Vegan-nese Whirls

This recipe is adapted from my friend Suzie’s post http://suziemakes.blogspot.co.uk/2012/08/viennese-whirls.html

Shortbread ingredients

250g vegan margarine (I used vitalite)

few drops vanilla extract

50g icing sugar

50g cornflour

250g plain flour

(you can halve the ingredients if you like but you won’t make enough…)

Filling

4 tablespoons raspberry jam

50g vegan margarine

100g icing sugar

few drops vanilla extract

I’m currently food processer-less so I started by whisking the margarine, vanilla, sugar and cornflour with an electric whisk and then adding the flour bit by bit until I had a biscuit dough.

Put this in a piping bag and pipe some flattish whirls onto a baking tray.

Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes at 180’C until lightly browned.

Allow these to cool and then heat up the jam in a saucepan until it bubbles and allow to cool slighty, before spreading on the underside of the cookies.

Once the jam is cool and, hopefully, nice and firm and sticky, whisk together the icing sugar, margarine and vanilla for the filling and pipe onto half of the biscuits on top of the jam.

Sandwich together and serve before they fall apart.

Whatever you do don’t try to travel on the London underground with these babies- they’re delicate!!!

Thanks, Suzie!!!
