We love Viennese whirls - they are so yummy & melt in the mouth 😍 if you fancy a spot of baking today (good for kids to make too!) I've added the recipe below 💕
250g v soft butter
250g plain flour
50g sifted icing sugar
1 Tsp vanilla paste (or extract) •Preheat the oven to 190C or Gas mark 5
•Line a baking sheet with greaseproof paper.
•Pop the butter, plain flour, cornflour, icing sugar & vanilla paste in a mixer and blend until smooth. •Spoon the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a 2D nozzle. •Pipe rosettes of the dough, spacing well apart.
• You can put them in the fridge at this stage for 15 mins to try and hold their shape better if not they will still look good ☺
•Bake for about 15 minutes or until pale golden-brown and firm. •Cool on the baking tray
For the buttercream filling I use the following:
100g softened butter
150g sifted icing sugar(or extra to taste if you like your buttercream v sweet!)
1/2 tsp vanilla paste (or extract)
•Put the butter & icing sugar into your mixer (or a bowl) Add the vanilla paste and whisk until very light and smooth - I normally do this for at least 5 mins!
Spoon into a piping bag with a 2D nozzle.
•Pipe buttercream icing onto half of the cooled biscuits •Spoon a little jam of your choice & sandwich with another biscuit •Dust with icing sugar & tuck in! 💕
