Linzertorte (Gluten-Free)

Linzertorte -- or Linzer tart -- may be made into one large tart, several small ones or even sweet cookies. Whatever the presentation, what awaits your tastebuds is a light, crumbly, aromatic crust bursting with sweet berry filling!

Hailing from Linz, Austria, this dessert takes several forms today (especially in North America). You can make one large tart, several small ones or make them into cookies. I've seen it made into bars, as well. Any way you slice it (pun intended) what awaits your tastebuds is a light, crumbly, aromatic crust bursting with sweet raspberry or black currant filling!

Linzertorte (Gluten-Free)Gluten-Free Tart Ingredients:
½ cup unsalted butter or non-dairy alternative (e.g. Earth Balance Buttery Sticks), room temperature
2/3 cup lightly packed brown sugar
1 large gg
½ cup toasted almonds, ground*
1 ½ cups Jules Gluten Free All Purpose Flour
1 tsp. gluten-free baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. salt
confectioner's sugar for dusting

*Toasting Almonds: Spread ½ cup raw almonds on an ungreased baking sheet, and toast in an oven preheated to 350 F for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown, aromatic and not burned.

Filling Ingredients:
1 cup fresh or frozen and thawed raspberries
1/3 – 1/2 cup seedless raspberry jam

Directions:
Beat butter and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add in egg and cream. Slowly stir in the dry ingredients: ground almonds, Jules Gluten Free All Purpose Flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Mix until thoroughly incorporated. Shape dough into a disc and wrap tightly with plastic wrap. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, or until cold and no longer sticky.

Preheat oven to 375 F (static) or 350 F (static).

Pull off pieces of cold dough and press into the bottom and up the sides of a large tart pan (9-inch) or 4 small tart pans with removable bottoms.  The dough will rise when baked, so keep this layer of dough thin. Prick bottoms with a fork in several places to prevent bubbles from forming in the dough. Bake tart pan(s) for 12 minutes then remove to a cooling rack.

With remaining dough, roll out onto a clean surface or baking mat lightly dusted with Jules Gluten Free All Purpose Flour or cornstarch. Roll to the thickness of a graham cracker – approximately 1/8 - inch thick. Use small cookie cutters to cut out shapes like hearts, circles, stars, leaves ... if using small tart pans, use miniature cookie cutters; if using one large tart pan, the cutters can be 1 - 3- inches.

Place cut out cookies onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet and bake in still heated oven for 5-8 minutes, depending on the size of your cookie cutters. Remove cookies once golden brown but not crispy. Set out to cool on a wire rack.

Meanwhile, spoon jam and berries into a small saucepan and warm over low heat, stirring until thinner and pourable. Once warmed, spoon jam over the centers of each tart, creating a 1/8 – inch thick layer of jam and berries. Return tart(s) to still heated oven and bake for another 10-12 minutes for smaller tarts, 20-25 minutes for a larger tart. Arrange cookies on top of cooked, filled tart and dust with confectioner's sugar before serving.

Note: This recipe may also be used for making Linzer Cookies instead, by cutting cookies with a larger cutters and cutting one small hole in the center of every other cookie. Bake according to cookie directions above. When cooled, spread each cookie without a hole cut in the center with the raspberry filling; top with a cookie with a hole cut out. Dust with confectioner's sugar before serving.

you're lucky you dont catch colds. im the opposite i catch everything very easily and get alot sicker than whoever i caught it from and take much longer to get better.

Even one positive can be diagnostic. This is one: Gliadin deamidated peptide IgG 33.9. If unsure, a biopsy of the small intestine will provide definite confirmation. There is a control test to validate the other ones, but I don't see it there. What is does is validate the others by checking on the overall antibody levels. But it is to detect possible false negatives. A positive is a positive. I think your daughter has joined our club.

My daughter, almost 7 years old, recently had a lot of blood work done, her Dr is out of the office, but another Dr in the practice said everything looked normal. I'm waiting for her Dr to come back and see what she thinks. I'm concerned because there is one abnormal result and I can't find info to tell me if just that one test being abnormal means anything. The reason for the blood work is mainly because of her poor growth, though she does have some other symptoms. IgA 133 mg/dl Reference range 33-200 CRP <2.9 same as reference range Gliadin Deamidated Peptide IgA .4 Reference range <=14.9 Gliadin deamidated peptide IgG 33.9 Reference range <=14.9 TTG IgA .5 Reference range <=14.9 TTG IgG <.8 Reference range <=14.9

Just watch out. I just went to the expo in Schaumburg, IL, and ended up getting glutened. I realized afterward that I ate all these samples thinking they were gluten free, and they weren't. One company was advertising some sugar, and had made some cake, but then I realized.... How do I know if this contains any other ingredients that might have gluten? Did they make it with a blender or utensils that had gluten contamination? Makes me realize the only safe things would be packaged giveaways with gluten free labeling. My fault for not thinking things through. It was just too exciting thinking i could try it all and enjoy without worry.

No fasting required for a celiac blood test unless they were checking your blood glucose levels during the same blood draw.
