Healthy Linzer Cookies

Healthy Holiday Dessert – Refined sugar-free Linzer Cookies

The first time I was tasted Linzer cookies in Austria, I was in love. I knew I had to make them at home and when I bake something, I must find a healthier way to do it. So here’s my efforts to making a healthier version of the very popular Christmasy holiday dessert – Linzer cookies. They taste wonderful (though not quite as rich as the original recipe calls for) but that’s okay since we’re looking for a healthier alternative. This healthier version sure is delicious enough to serve to your guests and your own family this holiday season.
