1. Linzer Cookie.

A little Linzer love goes a long way! In honor of the holiday, we’re baking up these classic Valentine’s Day cookies through Sunday. Named after their hometown, Linz, Austria, these traditional tarts are made from two heart shaped shortbread cookies paired with organic raspberry jam and plenty of powdered sugar. They make such sweet little treats!
