Linzer Heart Cookies with Blackberry Miel De Cacao Jam:
2 ⅓ cups Bob’s Red Mill all purpose 1:1 gluten free flour or all purpose flour(If not gluten free)
¾ Cup blanched almond flour (skins removed)
¾ cup powdered sugar
½ tsp salt
1 cup cold, cubed butter or vegan butter

Miel De Cacao Blackberry Jam:
See blog recipe or use 1 cup of your favorite jam!
Combine all dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl. Add the cubed butter and gently rub into the dough with your hands or cut into dry ingredients using a pastry cutter.
Add the wet ingredients and form a ball.
Cut the dough in half. Keep the remaining dough covered. Use two pieces of parchment paper to roll out the cookie dough. Using a rolling pin, roll dough to about ¼ of an inch thick. Cut all of your cookies using a round cookie cutter. Then use a small heart shaped cookie cutter to cut out the center of half of the cookies.
Transfer the cookies to a parchment lined baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees F for 10-12 minutes. Transfer cookies to a cooling rack to cool completely.
Spread about a teaspoon of jam onto your round cookie then sandwich the heart cookie on top. Dust with powdered sugar and enjoy!
