So since I sipped down the caffeine-free Dessert by Deb pouch I had open, I felt I was allowed to open a different one. I chose this on a whim, because it sounded good and I knew I would be opening it for a swap soon anyway. This is from Deb’s recent Holiday Cookie Swap Party collection.
I confess, I’m not sure I’ve ever had a true linzer cookie? I mean, I’ve had sandwich cookies with jam, but I’m not sure if they counted. Some recipes I saw had spices in the cookies and some didn’t, so I don’t know if that’s a requirement.
Anyway! I definitely get cookie from this. There’s a light cinnamon note and an oat-y flavor that together remind me of oatmeal cookies. The maple flavor and sweetness helps as well. I don’t really get the jam part though – the closest thing is a tart apple note that lingers at the back of my throat after each sip.
So it’s not quite a linzer cookie for me, but it is a tasty oatmeal cookie! And I’m quite happy with that, ha ha…
