This gorgeous Flower Linzer Tart, made with premium Tuscanini fruit preserves, is the perfect addition to your Shavuot kiddush or can be used as a beautiful showstopping dessert. 

You Will Need:

Any cookie dough recipe (see below for the one I used)

Tuscanini Strawberry, raspberry, and apricot Premium Italian Preserves

Confectioners’ sugar

Tart pan

Assorted flower cookie cutters

Small round cookie cutters


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

2. Press part of the cookie dough (see below for the recipe I used) into the tart pan. Use a fork to prick the dough.

3. Meanwhile, roll out the remaining cookie dough and cut assorted flower shapes. Use small round cookie cutters to remove some of the centers of the cookies.

4. Bake pie crust for approximately 15-20 minutes until it is slightly brown.

5. Bake cookies 12-15 minutes.

6. Allow cookies and pie crust to cool.

7. Fill confectioners’ sugar shaker and sprinkle cookies with confectioners’ sugar.

8. Using a spoon, spread jams into pie crust in your desired pattern.

9. Place cookies on the pie.

(Tip: Arrange the cookies in the pie crust before spreading the jam to figure out your pattern. Remove and fill with jam and then return cookies to the pie.)
