  1. you can make a mickey mouse cut out with your straw (3 holes) just like your apron. I’ve also seen current jam at Ross stores it’s the Scottish Mackay brand. As ever another great video.

    1. Thank you Ann 🙂 I do have a Mickey cutter and love it. 😉

  2. These were really good (and fun to make) 🙂 Made them last night with boysenberry jam for the fun of it and my family gobbled ’em down! Thanks for cookie recipe. 🙂

    1. Yay! Glad to hear how much you enjoyed them. 🙂

    I am so happy I found your website, I lost my maminka this year and although we have many of her recipes there are some we are missing. I am looking forward to making these Linecké for Christmas this year. I also wondered if you could also include the directions for all your recipes so that we could easily print out a complete copy. Thank you

    1. I am so sorry to hear that Lena! I hope my recipes will bring back wonderful memories! Just yesterday I published my Christmas Kindle Book I hope that helps!

  4. I just did these and it was the very first time I had ever successfully made them. I don’t even want to tell you about last time, however, I will say it was the last time I try to bake cookies with gluten free flour. Lol

    1. 😀 I don’t even attempt to try gluten free flour. 😀 I am glad to hear this time they turned out well! 🙂

  5. Are these cook books normal books to read or are they for the kindle or todays techmology. I want a normal cookbook . Thank you.

    1. Only electronic right now but will have printed one soon.

  6. Just a little technical one: you don’t have this recipe under the “Christmas” category.
    Otherwise — perfect!!! ❤️

    1. Thank you Martina! I just checked and I see it in Christmas category. I don’t have the Linzer hearts in Christmas category since I made it for Valentines. 🙂

  7. No, actually, it was my bad! You can find it under xmas cookies too, – I just didn’t notice it’s more than one page…
    Thank you for all your recipes, you are awesome!
    Wishing you the very best in 2019, Martina

    1. Thank you so much Martina! ☺️

  8. Hi, I can’t find your linzer hearts recipe 🙁 it was a bit different than this one. Is it no longer available? Merry Christmas!

    1. Thank you 🙂 Merry Christmas! Here it is:
      1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
      1 1/3 cups powdered sugar
      lemon zest
      2 egg yolks
      1 1/2 sticks of butter

  9. Something is wrong with the measurement of the butter, it is too much!

    1. All is correct with the measurements. Since I posted this recipe from 2014 everyone is having success. I actually just made the dough using grams and it worked perfect as always. Not sure what error you made. It may seems like lots of butter, but it isn’t. Works perfect!
