Viennese Fingers

The cookie baking bug has really got me and these have been on my mental to try list for a while.

My mum used to make them for us when we were younger and she’d sandwich them together with jam and dip the tops in chocolate.
 
This is the first attempt at them and I couldn’t believe how easy they were to make.

I’d love to hear if you make them, they do look great and would make great Christmas cookies for friends and neighbours.
 
 
If you are interested in more cookie-making techniques and are in Melbourne, I’ll be running a Christmas cookie workshop here.

Happy Saturday friends ♥
