Baking Challenge

Viennese Whirls

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

Delectable Raspberry and Blackberry Viennese Whirls. I used Mary Berry’s recipe and modified it. I used milk and almond extract for the biscuit. Almond extract was used in the filling and I used homemade seedless raspberry and blackberry jam for the filling.

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

I had fun making the Viennese Whirls. If I can do it, so can you.

Tell us about how you added a Wisconsin twist.

I used butter and milk from Wisconsin. The raspberries and blackberries were from our land in Wisconsin.

How did you do?

Absolutely lovely.
