Ischl Tartlets
(Ischler Tortchen)
What You Need:
  • ½ pound plus 4 tablespoons (2½ quarter-pound sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1¾ cups ground almonds
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 5 tablespoons raspberry jam
  • Confectioners' sugar

  • How To Cook:
    1. Cream the butter and sugar together by beating them against the side of a bowl with a wooden spoon or by using an electric mixer set at medium speed, until the mixture is light and fluffy.

    2. Then beat in the flour, ½-cup at a time, the almonds and cinnamon, and continue beating until the mixture becomes a slightly stiff dough. Shape the dough into a ball, wrap it in wax paper or plastic wrap and refrigerate it for about an hour.

    3. Preheat the oven to 325°F. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough into a sheet 1/8 inch thick. With a 2½-inch cookie cutter, cut as many circles from the sheet as you can.

    4. Knead the leftover scraps of dough into a ball, and roll it out again into a 1/8-inch sheet. Cut out more circles. You should now have about 12 circles. Arrange them on an ungreased 14-by-17-inch baking sheet, leaving about an inch of space between them.

    5. Repeat the rolling and cutting process with the other half of the dough, but before placing the second batch on a baking sheet, cut out the center of each circle with a ½-inch cookie cutter. Bake both batches in the center of the oven for 10 to 15minutes, or until light brown.

    6. With a metal spatula, gently ease the cookies off the baking sheets onto a cake rack. Let them cool for about 20 minutes.

    7. Spread the tops of the solid circles with a thin coating of jam; lay a cutout cookie on top of each, pressing the two together so that they make a sandwich. Spoon a dab of jam into the opening of each tart and sprinkle the tops with confectioners' sugar before serving.

    To Make: 12 tartlets
