MY Family Cocoa Vanilla Butter Cookies [CNY 2014]

This is a combination of vanilla and cocoa flavour butter cookies.  The recipe is same as my previous postings on MY Family Butter Cookies and MY Cocoa Butter Cookies.  All these cookies were made the same day but I posted them separately for easy reference.  It is just a combination of both dough place in the star nozzle and pressed out to form the dual colour and flavour cookies.
This recipe makes about 240 pieces.   
Ingredients for Vanilla Butter Cookie Dough
250 gm butter [I used Golden Churn brand]
110 icing sugar
1 small egg
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1/4 tsp salt
300 gm plain flour - sifted 
  1. Cream butter and icing sugar until light.  Add egg, vanilla essence and salt.  Continue beating until creamy and fluffy.
  2. Stir in sifted flour and mix until well combined.
Ingredients for Cocoa Butter Cookie Dough

250 gm butter [I used Golden Churn brand]
110 icing sugar
1 small egg
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1/4 tsp salt
270 gm plain flour - sifted together with cocoa powder
30 gm cocoa powder [I used Van Houten cocoa powder]
9-10 red cherries - diced
  1. Cream butter and icing sugar until light.  Add egg, vanilla essence and salt.  Continue beating until creamy and fluffy.
  2. Stir in sifted flour and mix until well combined.
How To Make The Cookies?

  1. Remove a small portion of both cookie dough [alternately as you place the dough] into a piping bag with a star nozzle fitted to it.
  2. Pipe star rosettes onto baking trays lined with parchment paper.
  3. Place a piece of diced red cherries on each rosette.
  4. Bake in preheated oven at 180 degrees C for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
  5. Remove to cool on wire rack before storing in airtight container.

Hi Kimmy,

I realised that your family must like these cookies very much because you have baked so many...

This is a nice variation with half half swirl in each cookies.

My daughter and I are planning to make butter cookies this weekend too, I think she will like the flower shape a lot.

Hi Veronica, many visitors to the house love these butter cookies.

Hi Baby Sumo, the dough is easy to handle. You can chill it before baking, it's okay.

Hi Kimmy,
A lovely idea to make them into swirls. I love buttery cookies!

lena said...

good morning kimmy, it's a good idea to combine both flavours and turn it into a marbled cookie! thx so much for linking again!

Kimmy said...

Hi Joyce and Lena, 2 cookie dough but you can get 3 kinds of cookies. Can use different cookie molds and nobody would know it's the same recipe, hehehe!

Two flavours. Must be sedap.

Kimmy said...

Hi Amy, not too bad though.

Phong Hong said...

Kimmy, so far I have not piped cookie dough yet. Should really try it as the cookies look pretty. They must be very fragrant, can't stop eating!

Kimmy said...

Hi Phong Hong, you need some skill and patience for this cookie as you will have to fill the dough alternatively in the nozzle mold.
