Today for the alphabet E , we will travel to the united kingdom to bake and taste these royal looking biscuits.An Empire biscuit is a sweet biscuit popular in the United Kingdom , Scotland. The biscuit was originally known as Linzer biscuit and after world war 2 , it was renamed to Empire biscuit. It is also called as the Double biscuit, German biscuit, Belgian biscuit etc.It has two layers of biscuits sandwiched with a layer of jam and topped with white water icing and a glazed cherry. Though it sounds very elaborate, it is pretty easy to make these delicious biscuits.Since the day this theme was announced, I have been bookmarking the recipes that I need to bake and these biscuits are from londoneats

Very tempting biscuits..My little one just saw this and went “amma, these look yumm, are you bookmarking?” πŸ™‚ I don’t have anything more to say, my boss wants them πŸ™‚

Linzercookies is in my to bake list for a long time. I even bought the Linzer cookie cutter (a year back) and still have not baked them. Now that I have a fool proof recipe to make, I will make them soon. Maybe even for this marathon. My L is yet to be baked πŸ™‚

These biscuits with jam filling remind me of Jim jam jelly biscuits . Till date I open these biscuits and take a lick of the jam , you are tempting me Veena ! Super choice for the alphabet .

These cookies look so gorgeous with all that butter! The jam filling is very tempting and I have the urge to lick it off the biscuit like a 3 year old!

Great choice! My first pick was to bake these but I have plenty sweet bakes lined up so I decided on a savory one. I am going to try this someday, bookmarked to try πŸ™‚

they look so pretty…it is the picture that i am hooked on to , the little crimson dot with light passing through it – mesmerising…loved the biscuits and the recipe too- u r on a roll
