Baking Challenge

Viennese Whirls

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

Dark chocolate dipped Viennese Whirls, filled with vanilla buttercream and homemade cherry jam.

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

I didn’t realize how thick the cookie batter would be and ended up busting through three piping bags. I added a couple tablespoons of milk in hopes of making it easier to pipe and luckily, it worked!!

Tell us about how you added a Wisconsin twist.

I made the jam out of cherries, a Wisconsin staple! If only I had access to Door County cherries here in Australia 🙂

How did you do?

Rocked it.
