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.
