Linzer Sables [TWD]

Gretchen Noelle

My love of food was cultivated early on by my family but has come alive while living in Peru. During the 12 years of living in Lima, Peru, I have also enjoyed numerous trips to other areas of the country. Here on Provecho Peru you will find Peruvian recipes in English, American favorites prepared overseas, news about Peruvian Cuisine and interesting tidbits about life in Peru.

    Come to think of it, I liked these cookies, but how could they beat alfajores? Beautiful, yes, and good with tea, but probably not the one I’d pick up in a cookie assortment. Yours look beautiful though. Happy travelling!

    well, grumpy would probably be right there with you in the “not liking field”. I however loved them. More for me I guess (like I need them! lol)

    I love these cookies! How can you resist a shortbread buttery cookie with jam and powdered sugar?

    Lovely presentation. Glad this group includes someone from Peru. A good friend in grad school was from Lima and told me lots about the wonderful food there.

    I’ve never had those. At least they’re pretty, even if they were too crunchy for you!

  18. sunita says:

    But, dear Gretchen, they do look so pretty…that alone would be enough to entice me :-)

  19. L*Joy says:

    It is alright to not care for them, although I echo everyone else that they are positively, perfectly, sweet looking. Excellent job!p.s. telling my blog to post “on a later date” never works for me either. sometimes i think i am just missing something obvious.
