  • 2 Cups All Purpose Flour

  • 150 Gram Unsalted Butter

  • 2/3 Cup Granulated Sugar

  • 2 Tablespoon Cocoa Powder

  • Combine butter, sugar and vanilla essence in a mixing bowl and beat till the mixture becomes light and fluffy.

  • Divide the dough into 2 equal portions. Add cocoa powder in one part and knead well.
  • Roll both parts into 1.5 inch thick square-rectangular sticks and wrap them in a plastic wrap.
  • Cool the sticks in the freezer for about 30 minutes.
  • Slice each dough lengthwise into 3 pieces of around 1/2 inch thickness.
  • Again cut each slab lengthwise into 3 pieces of equal width.
  • Rearrange by swapping the middle dough again. Make two large slabs again by placing the smaller slabs on each other, making sure that alternate colors are stacked.
  • Wrap each dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate again for 30 minutes.
  • Slice the slabs crosswise into 1/4 inch thick pieces and place them on a baking tray.
  • Bake the cookies in a preheated oven at 180 C or 350 F for around 15 minutes.
  • Allow the cookies to cool on a wire rack. Checkerboard Cookies are ready.
