These Gluten Free Linzer Tart Cookies are a scrumptious take on a classic. Filled with raspberry preserves and a thick layer of chocolate, they are sure to please everyone.
Last week my friend, Lisa, over at Good Grief Cook, posted an interesting article. She addressed the issue of whether or not internet recipes are well tested before publication. After a friend of hers had tried a blogger’s recipe for lemon cake that was riddled with issues, her “failure” turned into a mission for my friend. She worked to create the perfect lemon cake, one that was tested through and through. You can check out her results.
When eggs were part of my cookie recipes, my kids were always quite cautious about indulging in raw cookie dough. I’m not sure where this timidity came from…certainly not from me. I have always felt it my duty, call it a “service to my family”, to test out the dough. Worry about raw eggs? Not me. I figured if Rocky could down raw eggs, then surely I could swipe some cookie dough and survive unscathed.
My family loves the winter, but living in the Northeast sometimes means cold and occasionally bone chilling temperatures. My husband works outside nearly all day. When he arrives home, thoroughly chilled to the core, there is little that hits the spot better than a hearty, piping hot bowl of soup.
I’ve never been a big fan of desserts. I do love, I mean love, cookies, but desserts such as cakes, pies, and pastries, really do little for me.
However, (isn’t there almost always ‘however’), I do have a weakness for cheesecake bars. If you’ve never tried any one of the gazillion variations on cheesecake bars, well, you must. The base crust is topped with a simple cheesecake filling, then finished with crumbs….huge, sweet, delicious crumbs. Everything is baked to perfection, then chilled. For me, these are the perfect dessert.
