Cookie season is officially upon us people! After the last leftover turkey sandwich has been eaten and all of the dishes are finally done, it is time to bust out the rolling pins and fire up the Christmas cookie assemble line! Usually I spend a few days poring recipes from my many cooking magazines looking for edible gift ideas. This year I've some extra help from the TWD elves with the cornucopia of cookie recipes that have been selected for December. First on the list, Linzer Sables.
I used hazelnut meal in the cookie dough and filled them with Trader Joe's (highly addictive) lemon curd. The cookies came out light and crisp with a hint of spice and a satisfying zing from the lemon. Definitely a great way to kickoff cookie season!
