More Holiday Cookies: Dusen Confecto

here’s another fun one from my Western Electric Christmas Cookie booklet, though the name is unfamiliar to me. I believe this is a sort of Linzer cookie without the cutout on the top layer. As a big fan of all things similar to kolackies, though, this sounds delicious to me!

2 1/3 cups sifted all-purpose flour

1/2 cup sugar

1/4 tsp. salt

1 cup butter

3/4 cup grated unblanched almonds

1 1/2 tsp. vanilla

1/2 cup currant or raspberry jelly

1/2 cup granulated sugar for coating

Sift flour, sugar and salt together into bowl; cut in butter with pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Blend in almonds and vanilla; work mixture with fingers until a ball of dough is formed. Roll dough thin on floured surface; cut with small cutter; place on greased cooky sheets. Bake at 350 F 8 – 10 minutes. Spread bottom of half of the cookies while hot with jelly; place another cooky on top sandwich fashion; coat cookies with granulated sugar. Makes about 7 dozen.

    My family makes these every year…. and we always have to triple the batch bc they are the favorite (out of 12 varieties)… lots of work to get them sandwiched and sugared while still hot, but worth every burned finger.
