It may feel like the summer season is over, but it’s not official until next week. This recipe for Strawberry Lemon Linzer Cookies will help you remember your love of summer, strawberries, and lemons all year long!
I made these delicious lemon linzer cookies with the help of some awesome kitchen tools that I received from OXO. They asked for my help and I was more than happy to assist, not just because I love their products, but also because it gave me a chance to help raise some money for a very good cause. Cookies for Kids Cancer raises funds to help fight pediatric brain cancer.
Sadly, a long time employee of OXO lost her son to pediatric cancer, and that prompted OXO to create the Good Cookies project to raise funds for research. They will donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of specially marked tools, just like this one.
I would love for you to please visit the OXO website to see the complete list of products, then head to the store and pick up a couple to help the cause, AND because OXO kitchen tools really are amazing.
For every stickered item sold, OXO will donate 25 cents in support of pediatric cancer research as part of its $100,000* pledge to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. Look for specially marked OXO products at participating retailers in September.
Once you have those tools in your kitchen, you can feel good knowing that you’ve helped a great cause, and then can use them to create these yummi strawberry lemon linzer cookies and all will be right with the world!

Baking tips for the success of your strawberry lemon linzer cookies
– These cookies can be as large or small as you’d like them, but it’s important that you stay consistent with your sizes, so use of a cookie or biscuit cutter is suggested.
– The thinner you roll out the cookies, the crispier they’ll be and the faster they’ll bake, but they’ll also be more fragile and burn quickly. That’s why mine are big and thick! 🙂
– To dust the tops of your cookies and keep them nice and clean looking, it’s best to shake the powdered sugar onto them before you fill them. If you wait until they’re filled to dust them, you’ll end up with powdered sugar in your jam. The lemon linzer cookies will still taste delicious, but they won’t look as Martha Stewart-ish 😉
