    fawn512's Note:

    Posted by Chef #446736 on zaar forum: "This recipe appeared in our newspaper several years ago. It was from the "Dear Ask-it" column with this introduction: This is for M.F. of Canandaigua. It is a very close substitute for Sibley's original Chinese Marble Cookies. I make them all the time. It was submitted by K. L. from Hilton, NY. These are very crisp and delicious." NOTE FROM DES: One suggestion you might want to make if you decide to post this recipe is not to use a cookie scoop. By using a cookie scoop it will cause the chocolate to blend into the dough more than what is desired.

      These are by far my favorite cookie! I only use shortening, you get crisper outter and a chewier inner. I also added about a teaspoon extra of vanilla and a whole tsp of almond extract. An extra ounce of chocolate is delish! I roll them in sugar thn flatten! Yum, enjoy!!

      Betcha can't eat just one!! YUM. Good with hot tea, good with chilled Chablis. Made just as directed and they were excellent. I think a little almond extract would be very good in these, will use it next time. The 1 oz. of chocolate is quite enough when you start cutting it in, even when you don't think so. More wouldn't work. And don't cut in too much! You'll lose some of the contrast. I did scoop the dough, verrry carefully. I like the use of all shortening; butter would cause the cookies to spread more. The first pan, I forgot to flatten the cookies with the glass; I did the next two pans. I think the unflattened ones are just a tad better-tasting, why, I couldn't tell you, but the flattened ones are prettier. So next time I will just barely flatten them and see how it goes. All in all, a successful recipe. And an excellent cookie. Just in time for the season! fawn512, thanks a lot . . . Janet
