Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Grind the almonds and hazelnuts. Then add the ground nuts to a bowl. Add the flour, salt, cloves, cinnamon, lemon zest, light brown sugar and butter. Use a pastry blender or two knifes to cut the butter into the other ingredients until crumbly.
  2. When you have a crumbly mixture, add the egg. Use your hands to knead into a dough. When you can form the dough into a ball, wrap it in clingfilm and leave to rest in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat the oven at 175 °C / 350 °F.
  4. Take about 2/3 of the the dough and press it into a 10 inch baking tin (26 cm). Make sure you fully cover the bottom and have a nice, thick edge of roughly half an inch (1 cm).
  5. Add your jam to the torte, make sure to fully coat the bottom.
  6. Cut the remaining dough into strips. Add the strips to the torte and make a nice lattice pattern. Brush the dough with some egg yolk.
  7. Decorate the Linzer Torte with some thinly sliced almonds and bake in the oven for 45-60 minutes.

Please note that the cup measurements in this recipe are approximate. I have added cups for those that prefer using cups. The recipe is most accurate using weights measurements.
