Linzer cookies

I had never heard of this type of cookie before. I have eaten it, but I didn’t know that it had such a history. Linzer cookies are traditional Australian shortbread sandwich cookies with fruit preserves in the middle. They are traditionally cut in circles with the middle missing with black currant jam so that it resembles an eye. I was unaware of this when I was making mine to look like autumn with strawberry & raspberry preserves. Either way though, I think they tasted pretty good. These cookies are my husband’s favorite Contessa cookie so far. I think I need to work on the presentation of these cookies though, because some of you have done an awesome job of presenting your Linzer cookies.
