Baking Challenge

Viennese Whirls

Give your cookies or gingerbread creation a name based on the flavors and decoration – and tell us about your recipe.

And We’re Hooked

Now that you survived this challenge, what words of wisdom do you have to share?

The cookies themselves are not that sweet, so it wasn’t a giant leap to make the fillings savory.

Tell us about how you added a Wisconsin twist.

We really wanted to think outside the box, so we used Hooks 7 Year Cheddar World Champion Cheese, for a buttercream and topped it with a homemade tomato jam for a savory twist. We suspected that we might be the only ones to take this cookie into the savory side. Because we all know what a traditional buttercream tastes like, we wanted to do something more adventurous. In the end, the tomato jam was the perfect match.

How did you do?

Absolutely lovely.
