The Extra Ingredient That Makes These Linzers Super Special
Rose-scented raspberry jam makes these nutty, just-sweet-enough cookies extra special. My parents used to have loads of berries growing in their backyard. Every spring and summer, we ate them fresh by the handful, baked pies, and made a batch or two of jam. The smell of jam cooking is like no other. It's so sweet and sticky and somehow still fresh. It wasn't until I moved away from home, and away from the Northwest, that I realized just how special those berries were -- deep red and juicy, so flavorful when warm from the sun. What a gift..
