Ever decreasing circles

I have been a bad blogger recently. Or rather, I have been a good mother, student, employee and wife. It’s been one of those months where everything comes at once and you end up going round and round in ever decreasing circles. But the end is in sight and I have made friends with my beloved oven again. And I have a new obsession in baking  –  swirls. Because plaiting is very last month.

And so we have swirl-whirly  biscuits, (named by Big Bear) which are vanilla and chocolate swirled biscuits, filled with chocolate and hazelnut swirl spread. I found the recipe (and beautiful photographs) at Iced Cupcakes, and the only thing I changed was the filling, because I found a swirly spread. To be honest, once spread on the biscuits, you couldn’t tell that the filling also started as a two tone swirl, but I do LOVE it when everything fits in a theme.

EDIT: Iced cupcakes has removed her blog. *sob* But fear not, you can find the recipe on our facebook page.

If you’re wondering what these are like, I can explain. Sort of. They are too spongy to be biscuits, but aren’t quite cake. I guess the closest thing to it is a whoopie pie. But they are definitely not pie like. Confused? Me too. Delicious? Very!

  1. Do you have any tips for making and baking the cookies?

    • Yes! Only use one small teaspoon of vanilla batter for each cookie because they spread. I split the batter taking 5 tbsp of it for the chocolate, but I didn’t need that much, so I’d suggest 3 tbsp. Also make sure you either grease or line your baking trays. I didn’t because I have never had to before, and they stuck and had to be chiselled off! Apart from that, it’s pretty much straight forward. Happy Baking!

  2. sorry they stuck so much! I always use baking paper just because I am scared things will stick 😉 but once cooled I thought they came off a bit better…. but next time I will note when to REALLY use baking paper 🙂

  3. These look amazing!

  4. The hearts look awesome! How’d you get them to look so even?

  5. They look yummy. Sort of like a jaffa cake base? 🙂

  6. They looks sooooo delicious.

  7. Hi I would love to have a go at these but can’t find the recipe?
