Chocolate Star Linzer Cookies

Imag1222

Next to cookies what Arthur likes best are my illustrations. He's probably my biggest fan; infinitely patient as I sit and draw when we are traveling together. This site would not exist without him. And he's an over-doer, so I made two kinds of cookies, not just one… These chocolate-lemon linzer star cookies like yellow stars in a dark sky are inspired by my astronomy friends at NASA Landsat (http://landsat.gsfc.nasa.gov/) and Universe Today (http://www.universetoday.com/).

Chocolate Cookies
3 c flour
3/4 c cocoa powder
1 tsp salt
1 c butter
1 c sugar
1/2 c brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla

Lemon Filling
Lemon curd and cream cheese, with a little yellow food coloring.

Chill dough. Roll and cut. Re-chill. Bake 10-15min at 325. Cool to room temp. Layer with filling.

Happy Valentines Day Arthur.

    Saw your stuff in Universe Today. Nice. And the cookies look simple enough and who can go wrong with chocolate. I will give them a try next week.
