We all face that dilemma at least once in our life time…will it be chocolate or will it be Vanilla 🙂 Worry not friends, today I present to you, best of both worlds..half and half cookies..half chocolate and half vanilla..They look pretty, taste great and are super easy to make..Also, check out different cookies you can make with the same dough.
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
2 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 logs ( one with Vanilla and one with chocolate). ) Cut into two halves and combine portion of vanilla with portion of chocolate. 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 🙂
