Two Toned Cookies – Chocolate and Vanilla


I have combined my cookies to make a two toned cookie, these may take a while to make but they are fun to eat and very eye-catching!

These do not need chilling prior to baking so these cookies can be made in double quick time!

This recipe will make 17 cookies.

You Will Need:

  • 200g Butter
  • 300g Caster Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Essence
  • 1 Egg
  • 350g Plain Flour
  • ½ tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 20g Cocoa Powder


  • Grease two baking sheets or more if you have them.
  • Pre heat the oven to 180degrees.
  • Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Add the vanilla essence and the egg, mix until well incorporated.
  • Sift in the flour, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda together, I like to get my hands in at this point.
  • This will come together to form a soft dough.
  • Take a 1/3 of the cookie dough out (this will be about 300g) and add the cocoa powder to it, mix in the cocoa powder as much as you can without over handling.

Tip: You don’t want to over handle the dough as it can go tough, so it doesn’t matter if there is a few small flecks in the chocolate cookie dough.

  • Divide the chocolate cookie dough into 17 equal sized balls.
  • Divide the vanilla cookie dough into 17 equal sized balls that are larger than the chocolate ones.


  • Take a ball of each colour, divide the vanilla in half and flatten each half. Pop the chocolate ball in the middle and sandwich it with the other flattened vanilla half.


  • Secure the edges and repeat with the remaining cookie dough balls.


  • Arrange them on your prepared baking sheet. Allowing plenty of room for spreading, I usually put six on a sheet at a time.


  • Bake for 10-13mins. You may need to turn the tray to achieve an even bake.
  • The longer you bake them for the harder and crispier they will become.
  • Allow to cool on the sheet for a couple of minutes and then transfer the cookies to a cooling rack.


  • Repeat until all the cookies are baked.
