Linzer Tarts: Makes 20 ( 5 points +) Very fun for Valentine's Day!

  • 1 c. butter, softened
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 2-1/2 c. flour
  • 1 egg y+ 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • seedless, no sugar added raspberry jelly ( about ½ c.)
  • 2 tsp. powdered sugar

Cream butter and sugar together. Add vanilla and eggs. Mix flour with salt and gradually add to butter mixture until just blended. Form into a flat disc. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Roll dough onto a lightly floured surface 1/8" thick. Cut out with cookie cutter. Cut half of the shapes in the center with a smaller cookie cutter so as to form a "window". Bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely. Warm the jelly in a saucepan. Spread a small amount over bottom cookies. Top with window cut out cookie. You may need to add extra jelly to the window. Sprinkle with sifted powdered sugar.
