February 11, 2008

Been eye-ing on this recipe for sometime already~ 😛 Viennese Whirls? According to the ingredients and description, it sounds like butter cookies to me! y is it called Viennese Whirls? I asked Mr Google, and answer was it was a cookie originated from Vienna >.< it doesnt matter as long as it is delicious! 😛 really love butter cookies, esp those blue tins Danish butter cookies… Delicious! Got this recipe from Café of the East *drool* buttery, melts in your mouth cookies~ definitely sounds attractive to me! *grin*

Assignments, project and exams are all rushing in~ =/ *double sigh* will not have the time to bake as much as before. In fact, i was pretty determine to NOT bake anymore unless for special occasions. hee~ well, this is definitly for someone special! (^^,)

50g corn flour
Some glazed cherries, quartered (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 160 Degrees C.
  2. Cream butter and icing sugar until pale and fluffy.
  3. Beat in vanilla Essence
  4. Fold in both flours.
  5. Pipe cookies into desired shapes on baking tray; place a quartered cherry in the centre of each whirl as decoration.
  6. Chill the piped cookies in the refrigerator, uncovered, for about 20-30 minutes before baking.
  7. Remove from the refrigerator and bake immediately for about 20 minutes, or until light golden brown in color.
  8. Cool on wire rack, and store in airtight containers.


Melts in your mouth!! 😀
Comparing the ingredients used, it is similar to butter cookies I did previously. But i personally felt this Viennese Whirls tasted better! more yumilicious!
