Spiral Cookies







Recipe:

makes about 24

Ingredients:

for the vanilla dough:
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup sugar
few drops vanilla extract
1/2 egg yolk, beaten
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted

for the chocolate dough:
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup sugar
few drops vanilla extract
1/2 egg yolk, beaten
1 1/4 cups plus 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour, sifted
1/4 cup cocoa powder

Directions:

1. Beat the butter and sugar in a medium bowl until soft and creamy. Add the vanilla, egg, and flour into the creamed mixture and stir until it forms a soft dough.
2. In a separate bowl, make the chocolate dough in the same way.
3. Knead each dough separately until smooth, cover in plastic wrap, and chill for 30 minutes.
4. Roll out both pieces of dough to 10 x 7in. rectangles. Brush a little milk on the vanilla dough and lay the chocolate dough on top. Press down gently. Roll up from the short side to make a spiral log. Wrap and chill for 30 minutes.
5. Cut the roll into (about) 24 slices, arrange 1 1/2in. apart on two parchment paper-lined cookies sheets, and bake for 10-12 minutes.
