These hazelnut linzer stars came from a Christmas cookie magazine that featured favorite cookies produced by the White House chefs during different presidential administrations. These were a favorite of Ronald Reagan and are simply wonderful! After baking the cookies, they are filled with apricot and raspberry preserves and dusted with confectioners' sugar.
My sons won't touch anything but plain chocolate chip cookies, silly boys, so if our guests don't finish these on Christmas Eve, I guess Lee and I will have to eat them. It's a tough job, but somebody has to do it . . .
