Orange linzer cookies filled with jam – Narancsos töltött linzer keksz

One of the most versatile pastries, that always gives you good results, is the famous linzer.  You make the dough, you cut out different shapes from it, and then decorate them reflecting the occasion.  It can be a circle, a square with flouted edges, a heart, a star, a tree, or your favorite animal if you happen to have a cutter in its shape – anything you like, really.
