I am really pleased to have found this recipe as I love viennese biscuits. The only changes I made were I used 2oz of icing sugar and added a couple of drops of vanilla and a few capfulls of milk this made the biscuits extremely light.
I tried this method yesterday, i found there to be too much butter and that when they came out, they were so greasy that you'd get a heart attach just touching them! They did smell yummy thought!
These are my favourite biscuits - I can't believe I've found this recipe and made them myself!! I didn't have a big star thing (!) (I'm new to piping bags!) so made some small fluted ones and some sandwiched with chocolate. Maybe I'll post a photo as I am very proud! Thank you, Ann, just what I needed on a dreary British Monday!!
