    Linky1's Note:

    Linzer Torte is a holiday classic in the Austrian, Hungarian, Swiss, German and Tyrolean traditions, often prepared for Christmas. The recipe for this rich dessert has been known since the late 1600s and is thought to have originated in Linz, Austria. A copy from 1696 can be found at the Vienna Stadt-und Landesbibliothek. In the 1850s, an Austrian traveler by the name of Franz Hoelzlhuber allegedly brought the Linzer Torte to Milwaukee, from where the recipe spread over the United States.

      Recipe worked well, and friends loved it! I suggest placing the dough to be cut into strips on plastic wrap, folding plastic wrap back over the top, and rolling out between layers of the plastic wrap. Place thee flattened dough in a refrigerator for an hour - maybe even in the freezer for the last 15 minutes. Also topped the lattice with Turbinado Sugar before baking.
