These are Linzer cookies. They can be a pain to make. I once made 12 dozen for my dear Mother so she could take them to a cookie exchange. In case you can’t tell, this is a sandwich cookie. That means 12 dozen X 2 = 288 cookies.

This time I only made about one dozen.

The funny thing with all my holiday baking is that I have barely eaten any of these cookies. I have kind of lost my sweet tooth these days. Perhaps I will have to make a savory cookie. A cheese cookie or something.

    I hope you have a very Merry Christmas! Any travel plans to navigate in the blizzardy weather?

    Well, I am supposed to fly to WA on Wednesday. Hopefully Sea-Tac can get its act together by then. Cross your fingers for me.
