    Raspberry-Almond Shortbread Cookies
    http://bakedchicago.typepad.com

    24 raspberries
    1/2 cup black currant liqueur
    1/2 cup raw almonds with skins, divided
    1/2 cup all-purpose flour
    1/2 cup whole wheat flour
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup butter, room temperature
    1/2 cup powdered sugar, sifted
    1 large egg, lightly beaten

    Grind 3 tablespoons almond in processor until finely ground. Finely
    chop remaining almonds. Whisk all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour
    and salt in medium bowl. Using electric mixer, beat butter and sugar
    in large bowl until creamy, about 2 minutes. Add ground almonds, beat
    until well blended, about 1 minute. Beat in flour mixture on low
    speed just to blend.

    Scrape dough onto sheet of parchment paper. Using paper, form dough
    into log. Brush dough all over with egg. Scatter chopped almonds on
    sheet of plastic wrap. Roll log in almonds to coat. Wrap in plastic
    wrap and chill at least 2 hours.

    Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Let dough stand at room temperature 10
    minutes. Unwrap dough and cut into 3/8 inch thick slices. Place
    cookies on large ungreased baking sheet, spacing 1 inch apart. Place
    1 raspberry in center of each cookie.

    Bake 10 minutes. Press raspberries into cookies. Rotate baking sheet
    in oven and bake until cookies are lightly golden and slightly puffed,
    about 18 minutes longer. Cool cookies on sheet on rack 5 minutes.
    Transfer cookies to rack to cool completely.

    These sound very flavorful. I momentarily wondered why the recipe
    calls for currant liqueur and not raspberry liqueur, but then I
    remembered that currants and raspberries are divine together. (I
    have only tried red currants with them though.)

    I wondered what you did with the liquer, and I still don't
    see what. Doesn't mean it's not right there in black and
    white, I'm just not seeing it. Soak the raspberries, I guess?

    Heh! I totally missed that little point. Maybe you drink it!
    :-) Or what would happen if you brushed the cookies with it before
    they were returned to the oven?

    Not as flavorful as I thought, I guess.

    Well, I adore Linzer tort, so it sounds perfect to me, with or
    without the liqueur. Raspberries, almonds, it's all good to me.

    Since you seem to be here to answer questions, what do you do with
    the liqueur?

    That would actually be a fun thread. Find the ingredient not mentioned in
    the directions, and make one up for it. Could be educational.

    Or maybe I'll just try this interesting-sounding flavor combo in
    something else.
