recipe: checkered cookies

This recipe was largely inspired by the Checkerboard Cookies found in the recipe book “Fika.” The recipes in it are so simple, delicate, and tasty, I thought that using one to serve at Easter (and beyond) would be a nice treat. 

Checkered Cookies

Makes 2 dozen

Ingredients:

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp lemon juice
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

Steps:

1. In a medium bowl, combine the butter, sugar, vanilla extract, lemon juice, and flour. Mix well and form into a soft dough.

2. Separate into two pieces, placing one in another bowl. Sprinkle cocoa powder over one half of the dough. Mix well.

3. Divide the light and dark doughs into two pieces each- making four in total. Form each piece into a log approximately 1 inch in diameter. Carefully place one light log next to a dark one. Then place one dark log on top of a light one, and the remaining light log on top of the dark one. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

4. Preheat oven to 350°F. Remove dough from fridge and wrap and cut into approximately 24 equal pieces. Put cookies onto a non-stick cookie sheet and bake for 10 minutes. Let cool before removing from sheet.
