When I think about this Scottish cookies I am thinking about Vienna, waltz, Strauss's music...

In United Kingdom you can buy those cookies in every shop. For long time I have been looking for recipe, but I could't find anything great. I have decided to make recipe by myself. 

Ingredients for about 8 Viennese Whirls (made from 2 cookies) 

Pinch Salt
110 g butter, softened
135 g plain flour
40 g corn starch
50 g icing sugar
2 egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Combine butter with sifted icing sugar. Mix until butter become fluffy. 
2. Add yolks, vanilla. Mix well. 
3. Sift flour, corn starch and salt. Add to butter mixture. 
4. Spoon mixture to pastry bag with fluted nozzle. 
5. Pre-heat oven to 180 C
6. Greasy baking tray. Then sprinkle it with little flour. 
7. Pipe small rosettes (remember about space between them). 
8. Place in oven and bake for about 15 minutes. 
9. Ready leave to cool. 

Ingredients for filling:

7 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened
1 cup icing sugar
4 tablespoon double cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
8 teaspoon raspberry jam (seedless)

1. Beat butter with icing sugar - until butter will change colour to light cream and be fluffy. 
2. To butter mixture add vanilla extract and double cream. Beat well. 
3. Take one cookie - spread on it 1 teaspoon jam and one teaspoon filling. Cover it with another cookie. 
4. Ready Viennese Whirls decorate with icing sugar. 
5. Place cookies for about 1 hour into the fridge. 

Smacznego :)
