  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 2 sticks salted butter (8 oz)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • Powdered sugar
  • Raspberry jam


  1. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and cinnamon. Set aside.
  2. Attached the paddle attachment to your stand mixer and cream the butter and 1/2 cup of sugar, about 1 minute. Mix in the egg and the vanilla extract. Turn the mixer to low speed and add in the almond flour. Add the flour mixture and mix until combined.
  3. Form the dough into 2 even-sized balls, flatten each into a 6-inch round disk and wrap each one separately in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  4. Preheat the oven to 350F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Dust the work surface with some flour, roll out one dough into 1/8 inch thickness. Cut using a Linzer cookie cutter or a medium round or fluted cookie cutter for one dough. For the other dough, use a smaller star-shaped cutter to cut out the center. Carefully transfer to baking sheet. Assemble the cutouts and use up all dough.
  5. Place the cookie about 1-inch apart from each other on baking tray. Bake the cookies for 9-12 minutes. Let cool. Spread cookies with raspberry jam over the whole rounded circles, top with star cut out circles, and dust with powdered sugar. Store in an airtight container for up to 2-3 days.
