Recipe for the Season: Linzer Cookies

I have always wanted to make Linzer cookies. I see recipes for them each year, and every year I tell myself, “I’m going to make these.” And I never have.

Today I found the perfect cut-out with several attachments for the middle (heart, diamond, flower) and I cannot wait to bake a batch. I’m planning on using orange marmalade or I might buy raspberry jam.

Have you ever made these cookies? If so, what flavors have you tried? I’m thinking a chocolate one might be delicious, or even a pumpkin one?

Anyway, I hope you are enjoying your week so far, and have a wonderful Thanksgiving for those in the U.S. I cannot wait to make my pecan pie! I’ll share another family recipe here this week, and I’m sure you will love it.

Thanks for reading!


A Special Retro Rad Holiday Event with Emily Ellyn

My friend Emily Ellyn is hosting a fun retro (1960s! Mad Men!) holiday event here in three weeks, and I wanted to share with all of you! It sounds like an incredibly festive experience, and I’m sad that I cannot be there– but you guys should if you’re in the area.

For all the info you need about attending the event, you can check out more on her site:

And be sure to check out all the other retro rad stuff she’s got going on, including her 2013 Food and Fashion calendar, which I wrote about recently here.

Have a great night! I hope you all are doing well. 🙂
