Linzer "linzer cookies came from the classic Austrian linzer torte"

B&W "black and white cookies are synonymous with New York bakeries, a place I would love to visit".

Miss C "so, I wanted to infused the classic linzer with the hustle and bustle of New York culture to bring you a... 

"Modern Infusion of Linzer and Black and White Cookies"
  • Instead of having the traditional fruit preserve filling I'm filling it with marshmallows (a nod to the new craze that swept New York, whoopie pies)
  • I'll be glazing the top cookie with chocolate icing"      

Makes 6 big cookies

Linzer cookie
100g         Unsalted butter
3/4 cup     Castor sugar
1/4tsp       Baking soda
pinch        Salt
1x             Medium egg
1x             Lemon zest
1.5 cup     Plain flour
20x           White marshmallows
Chocolate glaze 
120g          Dark chocolate
1/4 cup      Thickened cream 

  1. In a mixer, beat butter, sugar, baking powder and salt until combined. Add in the egg and lemon zest and combine. While the motor is running continuous add the flour until mixture starts to resemble a dough.
  2. Wrap dough in cling wrap and place in the fridge for 1.5~2 hours, or until dough is not sticky and malleable.
  3. Melt dark chocolate and thickened cream together over a pot of simmering water. Combine and place into fridge to thicken.
  4. Once the dough is ready, preheat oven to 170C, flour the kitchen top and roll out the dough to a thickness of 0.5cm. Cut with any shape you want. Just remember that you have to make the same number of bottoms and tops. The top cookies should have another hole, for example my star on the top cookie.
  5. Place the cookies inside and bake for 7~10 minutes or until it starts to brown slightly, allow them to cool. Now, place the marshmallows into an oven friendly bowl and place into oven. Remove from the oven once the top marshmallows start to brown. 
  6. Spread the top cookies with the chocolate glaze and the marshmallow mixture onto the bottom cookie, sandwich together.
