Sweet spitzbuben

This past weekend I decided to whip out a cookbook compiled of all of my grandma’s favorite go-to recipes. I specifically knew what I wanted to make but hesitated because of how time consuming they can be. And the fact that I’ve never actually made them by myself before…Enter the heavenly spitzbuben (pronounced: spitz-booben) cookies.

A German cookie usually baked around the holidays, spitzbuben (or Hildabrötchen or Linzer Plätzchen) are composed of your choice of jam sandwiched between two buttery, shortbread-esqe cookies. In my family we’ve always used a fluted diamond cutter and stick to either apricot, strawberry or raspberry jam.

Do you have any passed down family recipes that you enjoy making for your loved ones? I’d love to hear about them!
