In an effort to eat less sugar I went to the store and loaded up on fruit including these cuties/clementines. They tasted like candy and were so juicy and delicious I swore off baked goods forever.
Until I had the idea to turn them into a Linzer cookie.
I used this cute Easter themed Linzer cookie set for the cookies. You can use any shape cutters you have but if you want to make the cutout, you need one is several sizes smaller as well.
For the middle layer, I made curd out of those little orange jewels admittedly adding a drop or two of orange food color to brighten them up for their photo session. But you don’t have to. The flavor is bright enough.
Is it wrong that I like saying Cutie Curd?
Perfect for an Easter treat, these cookies were SO melt in your mouth delicious. I honestly could not believe how good they were. Usually when I serve something I’ve baked I’m all, “well I should or could have done this or perhaps if I did that.” It was unanimous among two dinner parties, one local gelateria staff and my work colleagues. These were perfection.
