Modern Bakers are baking cookies, bars, and biscotti from the Modern Baker cookbook. The cookie dough uses ground up slivered almonds, cinnamon, and cloves which gives the cookie a nice flavor. They look much like a shortbread cookie would, but when you bite into them the nutty, cinnamon, and clove flavor makes the cookie really stand out.
These linzer disks were supposed to use raspberry preserves, but since I had blackberry on hand, I used it up. I love the little window and the confectioners' sugar finishing makes them so presentable. You'll want to drop by the neighbors with a few just so they can see you're pretty cookies.
