I always loved the Linzer Tort cookies which consist of almond cookies filled in the center with jam. So while I am in the "jamming" mood, I came with this creation also. This was so easy to do. Just almond and date for the cookie. Flattened with a rolling pin or a glass jar. If you don't have a cookie cutter, you just turn over the glass and use the rim of the glass to cut out the cookie shapes for continuity. I used a rolling pin to flatten but couldn't find the right size cookie cutter so I used the glass rim to cut the cookie shape. The raspberry jam is the same recipe I used for the blueberry jam in the peanut butter cup. I decided to dehydrate the cookies so it would have a little more cookie feel and also not fall apart but it is not necessary if you do not own a dehydrator. The ratio I used for the cookies was 8 dates to 1 cup almonds. Preferably use organic almonds but all almonds including organic almonds in the US are irradiated because of a stupid law passed a few years ago. The best almonds are from Italy. Most raw food companies use Italian almonds. You grind the almonds first in a food processor. Then add the dates, chopped and pitted. I used large medjool dates but any dates would work. These are very gooey but the cookie does not need to be. It would taste good with other dired fruits too like apricot, etc. The jam is raspberries, raw honey and a little water to blend with 2 T chia seeds added after. You must allow the mixture to sit. I left it in the refrigerator overnight to thicken and scooped a little on oneIf you want to be more authentic you could make an indentation with your thumb in the middle of the top cookie and place a dollop of jam there. It was awesome!!!
