      Title: Raspberry-filled sandwich cookies (luxembourg
 Categories: Cookies, Swedish
      Yield: 1 Servings
 
  1 1/4 c  Blanched almond slices
           -(about 4 ounces)
      1 c  Powdered sugar
    1/2 c  Egg whites (4 to 5),
           -completely free of yolk
    1/2 c  Granulated sugar
    1/2 ts Cream of tartar
    1/4 ts Vanilla extract
    1/8 ts (scant) almond extract
           FOR THE RASPBERRY
           -BUTTERCREAM:
  6 1/2 tb Unsalted butter, slightly
           -softened
  1 1/4 c  Powdered sugar
    1/3 c  Seedless raspberry preserves
           -or jam
 
  FOR THE COOKIES:
  
  Heat the oven to 325F.  Line 2 very large baking sheets (or 3 smaller
  ones) with baking parchment. Toast the almonds in the oven, stirring
  occasionally, for 6 to 8 minutes, or until tinged with brown. Set
  aside to cool.  Reset the oven to 300F.
  
  Grind the cooled almonds and 1/2 cup of powdered sugar in a food
  processor until very fine but not oily. Thoroughly stir the remaining
  powdered sugar into the almonds.
  
  Combine the granulated sugar and 3 tablespoons of hot tap water in a
  small heavy saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring just to a boil,
  stirring. Cover the pan and boil for 1 1/2 minutes to allow the steam
  to wasu the sugar crystals from the sides of the pan.  Uncover and
  continue boiling, lifting the pan and swirling the contents
  occasionally, but never stirring, for about 1 minute longer until the
  syrup thickens, bubbles vigorously, and reaches the firm ball stage
  (240 F on a candy thermometer). To test for doneness without a
  thermometer, remove the pan from the heat and drop a small amount of
  the syrup into a cup of ice water; let stand for 10 seconds.  The
  syrup should form a firm ball when squeezed between the fingers.  Set
  the syrup aside.
  
  Beat the egg whites with an electric mixer on medium speed until
  frothy. Add the cream of tartar, raising the mixer speed to high.
  Continue beating just to soft peaks; turn off mixer. Return the syrup
  to the burner and reheat just to simmering.  With the mixer on high
  speed, immediately pour a thin, steady stream of syrup down the side
  of the bowl (avoid the beaters or whip as the syrup will stick) until
  all of the syrup is added. Add the vanilla and almond extracts.
  Continue beating until the mixture cools to lukewarm.
  
  Use a rubber spatula to fold the almond mixture evenly into the
  beaten egg whites.  Immediately drop the mixture from small spoons
  into 1-inch kisses spacing about 3/4 inch apart on the parchment
  lined baking sheets. (Alternately, pipe the mixture into 1-inch
  rounds using a pastry bag fitted with a plain or open star 3/8-inch
  diameter tip.) Place the pans staggered on racks in the center half
  of the oven. Bake for 19 to 22 minutes, reversing pans from front to
  back and switching racks about halfway through, until barely tinged
  and firm on top but still slightly soft inside. Let the pans stand on
  wire racks until the meringues are completely cooled.  Peel from the
  paper. Store aiftight until assembled.
  
  To prepare the buttercream:  Beat togather the butter, powdered
  sugar, and preserves until light and fluffy. Spread with a knife (or
  pipe using a pastry bag and tibe) small amounts of the cream over the
  flat sides of half the cookies.  Top with the r4emaining meringues,
  pressing together tightly. Store the cookies airtight and
  refrigerated for up to 24 hours; they will soften too much if left
  longer. (For longer storage, freze, tightly wrapped, for up to 2
  weeks; thaw just before serving.) Allow the cookies to warm up
  slightly before serving.
  
  Makes about forty 1 1/4-inch sandwich cookies.
