The sweet combination of almond cookie crust and raspberry jam is one that’s works in desserts year-round, but it’s especially nice during the holiday season in a batch of Linzer Bars. By adding a generous amount of toasted and ground almonds directly into the dough, you can be sure the almond flavor will shine, and nicely complements the sweet raspberry jam.

Fresh lemon zest gives the jam filling an added citrus zing before strips of chilled dough are arranged on top in a criss-cross pattern. Thanks to the nut oils and butter, the dough has a tendency to be quite soft. If you’re having a hard time with it, transfer it to the fridge for 15-20 minutes to let it firm up before continuing.
