Aug 23, 2012 Linzer My wife and I took an Austrian baking class the other day, and we learned how to make Linzer Tortes and Linzer Cookies. The sweet treats came out pretty well, and I have a feeling we will begin making these yummy goodies during the holidays. Perhaps it will be a family tradition. I am a self proclaimed cookie monster. My wife prefers European pastries and deserts over cookies. I wonder what my son will crave? Hopefully it will be both!
