Jam and Christmas baking

A variety of jams are most often used for gluing together the popular Linze sweets for Christmas cookies. But recipes for sweets with jam are much more diverse. It can be used for many other species, not only for gluing, but also for weeding. Those with intense flavors, such as currant, cherry or orange marmalade, are most often used. But you can use any one, it just depends on which one you like.

When baking, do not forget that marmalade is naturally sweet, so it is worth adding a little less sugar to the dough so that the result is not too sweet.
