Cranberry Cornmeal Linzer Cookies Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2014
The filling is great, wonderful color for the season. The tartness perfectly offsets the sweet sugar cookie. Therein lies the problem. The dough is simply a sugar or filled cookie dough with cornmeal in it. I have lots of recipes for those. Five stars for the filling, 2 for the dough. PS I put a teaspoon or filling on the cookie before baking, moistened the edge with egg wash, topped with the cutout, pressed down the edges with a fork, egg washed the top and baked at 375F for 10 min total. I live at 5000ft.

I pressed the dough into mini cupcake pans, then put in a scoop of the cranberry filling. Delicious! I had to make some plain dough cookies because there wasn't enough of the cranberry filling. I might try stuffing the cavities with a mix of cranberry sauce and whipped cream on Christmas Eve! Love the recipe!

My daughter-in-law loves these type of cookies so we made one batch together. We should have doubled it as these were yummy! We used seedless raspberry jam (microwave for 15 seconds before spreading on the cookie). Don't bake until brown but follow the recipe! Came out perfect, not too sweet. We forgot to "finish" them with powdered sugar but will next time I make these for my family.

Changed nothing! Totally genius to sub corn meal for usual hazel nut in linzer tortes. The cranberry filling is delicious and tart, or you could use the traditional raspberry jam filling, a bit sweeter and also delicious.Great recipe!

This is A CRANBERRY LOVER'S DREAM! I had never used cornmeal in a cookie recipe before so I was curious as to how it would taste. The cookie was so delicate and with the burst of cranberry filling it was just divine! My only change was to sprinkle the finished cookie with confectioner's sugar. Larkspur, you really out did yourself on this one! Thanks for sharing!
