Linzer

20140106-122511.jpg

Did you know that the linzer torte is supposedly the oldest cake in the world? As old as 1696 apparently. It is named after the city of Linz in Austria. It’s filling is made out of almonds, jam and cinnamon (the perfect Christmas combo, don’t you think?).

I just ate a version of this dessert a couple of days ago and it tasted very good. It’s a shame that Christmas is gone already. But I’m thinking of doing a big tart based on the original recipe.

Enjoy your desserts!
