Linzer Heart Cookie Recipe

This is one of my favorite cookie recipes! So, I want to share this linzer heart cookie recipe with you.

I am joining 4 other blogger friends for a virtual Galentine’s Brunch this week.

Galentine's Brunch Tablescape

We are all sharing a tablescape idea and a recipe for the brunch. I shared how I made these heart sweater placemats a few days ago. And, I also shared the directions for folding these cute napkins into an envelope shape.

My contribution to the meal is dessert, and I thought these heart shaped cookies would be perfect!

If you are popping over here from Stacy at Bricks ‘n Blooms, welcome! I hope you enjoyed seeing her delicious quiche recipe.

Do you remember Victoria magazine??

I had a subscription to that magazine for years, and loved it. I was so sad when they stopped printing it!

Anyway, I found this linzer heart cookie recipe in that magazine in the 90’s. Yes, you read that right, the 90’s.


2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup confectioner’s sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, cut up and softened
1/4 raspberry jam (seedless)
confectioner’s sugar for garnish


In a food processor, combine flour, 1/2 cup confectioners sugar and salt. Process until blended.

Add butter. Process with on/off turns until mixture is like coarse meal. Process until dough pulls away from bowl and forms a ball. Wrap and refrigerate 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. On well floured surface, roll out the dough to 1/8 inch thick.

Cut dough into heart shapes with 3-4 inch cutter. Place cookies on baking sheet. Using a 1-2″ heart shaped cutter, cut out centers of half the cookies.

Bake at 325 degrees for 13-16 minutes, until lightly browned. Remove from baking sheet and cool on racks.

Spread each solid cookie with raspberry jam. Sift confectioners sugar over heart shaped ring cookies and place them on top of jam topped cookies.

Although the cookies look a bit detailed and complicated, they are actually fairly simple to make, and make a beautiful dessert.

The fun thing about this recipe is, you can try any shape. You just need a larger cutter for the cookie and a smaller cutter for the centers.

These would be fun for any holiday or event!

I hope you enjoyed this recipe idea, and if you try it, I would love to hear about it!!
