For the Recipe
- 16 nos Oreo CookiesBuy
- 1½ cups Flour
- ¾ cup Ground walnuts
- ¾ cup Sugar
- 1 tsp Baking powder
- 1 tsp Ground cinnamon
- ¾ cup Butter cubes, cold
- 1 nos Egg
- ½ cup Raspberry jam
- ¼ cup White decorating icing
Take 10 Oreo Cookies. Crush them until they turn into fine powder. Place them in a large bowl.
Add the flour, walnuts, sugar, baking powder and cinnamon. Mix well.
Keep cutting the butter into smaller pieces as you stir it into the cookie mixture. Mix until the blend resembles coarse crumbs.
Add the egg. Mix until it gets the consistency of soft dough.
Make small balls out of the mixture. Press them slightly to make them flat.
Tightly wrap the balls in plastic wrap.
Refrigerate for 4 hours.
Take a 9-inch round pan. Line it with foil. The foil should extend over the sides of the pan. Spray cooking spray on the pan.
Divide the cookie dough in half.
Transfer the first half into the pan. Press it onto the bottom of the pan.
Spread the raspberry jam onto the pan dough. Ensure that there is ¼ inch distance between the jam layer and the edges of the dough.
Chop the remaining Oreo Cookies. Sprinkle them over the jam layer.
Lightly sprinkle some flour on a surface. Place ½ a cup of the remaining dough onto the surface. Roll it into 2 (12-inch long) ropes. Set aside.
Roll the remaining dough into 2 (9-inch) ropes, 4 (8-inch) ropes and 4 (7-inch) ropes.
Place one 9-inch rope on the centre of the torte. Place one 8-inch and one 7-inch rope on each side of the 9-inch rope. The ropes on either side should be placed at the same distance from the central rope. Repeat the process with the remaining dough ropes, placing them perpendicular to the ropes already on the cake to resemble a lattice.
Place both the 12-inch dough ropes, end to end, around the edges of the pan. Seal the top by pressing both ends together.
Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Heat the oven to 180°C. Bake the torte for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centres of the dough ropes comes out clean. Let it cool completely.
Use the foil handles to take the torte out of the pan. Drizzle the white decorating icing on top. Oreo Linzertorte is ready!
