Linzer torte
5
1 Review.
A classical homemade Linzer Torte named after the town Linz in Austria. It is made with a Pie bottom and decorated with dough stripes in a nice criss-cross pattern. The most common jams to use for this cake are black currant raspberry, or strawberry. The crust can be made with almonds or hazelnuts and that's why the crust can be found in different colours.
