I had the best Linzer cookies at the Java Hut in Vancouver, Canada, when we lived there last year. I was hoping these would be a good replacement for them now we're home - and they do come close. They were very tasty. The lemon, cloves and almond made a real impact and stood them apart from other normal cookies.
I have to admit that there was a lot of work involved. Not in the making of the dough (which is a breeze if you have a dough-hook on your food processor), but in the cutting out of the cookie shapes (I was trying to go for the Vancouver format), the spreading of jam, topping with the cut out layer and glazing with icing. I think for that reason I will probably not make them again, but will savour the memory of my Canadian Linzer cookie experiences.
