Linzer Cookie

My daughter loves to buy me all sorts of cutters, cake pans and whatever is related to baking. She bought these Linzer Cookie Cutters when she was in Washington DC for a business trip and i had to play with my toy as soon as i get it and i love adapting the recipe which comes with the cutter and this is a keeper recipe.

1 cup butter
2 cups sifted cake flour
1 tsp orange extract
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 jar raspberry or apricot jam

Mix butter, orange extract and sugar
Stir in 1 cup of flour at a time, mixing well (I put all the ingredients except the jam of course in a food processor and pulse until combined)
Chill the dough at least 2 hours
Roll out 1/2 of dough on cookie sheet to 1/4 inch thick and chill 30 minutes more.
Cut with linzer cookie cutter without an insert.
Remove excess dough and bake immediately at 350 f for 12 minutes.
Roll out other half of dough on a second cookie sheet and chill for 30 minutes.
Cut with the linzer cookie cutter with your choice of the 6 inserts in place.
Remove excess dough and bake immediately at 350 f for 12 minutes.
Cool completely.
Dust tops with powdered sugar.
Spread about 2 teaspoons jam on each cookie bottom.
Place tops over bottoms to create the sandwich effect.

i will always bake cookies on a lined tray with parchment/greaseproof paper and better still use the silpat/silicone liner for baking tray.
