Hot Pepper Jelly Cashew Heart Linzers

What way to celebrate red hot love this Valentine's day than making these heart shaped, beautiful Linzer cookies with a spicy center? 

These  cookies pack a big flavor punch. They are perfect forValentine's Day but you can change the shape and use them for any occasion. The only decorative limitation is what shape cookie cutters you have in your baking supply arsenal. 

Instead of the almond flour or meal traditionally used in these Austrian traditional cookies, I add the more mellow flavor of cashew flour to balance out the spiciness of the red pepper flavor. A teaspoon of chili powder added to the cookie batter also amps up the flavor.

For an extra decorative touch, sprinkle a bit of chili powder over the cookies, once you've arranged them on on a serving platter.
