Let’s talk cookies for a second. We all like chocolate chip cookies (made with brown butter, please), snickerdoodles, and shortbread. How do we feel about two flavours in one cookie? I’m talking vanilla and chocolate, swirled perfectly together to make a cookie that is the best of both worlds.
I’ve made cookies similar to this before. I loaded the dough up with peppermint extract, coloured some green, some orange and made Irish flag swirl cookies for St. Patrick’s Day.
This recipe is two different flavoured doughs and it comes together a lot faster than my three-colour, same flavour cookie. It’s chocolate and vanilla, but let’s be real it’s mostly chocolate because I like to use dark cocoa powder. So it is kind of dark chocolate with a hint of vanilla. Whatever it is, it works.
Embrace the chocolate vanilla swirl!
These cookies are cute, fun, tasty and easy, which is all you really ever want out of a cookie, right? Make these and I’m pretty sure you’ll be adding them to your regular cookie rotation.
We start by making a butter-sugar-egg mixture. Then we divide it in half, make one the vanilla flavour and the other chocolate. Then, lets roll out the dough to two evenly sized rectangles. The dough is fragile, if it’s too fragile to work with throw it into the fridge for a few minutes before rolling out. Once we have our two rectangles we’re going to place one on top of the other, then roll into a log. Wrap in parchment, palace in the fridge for a while, then slice and bake. Easy!
Serve them with tea or coffee and get to living your best life!
