Cherry Linzer Slices



I love a delicious tea time treats, and none more than delicious jam filled golden pastry in yummy slices!

Cherry Linzer Slices












Ingredients


  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 1 1/4 cups ground almonds
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Grated peel of 1 lemon
  • 155g soft table margarine
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup black cherry jam


In large bowl, stir together flour, almonds, caster sugar, cinnamon and lemon peel.  Add margarine and egg; beat with wooden spoon until dough forms a ball.

On lightly floured surface, lightly knead dough until smooth.  Wrap and chill until quite form, at least 2 hours.

Divide in half.  Press 1 portion with fingertips into base of greased, paper lined biscuit tin (let the paper hang over the tin so you can use as handles).  Spread jam evenly over the dough.

On floured surface, roll out remaining dough and cut into thin strips.  Arrange in lattice fashion, fairly close together, over jam.  Press edges to seal.  Chill for 30 minutes.

Bake at 180 degrees celsius until pastry is golden brown, 30 to 35 minutes.  Cool completely in tin on wire rack.  Lift from tin using paper handles, cut into slices.

Cocinar, comer y ser feliz,
Leticia
