Better Linzer Cookies

This cookie is a modification of the traditional linzer cookie. To create the starburst effect, use a star shaped cookie cutter. You may use your favorite seedless jam for the center, but raspberry tastes especially good with the almond-flavored cookie. Happy Holidays!

Two Thumbs-Up Holiday Cookies

These cookies get two thumbs up in terms of nutrition!

Thumbprint cookies are a tradition during the holidays, but this one offers extra nutrients, lower fat and great flavor.

This recipe uses some ingredients that might be new to you. Spelt flour is available in small bags in the baking aisle at large grocery stores, and agave nectar is found at health food stores or online. (Some larger supermarkets might also carry it.) Agave nectar is a natural sweetener that has a lower glycemic index than sugar, but you can sub honey.

You may substitute your favorite low-fat granola cereal for the Ezekiel 4:9, but be sure the granola does not contain any fruit, which will affect the texture of the cookie. I used a Superfruit Spread from Trader Joe's, but a fruit-juice sweetened preserve will work just as well. Because spelt takes some time to absorb liquid, it is best to refrigerate this dough overnight.
