“Little Rascals” brings to mind the goofy gang of kids I used to watch on the tube on weekend mornings. These Little Rascals are jam sandwich cookies, though. Very much like Austrian Linzer cookies, this version’s made with walnuts. The dough comes together with a few zips in the food processor before it’s rolled and chilled. Actually, it’s so soft that it’s easiest to with it frozen. I decided to skip over my set of round cutters and reach for my knife to cut these rascals into rectangles. That way, it was one and done, and I didn’t have to deal with any scrap or re-rolling. I have some plum jam in the fridge and I used that here to make my sandwiches. These are sweet and nutty…crisp on the day they are made, softer the day after that, but both ways delicious.

For the recipe, see Dorie’s Cookies (it’s also here) by Dorie Greenspan. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the TWD Blogroll.

  1. Good tips and yours are SO adorable looking! I can’t wait to make these!

  2. They are delicious. You were wise to just cut your dough with a knife as users cutters was a nightmare with this dough. They are such delicious cookies though.

  3. Great idea about hand cutting and no re-rolling. Love the look of these! Don’t tell the gym guys what they are missing.
