Linzer Torte

Linzer Torte created by Arsenio

This is based on a Jacques Pepin recipe of the same name. It's an elegant and scrumptious dessert that's simpler to make than it looks.

directions

  • Combine the flour, sugar and ground almonds into a pile on a large workspace, then make a well in the middle of the mound.
  • Add the butter, egg yolks, vanilla extract, cinnamon and nutmeg into the well.
  • Knead the dry and wet ingredients with your hands until well-blended and the butter is thoroughly incorporated into the mix.
  • Prepare a springform pan by lining it with parchment paper.
  • Take roughly 3/4 of the dough and spread it all uniformly across the bottom of the springform pan. It should be at least 1/2 an inch thick, with a slight lip around the edges.
  • Combine the jam and brandy in a mixing bowl, then spread across the dough in the springform pan. The lip of the dough should still be higher than the jam; if not, use a little of the remaining dough.
  • Divide the rest of the dough into thin strips, and place them across the top of the dough, forming a lattice from edge to edge.
  • Bake the torte in a 375-degree oven for 35 minutes, until the jam is bubbling a bit and the dough is starting to turn golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven and let rest for 15 minutes.
  • Carefully peel down the edges of the parchment paper away from the edges.
  • Sprinkle the top of the torte with confectioner's sugar.
