    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 16

    Yield:

    cookies

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar using a whisk or an electric whisk until light and fluffy.
    2. 2
      Add vanilla and mix again.
    3. 3
      Now, add the flour in batches and mix into the butter sugar mixture until you get a crumbly mixture.
    4. 4
      Once you reach the crumbly stage, knead the dough until it all comes together into a big lump.
    5. 5
      In case you find the dough too sticky, sprinkle a lil flour and knead.
    6. 6
      Once done kneading, divide the dough into half.
    7. 7
      In one portion of the dough, sprinkle the cocoa powder and gently incorporate the cocoa into the dough thoroughly.
    8. 8
      Now, place the white dough between 2 sheets of parchment paper or butter paper and gently roll out into a 5" square making sure the dough is evenly rolled out.
    9. 9
      Repeat the same process with the chocolate dough too.
    10. 10
      Now, line a tray or a plate with parchment paper.
    11. 11
      Cut the rolled out dough into 4 strips each 3/4" wide.
    12. 12
      In the lined tray, assemble the strips in an alternate fashion to get the checkerboard pattern.
    13. 13
      Once you assemble the strips, refrigerate the dough for 2 to 3 hours. I refrigerated the dough for 1 day out of sheer lack of time to bake them but needless to say, i had super crunchy cookies so no regrets there.
    14. 14
      After 3 hours, preheat the oven to 180°C.
    15. 15
      Cut the log of dough into 1/4" thick slices and assemble on a parchment paper lined baking tray leaving an inch gap between each cookie.
    16. 16
      Bake for 8 to 10 mins or until the cookies turn a light brown.
    17. 17
      Cool completely and store in an airtight container.
