Chocolate/Vanilla Sugar Cookies

Ingredients:

-3 cups flour

-1/2 tsp salt

-1/2 tsp baking soda

-1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature

-1 1/2 cups white sugar

-2 eggs

-2 tsp vanilla extract

-5 TBS cocoa powder

Recipe Instructions

-Preheat the over to 350 degrees.

-Whisk together 3 cups flour, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/2 tsp baking soda.

-In another bowl, mix together 1 cup butter, 1 1/2 cups sugar, 2 eggs, and 2 tsp vanilla extract (about 3 mins).

-Slowly add dry mixture to wet mixture and combine.

-Knead dough and cut in half.

-Mix half of the dough with 5 TBS cocoa powder. It’s easiest to do this with clean bare hands.

-Wrap dough balls in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1+ hour.

-Roll out dough and make cookies about 1/4 inch thick. You can cut the cookies into completely separate cookies, but I recommend cutting circles with a glass and cutting out the cookies from each circle, then flip flopping the cookies so that the chocolate and vanilla flavors are combined (see picture). I also recommend coating the tops of the vanilla sugar cookies in white sugar or sprinkles.

-Bake at 350 degrees for 9-11 mins.

-Enjoy! 🙂
