Here is a recipe we love:

Raspberry Linzer cookies

-1 1/4 cups powdered sugar

-1 cup plus 2 T. butter

-1 egg yolk

-1/2 tsp salt

-2 tsp vanilla

-2 3/4 cups flour

-raspberry jam for filling

-powdered sugar for dusting

  1.  Blend butter, egg yolk, sugar, salt, and vanilla with electric mixer until smooth
  2. Add the flour.  If mixture is too dry and crumbly add a tiny bit of water until it comes together
  3. Divide dough in half, shape into flattened disk, and put in fridge 2 hours.
  4. Remove dough from fridge.  Let it sit at room temp until slightly softened, then roll out on well floured surface, with floured rolling pin.
  5. Cut out bases and tops (make sure you have the same number of each!)
  6. Place on parchment lined baking sheets, bake at 350 for 12-13 minutes. Cool right on the pan.
  7. Shake powdered sugar on the cut out tops once they are cool.
  8. Spread jam on the bottom cookie.  Place sugared cut out on top.
