Our family has their favorite cookies which get baked year after year.
And that’s a good and wonderful thing.
But every now and again, it’s good to add a new twist to the usual routine…am I right?

And if I’m TOTALLY HONEST…this Linzer cookie recipe was made pretty much because I wanted to use my new Linzer Cookie Cutters. That’s OK, isn’t it?
I mean, how do you not love a little window in a little cookie through which you can view the luscious filling.
But then, baking Linzer cookies became a non-negotiable when an email arrived in my inbox a couple of weeks ago.
It was an email from one of my favorite canners, Marisa from Food in Jars and the recipe she was sharing was for Pear Vanilla Caramel Sauce. I swear divine intervention was responsible and it was clearly destined that this sauce should be the filling for my Linzer Cookies.
I’m telling you, it’s that Kismet thing again!!!
A lightly spiced gingerbread cookie was what I envisioned pairing with Marisa’s Pear Caramel Sauce.
For whatever reason, I have always felt that pear and gingerbread were made to go together. Is that a real thing or is it a pairing I’ve made up?
So I took a classic Linzer cookie recipe and altered it by substituting dark brown sugar for granulated sugar and by adding those great, warming spices of cinnamon, ginger, allspice, and nutmeg.
These lightly spiced and slightly sweet Linzer cookies are the perfect foil for the rich and flavorful Pear Caramel Sauce.

For best results, bake, cool, and then freeze the Linzer Cookie tops and bottoms. Defrost them and then fill with the caramel filling.
