Vegan MoFo - ooooohhhhh Viennaaaaaa!

My 2 best friends (and my best friend's beautiful pooch, Maddy) came over for dinner tonight and we were too excited about catching up with Supernatural for me to take a picture of dinner. It was just a stir fry with some noodles though anyway.

But I do have a pic of dessert! In my pregan days, the 3 of us could happily scoff our way through a pack of viennese whirls in no time at all. But they are of course, not vegan so when I saw them blogged on The Only Vegan in the Village, I knew I had to try this recipe out. I followed it exactly except that I added a pinch of salt as well.

When I tasted the cookie dough I thought - no way these are sweet enough. But then I remembered they would be filled with supersweet buttercream.

They are AWESOME and my friends loved them too. You have to give them a go!


The filling I used was just some strawberry jam and a basic vanilla buttercream. Mine are not perfect and I was laughing at my rubbish effort of piping them as I did them. But actually they turned out pretty good and didn't look so bad once they were baked!

  7. Those look beautiful and have a nice contrast with the filling both texturally and color-wise. Nice job.
