For this months alpha bake challenge the random letter generator picked 'V'. Initially the brain goes into panic 'V', 'V'? But nothing beginning with V. Once you have told your brain off and are calm again you begin to realise just how much does begin with V.
And then of course the problem is deciding what to make. I really wanted to make a Victoria plum tart, but it is June and the plums will not be in season till September. So that was that idea done. Then it hit me, I could have my Victoria plums, not in tart form, but in the form of Jam!
I have also been wanting to make Viennese biscuits for ages but have never quite got round to it. Now is definitely the perfect time. Finally I decided to go for the triple whammy and add vanilla into the mix.
And here we have it, my entry for this months alpha bake, Viennese fingers with Victoria plum jam and Vanilla filling!
