How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine flour, sugar, hazelnuts, lemon zest, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, baking powder, and salt in small bowl. Add butter. Beat at low speed until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add egg and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed and dough forms a ball. Divide dough in half.

  3. STEP 3

    Press half of dough into ungreased 8-inch square baking pan. Cover with jam to within 1/2 inch of edge of pan. Roll out other half of dough between two sheets of lightly floured waxed paper to 11x10-inch rectangle. Cut dough into twenty 1/2-inch strips with pizza cutter or sharp knife, starting with 10-inch side. Place strips diagonally over jam to form lattice crust.

  4. STEP 4

    Bake 23-28 minutes or until jam is bubbly and edges of crust begin to brown. Cool completely. Dust with powdered sugar and cinnamon. Store refrigerated.

Tip #1

For ground nuts, use food processor or nut grinder.
