Linzer cookies are most often filled with jam, but this year we’re decking the halls with recipe developer Erin McDowell’s festive chocolate-peppermint sammies.
“These are like cookie texture meets brownie flavor,” McDowell tells us. “The center is made by melting peppermint candies into cream, then using that to make a whipped white chocolate ganache that’s light and soft.” And while McDowell says you’re welcome to add a drop of food coloring to make the filling more vibrantly pink, it’s actually tinted pink on its own from the candies. (One less step for you.)
“When you bake the cookies, they’re crisp,” she continues, “but as they sit, they get softer, so when you bite into them, they stay together.”
Cookie logistics. They’re very important, guys.
