A traditional Austrian pastry, with apricot, raspberry, and almonds that are layered in a buttery, almond shortbread crust. Perfect for an afternoon tea spent reminiscing on your next or last Viennese adventure or jaunt to Linz. Fun Fact: The Linzer torte is said to be the oldest cake ever to be named after a place. For a long time a recipe from 1696 in the Vienna Stadt - und Landesbibliothek was the oldest one known. In 2005, however, Waltraud Faibner, the library director of the Upper Austrian Landesmuseum, found an even older Veronese recipe from 1653 in the archive of Admont Abbey.
