These Two-Tone Cookies are pretty to look at and can be easily made within a short time. The cookies are light and crumbly with a nice flavour of valrhona cocoa powder and they literally melt in your mouth. You can either mix with cocoa powder or matcha powder as desired to get the two-tone colour. They are great to serve for anytime of the day or at any special occasions especially for the Chinese New Year which is just around the corner.
