Kimberly from Madison, WI (2017 Week 2: Cookies)




Madison, 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.

Rhubarb Jam Whirls. I used Mary Barry’s recipe for the whirls – very short bread-like. While I think I got the recipe correct – I don’t actually like them! Ha! Not the cookie for me, but it was fun to make.

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

Soft, soft, soft butter and chilling before baking is key.

Tell us about how you added a Wisconsin twist.

Had some locally grown rhubarb, so made some rhubarb jam for the filling. I wanted to keep it seasonal.

How did you do?

Pleasantly satisfied.
