3×3 Checkerboard Cookies – 3×3 Schackrutor

IMG_4208

This post is a tribute to my Mom, no doubt. She loves these cookies, and is originally the master of making them as well. Although, I’ve always wanted to make them 3×3 instead of the original 2×2. What is important when making these cookies is that there’s no air between the rolls of dough, if there is, the cookies will crack and fall apart. In order to prevent that from happening, just make sure you squeeze the rolls together carefully. All in all, I think they turned out great, and they look much more “worked” than the original one’s, even though they are so simple. The cookies are prefect to freeze and bring out when you get that cookie craving!

Recipe / Recept

2 cups of flour / 5 dl mjöl

0.4 cups of sugar / 1 dl socker

7 ounces of butter / 200 g smör

2 tbsp of cacao powder / 2 msk kakao

1 tsp of vanilla extract / 1 tsk vaniljsocker

1. Preheat the oven to 390 F. / Sätt ugnen på 200 grader.

2. Put all ingredients in a food processor except the vanilla sugar and cacao powder . Split the dough in two. Mix the vanilla sugar in half, and the cacao powder into the other half. If the dough is very loose, put in some more flour, or put in the fridge for about an hour. / Lägg alla ingredienser i en mixer, utom kakaon och vanilj sockret. Dela degen i två och tillsätt vaniljsocker i den ena, och kakao i den andra. Om degen är väldigt lös och kladdig kan du antingen tillsätta mer mjöl, eller ställa den i kylen i ungefär en timme.

3. Split both the doughs in smaller, equally big pieces. Roll out in long strings all equally thick. You will need 4 of one dough and five of the other. Put one vanilla sting in the middle of a chocolate dough string, in the next layer, do the opposite, and the top layer the same as the bottom layer. / Dela båda degarna igen. Rulla ut dom i långa rullar, alla delar ska vara lika tjocka.Lägg sedan en vanilj deg i mitten av en choklad deg, och motsatt i nästa lager, och samma som understa lagret på det översta lagret.

4. Cut the cookies in about 1-2 cm slices, and bake in the oven for 5-7 min, when they get a tiny bit of color on the sides, take them out, let cool. / Skär kakorna i ca 1-2 cm skivor, grädda i ugnen i ca 5-7 min. När de fått liiite färg på sidorna, ta ut dom och låt dom svalna.

5. Done! / Klart!
