Austrian Nut Cookies


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup finely chopped almonds
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup seedless raspberry jam
  • 1 ounce unsweetened chocolate, melted and cooled
  • 1/3 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • Slivered almonds, optional


  • 1. In a bowl, combine flour, chopped almonds and sugar. Mix in butter until dough is just combined. On a floured surface, roll the dough to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut with a 2-in. round cutter and place 1 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • 2. Uncover and bake at 375° for 7-10 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool completely. Spread jam on half of the cookies; top with another cookie.
  • 3. For frosting, combine chocolate, confectioners' sugar and butter. Spread on tops of cookies. Decorate with slivered almonds.

    Very fragile cookies. Crumbs are excellent, but make Almond Nut Cookie instead.

    Very good! Everyone has liked them, even me... and I don't usually like nuts. We didn't use the chocolate frosting. Cut thick as these are very fragile cookies & if you want cookies instead of just crumbs, we found you have to be 3/8" thick.
