Seeking raspberry linzer from childhood

ajh76 | Dec 3, 2011 11:11 AM

When I was a kid, my mom used to bring home the best raspberry linzer cookies at Christmas time. Her client, Peter Luger (may or may not help with geography), used to send them from NY but I never knew what the bakery was. We called them "linzer tarts" but I don't know if that's what the bakery called them. They were large, more shortbread-like than nutty and had a generous amount of seeded raspberry jam filling. I've been all over the net trying to track down what bakery they may have come from but have had no luck. Any suggestions for a bakery to check out? I'm also open to ideas for other bakeries that sell a similar cookie to those made in the good NY bakeries, that ship, so I can order some for the holidays. This was at least 20 years ago so it wouldn't be a new bakery. Thanks!
