Linzer Sables, continued

When I last wrote about this week's Tuesdays with Dorie event, Linzer Sables, I hadn't actually tasted one yet, having only finished them late the night before and having made only four. It was twenty-four hours later that I finally ate one. Oh my goodness. They were so delicious! Maybe it was that 'ripening' period that did it, but these have to be one of my favorites from all the TWD recipes.

On Thursday, I baked off the rest of the dough. I ran out of the boysenberry jam, so went through my pantry to see if I had a likely candidate for filling the remaining cookies. I chose an apricot jam with hints of almonds and vanilla that I had purchased on my last trip to France. Don't you buy food as souvenirs? On that particular visit, I stayed in Tours, a wonderful French city. They have one of the best tea shops I've ever visited, and of course, the jams in another shop.

So, I'm just finishing off the last of the linzer sables with a French jam filling, and ready for the next batch of cookies, which is ready to be baked. I know for sure I will bake these again.

I felt the same way about these cookies. I loved them so much. They are not only cute, but taste DELICIOUS!

That's a glowing report!
Buy food as travel souvenirs? are you kidding? Who would do that? ;)

My husband used to be able to bring home food souvenirs, but with all the security these days, he's afraid it's just going to be confiscated. Apricot jam with almonds and vanilla sounds so wonderful.
