Valentine Linzer Cookies

  We often think of Linzer Cookies as just for Christmas. But these wonderful soft and tender almond butter cookies will complement any Valentine cookie platter. The subtle nutty flavor comes from the ground almond flour in the dough. The fruit fillings are enhanced by lemon zest. Raspberry is the traditional flavor for the filling….

      Hi Rhonda, They’ll taste OK. But as Kate says, the richness of the cookie is enhanced with the chili powder.ReplyCancel

    At Christmas I was thinking about modify8mg the springerle to be like Arty’s recipe.  To Rhonda, Arty’s recipe is amazing and if it’s like her recipe, it will be a favorite.  It just has a little warmth going down the throat.  No one tastes the chipotle, just lots of flavor!ReplyCancel

    Let me add that your choice of cocoa powder is essential.  I use King Arthur Dutch process and it the difference in taste is amazing!ReplyCancel

      Thanks Kate.
      However, we do want people to try this recipe even if they don’t have that particular brand.

      I’m making the recipe this afternoon with another brand that’s what I have on the shelf at the moment. I’ll keep a look out for the K.A. brand when I’m replenishing, based on your suggestion.

      Thanks again,

    I have cayenne powder. Can I substitute it? Sorry, I don’t know anything about these hot powders because I don’t like spicy food. But would like to try it to see if it enhances the chocolate flavor.ReplyCancel

      Hi Rhonda,
      We don’t recommend cayenne as a substitute for Chipotle chile powder for two reasons:
      1. Cayenne is 5-8 times hotter on the Scoville scale than Chipotle. It would overwhelm the cookie.
      2. Chipotle has a smokey flavor note that subtly enhances the chocolate in the cookie without being the star.

      In summary, cayenne does not play well in this cookie’s sandbox. Stick with the Chipotle powder. We think you’ll be pleased with the very subtle heat and the way the chocolate is enhanced. You could, of course, use less than what is called for, but we think you’d lose the overall effect.ReplyCancel

    Well, I have to tell you I had my doubts about this recipe…(chili powder is not something that I have EVER put in a cookie)..but, these are absolutely delicious!  They are my new favorite ultimate dark chocolate cookies!!  My family can’t believe they have chili powder in them, and I wouldn’t totally believe it myself (except for the fact that I put it in).  THANKS so much for sharing this wonderful recipe!ReplyCancel

    This is a really a great recipe! I’ve made them twice since this was posted and one of my friends commented this cookie goes really nicely with a glass of red wine.  I added an extra teaspoon of chipotle chili pepper for one of my friends who likes a lot of spice and they turned out perfect. I am sure I will be making these again.  Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful recipe!ReplyCancel
