These cookies are delicious exactly as written!!! I always top with a royal icing colored to match the occasion. I just made them with 3 different shades of pink icing for a baby shower.

Delicious, crisp, melt in your mouth cookies! An easy alternative to the more time consuming traditional Linzer cookies!

So light and fluffy! I will make these again
