Karen from Niagara, WI (2017 Week 2: Cookies)




Niagara, WI

Baking Challenge

Viennese Whirls

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

Door County Whirls. Inspired by cherry jam purchased last week in Door County, we used it for the filling and added almond extract to the buttercream.

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

They are super tender and fall apart easily – wow! We made them gluten free, but I don’t think that negatively affected them. The cookie is so plain tasting that we definitely prefer them with the fillings! A beautiful European style cookie.

Tell us about how you added a Wisconsin twist.

We used cherry jam for the filling – straight from Door County!

How did you do?

Absolutely lovely.
