    Yum! I've made Linzer Hearts before, but never a Torte. Looks very impressive, and reminds me of something that would have been served with Kaffee when I lived in Deutschland. It is a bit more involved than other dessert recipes might be, but not as complicated as I thought. An interesting crust, but it turned out very well. I did bake it in a tart pan and not a cake pan. That made it very easy to serve. I also had a little leftover dough that I used to make a little Nutella "Pop Tart" which was also very good.
