Nicko bakes Linzer Torte -- one of the oldest cake recipes in the world

Cinnamon, cloves, hazelnut....add cocoa?  or perhaps lemon zest?   Ummmm!

At 1:48 Nicko places baking weights over parchment paper to keep the dough from rising.  I've never heard of these.  What might we use instead?  One reader suggests using rice, but notes that you can't cook the rice afterwards, so just save it in a jar to reuse next time you need baking weights.    

At 2:16  (Right after he mentions the second "egg wash")   Nicko says:  "And now, all we have to do is get stuck into this bad boy!"
