Vanilla and chocolate striped biscuits

Play Video

In this video tutorial i show you how to make these vanilla and chocolate striped biscuits (zebra cookies). I have already made the biscuit dough using my favourite biscuit recipe.

What you will need

One batch of my favourite biscuit recipe

1 -2 tablespoons cocoa powder

Method : Zebra Cookies

Prepare a cookie tray with some baking tray and put it to one side.

Once you make the biscuit dough, divide the mixture between two bowls. Add a tablespoon or two of cocoa powder into one of the bowls.

Mix in the cocoa powder into the dough and form into a ball. Do the same for the vanilla one.

Roll out the chocolate dough onto some baking paper . Repeat the process with the vanilla dough.

Put the vanilla dough on top of the chocolate one and then cut around the edges to neaten it.

Cut the dough in half and then get the other half of the biscuit dough and place it on top of the other one.

Roll it out a bit, if necessary, cut pieces of the dough. You can see the layers are nicely defined.

Put the pieces on a prepared baking tray and put in the fridge to firm up, about 30 minutes,

A few minutes before getting them out of the fridge, pre-heat oven to 175 Celsius.

When the biscuits are ready bake them in the oven for about 10-12 minutes until nice and golden brown on top.

Remove from the oven and leave to cool on the tray and then put on a cooling rack to cool completely.

Serve as they are or watch this video showing a simple biscuit decorating recipe.
