Black and White Cookies - Black and White Cookies Recipe From GeoTrinity - Own work, CC BY-SA 3.0

These biscuits were always a highlight on my mum's Advent plate. She tried very hard. At least in our children's eyes. Therefore, they were also something special for us children. I loved these cookiebecause they tasted chocolaty. They are very easy to prepare though. Every time I see these cookies, I think back to my childhood, to cozy coffee breaks on Advent afternoons and the anticipation of the upcoming Christmas celebrations. You can find out how to bake them yourself in this black and white biscuit recipe.



Black and white biscuits recipe

Ingredients for the black and white cookies:

  • 125 grams butter
  • 125 grams of sugar
  • one egg
  • 1 package vanilla sugar
  • 250 grams of flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons cocoa

How to prepare the black and white biscuit recipe:

Make sure the butter is room temperature. Then put all the ingredients except the cocoa in a bowl and knead them into a smooth dough.

Then divide the dough in half.

Add the cocoa to one of the halves and knead it into the dough.

Then you form two balls from the types of dough and put them in the fridge.

When the dough is cool, you can use the rolling pin to cut it into sheets about 1 centimeter thick. Then place the dark sheet over the light sheet of dough and cut strips about 1 centimeter thick from both sheets.

Then cut the strips again into pieces about 1 centimeter thick.

You can then arrange them in a checkerboard pattern to give them their typical appearance.

Line a baking tray with baking paper and preheat the oven to 200°C.

Distribute your pre-formed black and white cookies on top.

Now bake them for about 10 minutes.

You see, black and white cookies are very easy to bake. We hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed them as a child.

TravelWorldOnline has been online since 2001. Their topics are trips to Savor, wine tourism worldwide and slow travel. During her studies Monika Fuchs spent some time in North America, where she - partly together with Petar Fuchs - traveled to the USA and Canada and spent a research year in British Columbia. This intensified her thirst for knowledge, which she satisfied for 6 years as an adventure guide for Rotel Tours and then for 11 years as a tour guide for Studiosus Reisen around the world. She was constantly expanding her travel regions, but curiosity still gnawed at her: "What's beyond the horizon? What else is there to discover in this city? Which people are interesting here? What do they eat in this region?" As a freelance travel journalist (her articles have appeared in DIE ZEIT, 360° Canada, 360° USA, etc.), she is now looking for answers to these questions as a travel writer and travel blogger in many countries around the world.
