Spotted cookies!

   OK, I am going to do something really bad... I will skip the introduction and go straight to the recipe! I promise I will do better next time! Here is the recipe for delicious, double-colored, vanilla cookies:


*  2 sticks of butter (room temperature)
*  1 cup white sugar
*  3 cups all-purpose flour
*  2 tsp vanilla extract
*  1 tsp baking powder
*  1/2 tsp salt
*  1/2 tsp cinnamon
*  1/4 tsp nutmeg
*  1 tbsp cocoa powder

Sugar coat:

*  3 tbsp white sugar
*  1/2 tsp cinnamon


1. Cream together butter and 1 cup white sugar until light and fluffy.
2. Beat in vanilla extract, baking powder, salt, 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1/2 tsp nutmeg.
3. Beat in flour, 1 cup at a time.
4. Divide the mixture into two equal part (in separate bowls) and add cocoa powder to one of them. Mix until combined.
5. In a shallow bowl combine 3 tbsp of sugar with 1/2 tsp of cinnamon.
6. Using your hands combine 1 tsp of brown dough with 1 tsp of white dough and form two-colored balls.
7. Place on a baking sheet, flatten using bottom of a glass.
8. Bake at 350F for 14 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack.

   Cute and delicious! I think I will stop here, I don't even think I need to convince you to try them... I know you will!



  1. My 2yr old daughter loves these cookies. I only changed the recipe by adding 2 eggs.

  2. These taste good, but are a little dry. I made these tonight. My husband liked them tho. ;)
