set.

Raspberry Linzer Cookies image

This is a recipe from FC last year. These cookies are truly exceptional. The require some patience to make, but they are gorgeous when finished and delicious. Perfect for holidays or for a ladies tea, or perhaps to cheer up a friend...one of my all-time favorite cookies. The 4-hour prep time includes chilling time. EQUIPMENT: cookie sheets lined with parchment, food processor, plastic wrap, 2 cookie cutters of the same shape, one about 2 1/2-inch diameter, one about 1 1/4-inch diameter.

Time 4h15m

Yield 32 cookies

Number Of Ingredients 14

2 1/2 ounces sliced almonds (1/2 c.)
2 1/2 ounces coarsely chopped hazelnuts (1/2 c.)
9 1/2 ounces all-purpose flour (2 c. plus 1 tbl.)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons lemons, zest of or 2 teaspoons orange zest
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
7 ounces chilled unsalted butter (14 tbl.)
1 large egg
1 tablespoon cold water
1/2 cup raspberry preserves (or any other flavor you like)
confectioners' sugar


  • Several hours before baking: In a food processor, process the almonds and hazelnuts with 1/2 c of the flour until fine textured, but NOT powdered (To avoid overprocessing, stop the machine occasionally and feel the nuts; they may look like they are still chunky, but they may just be clumping together).
  • Add the remain flour and other dry ingredients along with the zest.
  • Pulse to combine.
  • Cut the butter into 1/2-inch cubes and add to the flour mixture; pulse until the mixture looks like coarse meal.
  • Don't overprocess.
  • Transfer to a large bowl.
  • Whisk together the egg and water; sprinkle over the flour mixture and toss gently to combine.
  • The dough should hold together when pinched (if it seems dry, sprinkle on a bit more water).
  • Gather the dough into two balls and knead briefly just to blend.
  • Wrap in plastic and chill until firm, 2-3 hours.
  • TO BAKE: Oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Cover your cookie sheets with parchment.
  • Generously flour a work surface.
  • Roll one ball of dough out 3/16" thick.
  • (Keep the rest of the dough in the refrigerator, and if the dough warms up to the point of being sticky while you are working with it, return it to the fridge to chill.) Cut as many of the larger shape as possible out of the dough, rerolling the scraps to make more rounds.
  • Arrange on the cookie sheets about 3/4 inch apart.
  • Use the small cookie cutter to cut holes in the center of half of the cookies.
  • Reroll these little scraps to make more cookies.
  • Bake the cookies until the edges are lightly brown, about 15 minutes.
  • Let cool on the pans before transferring to cookie racks.
  • Repeat with remaining dough.
  • To assemble, sift powdered sugar over the cookies with the holes cut in them, then spread a heaping 1/2 tsp.
  • of preserves on the bottom of the whole cookie rounds.
  • Sandwich the cookies together.
  • NOTE: These cookies should be served the day they are put together.
  • You can bake the cookies a week early, then sandwich them together a few hours before serving.
  • NOTE 2: The dough for this cookie is kind of a pain to work with, and it takes patience, but I promise you, the end result is so worth it.
