These unique mouthwatering vanilla chocolate cookies will be your new favourite cookies. They are simple to make and definitely a must-try recipe. Take a mixing bowl and add room temperature butter and icing sugar then mix the two by hand until incorporated. Once the icing and butter are well mixed, add one egg and continue mixing really well making sure the egg is mixed in well.

Into another bowl, add flour, vanilla powder, milk powder and salt, if you used salted butter, don’t add salt. Lightly mix the dry ingredients then add them into the butter mixture. Mix them together as if you are kneading, this is a slightly hard dough so you will not need a mixer, it will be easier to do everything by hand. Mix until the flour and the butter are combined and you have a slightly hard dough.

Divide the dough into two halves and place the other half in another bowl and add cocoa powder. Mix them until the cocoa powder is incorporated in the cookie dough and you now have a chocolate dough. Depending on how small, or big you want your cookies to be, pinch the vanilla dough and roll it in your hands into a ball and line them on your work surface, repeat until you are done.

Do the same for the chocolate dough. Once done, line a baking tray with parchment paper then line the prepared dough into 4. Place 2 vanilla cookie dough with 2 chocolate cookie dough and lightly squeeze 4 of them together to make a square shape. Repeat with the remaining dough spacing them well in the baking tray.

Use a cookie presser to press each of the 4 cookies into your desired shape. Bake in a 170C oven for 20 minutes. Once baked, remove from the oven and let the vanilla chocolate cookies cool down on a wire rack for about 20 minutes. serve them with a cup of tea. Enjoy.
