Vanilla Chocolate Swirl Cookies

Vanilla Chocolate Swirl Cookies

Watch the video for this recipe:

Vanilla and Chocolate Swirl Cookies are one of my favorite childhood cookies. They are rich and buttery, with a classic combination of vanilla and chocolate. They are one of the best treats alongside a cup of milk or coffee and also one of kids’ favorite cookies due to the swirl effect.

 

The recipe is very easy, requires common ingredients and can be prepared ahead of time. I suggest making two batches as they go pretty fast and they are appropriate for any occasion or simply as a snack.
