These pretty little checkerboard cookies are delicious and so easy to make. Perfect to share with friends and family during holidays or otherwise 🙂
1 and 3/4 cup of All purpose flour
(want them healthy use whole wheat flour- Roti atta)
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup and 1 tbsp melted or soft butter ( room temp). I am using salted version
1 cup sugar
1 medium size egg
1 tsp vanilla
3 tbsp milk ( any kind)
1/4 cup cocoa
Combine flour and baking powder. Beat sugar, egg and butter together until creamy. Add vanilla and flour+baking powder. Form a smooth dough and divide the dough into 2 parts.
Next combine milk, butter and cocoa and add this mixture in half portion of dough to form chocolatey dough. Let the dough chill.
Next form two thick rectangles ( one with Vanilla and one with chocolate). Cut each rectangle into 4 similar size pieces and then combine one vanilla, one chocolate and stack another two on top ( use all pieces.) you can just press these pieces together or you may use egg wash.
This log can be frozen as well.
When ready to cook, cut into 1″ thick cookies and bake at 350 F for 8-10 mins. Serve with a smile 🙂
