Linzer Cookies with Peppery Orange Marmalade

60—90 Min

Crumbly Linzer cookies just like grandma's, refined with a peppery orange marmalade. Combined with the finest sugar, the genuine bourbon vanilla adds a heavenly, mildly aromatic flavor to the cookie dough. However, the real star of the show is the orange marmalade with a peppery kick.
