These Viennese Biscuits are some of my favourite xmas cookies. Super easy to prepare using your Thermomix and so perfectly crumbly and sweet. This is a great recipe for xmas edible gifts.
Christmas time is the perfect time of the year to have an excuse for being in the kitchen all day and making the most wonderful cookies. In our house we usually dedicated a whole day to just baking as many different varieties of xmas biscuits and cookies as possible. These Viennese biscuits or as we call them in Germany 'Spritzgebäck' are my dad's favourite.
They come in all shapes and forms but this time I made S shapes. You can also make dots or go for O or I shapes. It is important to use a very large piping nozzle. I bought a special one from Amazon, which was super cheap and thanks to prime I got it the next day. I did try piping it in a small star nozzle but it didn't even come out so I suggest if you don't have a large star nozzle and don't want to get one, just use a plain piping bag and cut off the first 3-4cm to have a large opening.
You can also add cocoa to half the mixture and fill both mixtures next to each other in the piping bag to create a cool look.
