"When it's time for a bird to pie, when it's time for a bird to pie”

This is a variation on a traditional linzertorte. Typically, a linzertorte would contain almond flour in the crust and wouldn't have Chocolate in it. But, we're jamming on this pie like the 22-minute Radio City Music Hall “Red Bird.” Our tart will have a shortbread crust, in addition to dark chocolate and a little lemon to brighten everything up, like a red bird singing its song.

I know you will be tempted to eat this straight out the oven, but I warn you...that jam is going to be hotter than Fred Fest, so please, just let it chill for a few minutes. Don't forget to post your creations and tag @theelgoosetimes and use the #hotteainrickskitchen

* I would encourage everyone to make your own but raspberries are upwards of $8/pt at the time of writing this and it would probably take 3 or 4 pints to make enough jam and I don't know about you, but this guy needs to save some cash for the next Goose tour. In conclusion, Smucker’s Red Raspberry Preserves is the GOAT for this type of stuff. With seeds. Raspberry jam without seeds is like listening to the studio “Arrow” with out all the indie groove, afrobeat, jazz horns and such...sad.
