that linzer (acel linzer)



(with English translation)
 For a long time a recipe from 1696 in Vienna Stadt was the oldest one known. In 2005, however, Waltraud Faißner, the library director of the Upper Austrian Landesmuseum found an even older Veronese recipe from 1653(in Codex 35/31 in the archive of Admont Abbey).Besides, the invention of the Linzer Torte is subject of numerous legends, reporting on a Viennese confectioner named Linzer  or the Franconian sugar baker Johann Konrad Vogel (1796–1883), who about 1823 at Linz started the mass production of the cake that made it famous around the world.The Austrian traveller Franz Hölzlhuber in the 1850s allegedly brought the Linzer Torte to Milwaukee, from where the recipe spread over the United States.
Now, you've got here a very Mala's version of this yummi, tasty, gorgeous linzer.....as my brain could imagine it...:))
