Chocolate Marbled Cookies

76 comments

I have seen many bloggers making this light and crumbly, melt in your mouth recipe ~ German Butter Cookies adapted from Min's Blog. I've changed the recipe a little by adding some Valrhona cocoa powder to make it marbled for extra chocolately and it's definitely worthwhile to play around with them a little bit :)



Here is the recipe
125g Butter
40g Icing sugar (sifted)
125g Potato starch or corn starch
80g Plain flour (sifted twice)

Beat butter and icing sugar till fluffy and lighter in color.
Sift in potato starch and flour, mix to form a soft plain dough and set aside.

125g Butter
40g Icing sugar (sifted)
125g Potato starch or corn starch
20g Valrhona cocoa powder (sifted twice)
60g Plain flour (sifted twice)

Beat butter and icing sugar till fluffy and lighter in color.
Sift in potato starch, Valrohona cocoa powder and plain flour, mix to form a soft chocolate dough.


Divide plain and chocolate dough into 4 portions.
Roll plain and chocolate dough separately into long strips. Using 1 tsp measuring spoon of plain and chocolate dough, wrap them around each other with your hand and place on a lined baking tray and gently press dough with your finger.
Bake at preheated oven at 170C for 13-15 mins depending on the size of your cookies.
Leave to cool completely and store in an airtight container.

This melts in your mouth cookie is perfect with a cup of fresh brewed coffee :)
Enjoy!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Thank you everyone for taking your time reading this post. My cookies already half gone :))
    You can use ordinary cocoa powder too but of course not as flavorful compare to valrhona. I bought the valrohona cocoa powder from Sunlik at 8.50 for 250g.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Looks great with the marbling!! Definitely will cheer up those who sample them this CNY. (Ann, what a co-incidence! I used the same red packets as prop for my next CNY cookies too. Hehehe!)

    ReplyDelete

  47. wow, Valrhona cocoa! What extravagance! I think $8.50 for 250g is a steal! Shemay's selling at $9.95 for the same packaging I think.

  60. Hi Jy, of course you can add Hershey unsweetened choco powder, the taste will be perfect :)

    ReplyDelete
  61. Hi, if i use Hershey Unsweetened choco powder will it affect the taste?

    ReplyDelete
  62. hi, can substitue icing sugar to castor sugar?

    will it change the taste or texture?

    thanks

    ReplyDelete
  63. @Anonymous
    I think if you want the melt in your cookies texture, it's better to use icing sugar for quick mixing. Caster sugar will takes a little longer to melt.

  64. Hi Ann, thanks for sharing the wonderful recipe and these are cuties. I made them for this CNY.
