I tried this one from Ina Garten: http://www.foodnetwo...cipe/index.html
It didn't work. The dough never really came together, and the cookie was dry and boring.

Any ideas?

“One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. 'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

Yeah, what's with Garten's? They're shortbread cookies, which by definition are boring, not dough for linzers. I haven't tried Melissa Clark's pistachio linzers, but I trust her.

For me good is good regardless of whether it is fashionable. -- mitchells, 23 June - 09:50 PM

I used to make one from Sunset's Recipe Annual 1988. Umm, it's been years. It had a cranberry filling and the crust included ground almonds (also some cocoa powder and orange peel). I recall it being good, but I'd likely defer to something more modern. Let me know if you want a copy.
