Fridays call for Chocolate Linzer Cookies that are topped with Sea Salt and are so buttery that they melt in your mouth. Such a perfect way to end the week. These Chocolate Linzer Cookies are a staple in my house, previously I made classic Raspberry Walnut Linzer Cookies that were gone by the end of the day. After that success I decided to spice things a bit and make Chocolate Linzer Cookies that to my delight were a grand success.

Cookies are definitely not for Christmas only, while they are festive and nice, I am that person who will gladly enjoy cookies daily with a hot cup of tea or coffee. To be totally honest, cookies make me happy, tiny, beautiful, packed with so much flavor, a cookie always makes me feel better.

I made these Chocolate Linzer Cookies with so much love, carefully crafting each one and brainstorming what fillings should I add. I decided on Sea Salt Dulce de Leche:

I loved the combo as well, chocolate and raspberry always go hand in hand, but if I have to choose a favorite I must settle on the Dulce de Leche one. With so many options and endless possibilities you can make the combo that speaks to you the most.

Recipe type: Cookies
Cuisine: American
Serves: 40 - 45
Ingredients
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 sticks (226 grams) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup cocoa powder
  • Sea Salt
  • ½ cup Dulce de Leche
  • Raspberry Jam
  • Blackberry Jam
  • Powdered sugar - optional
Instructions
  1. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, salt and baking powder and set aside.
  2. Using a stand or hand mixer, cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Add in the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition and making sure to stop and scrape the sides of the bowl with a spatula.
  3. Add in the vanilla extract and cocoa powder, mix well, stopping to scrape down the sides when needed. Slowly add in the flour mixture, and mix until smooth on low speed to avoid over mixing.
  4. Shape the dough into two - three discs, wrap in plastic and chill for at least two hours or overnight.
  5. When ready to bake preheat oven to 325F.
  6. Line baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  7. Remove the dough from the refrigerator (one disc at a time), sprinkle cocoa powder onto a counter and roll out one of the discs to ⅛ inch thick. If the disc is too hard, let it at room temperature for 10 minutes. Dust the Linzer cutter with cocoa powder and start cutting out the cookies, making sure you have equal amount bottom and top cookies. Using the center Linzer cutter, make center cut outs into the top cookies.
  8. Transfer cookies onto the prepared cookie sheets and place at least 1-inch apart, sprinkle with sea salt if desired. Bake for about 9 minutes until the edges are firm and the centers are just slightly soft and puffed.
  9. Remove from oven, let the cookies cool on the tray for 3-4 minutes and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Cookies must be completely cooled before assembling.
  10. Place about ½ tablespoon of raspberry jam, or blackberry jam, or Dulce de Leche in the center of one of the bottom cookies and place one of the top halves gently on top, gently press so the jam doesn’t spill out the sides of the cookie. Repeat with remaining cookies.
  11. Optional: before assembling the top cookies can be dusted with powdered sugar for the raspberry and blackberry version.
  12. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for one week or frozen for up to 3 months.
Notes
*Preparation time does not include refrigeration of the dough.
*Cooking time is higher, because I had to bake multiple batches.

  4. Oh man, so pretty! And those flavors! I think the dulce de leche would be my favorite, but obviously I want to try them all. Linzers are a cookie we make at Christmas too, but they’re definitely a labor of love – yours turned out beautifully! Oh and congrats on the blog birthday – I can’t believe you’ve only been doing this a year – so impressed!
