Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Chilling time 15 minutes


  • 4 oz butter or margarine softened
  • 2 oz icing sugar sifted
  • 4 oz plain flour sifted
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence

for the filling

  • 2 oz butter or margarine
  • 1 oz icing sugar sifted
  • 2 oz chocolate melted
  • icing sugar to dust


  • Grease two baking trays. Beat the butter or margarine with the sugar until pale and very soft. Stir in the flour and vanilla essence.
  • Spoon the mixture into a piping bag fitted with a large star nozzle and pipe 18 - 20 rings on to the baking trays. Chill for 15 - 20 minutes.
  • Bake in a moderately hot oven for 12 - 15 minutes. Leave the biscuits on the tray, for a few seconds, then use a palette knife to lift them off. Cool on a wire rack.
  • For the filling, beat the butter or margarine with the icing sugar. Cool the melted chocolate slightly, then stir into the filling. Pipe a little on half the whirls, top with the remaining halves. Dust with icing sugar.
  • To pipe the biscuits, hold the bag at right angles to the tray, not at a slant. Squeeze the bag evenly and firmly, lift off the nozzle sharply or slide a knife across the nozzle when you have finished.
