There's no better way to get in the Christmas spirit than baking some delicious Linzer cookies: so cute and festive! I wanted to make them as close to the original Linzer Torte recipe as possible, yet keeping it healthy and dairy-free.

This cake is originally from Austria, named after the city of Linz. It consists in a short crust made with ground hazelnuts, scented with cinnamon, lemon zest and other spices, filled with blackcurrant jam and topped with a lattice crust.

Any flavor or jam (raspberry, cherry, strawberry, etc) can be used to sandwich these cookies and you can also change the flour for other ground nuts like almonds or walnuts but this recipe I'm sharing with you is very yummy!
