Amira's Viennese Biscuits
I made this for a special treat with a cuppa with friends. They tasted devine.
180g butter, softened, chopped
¼ cup caster sugar
½ teas vanilla essence
1 ¾ cups plain flour
¼ almond meal
4 tab strawberry jam
120g dark chocolate
Preheat oven at 180oC. Cream butter and sugar until well combined. Add vanilla and cream again. Fold in sifted flour and almond meal. Fill in fluted piping tube and pipe straight lengths about 6 cm long onto lined baking tray.
Bake at 180oC for 15 – 20 minutes until slightly browned. Cool on wire rack.
Sandwich two biscuits together with a little jam.
Melt chocolate and copha on top of double boiler. Once biscuits have been sandwiched together, dip one end into the chocolate. Allow to set completely before storing in an airtight container.
