Delicious combination of Vanilla and Chocolate flavour in a single cookie make this one of the must-try cookies with a glass of warm milk

Light, buttery, these cookies are really delightful in taste requiring fewer ingredients and besides these are simple to make. You can shape these cookies as desired

I have made Swirl cookies too including checkerboard, here I have shared simple striped form of the same. I will be sharing egg based version shortly. Both egg less and egg based cookies taste almost similar so yes, you can definitely try this recipe if you want it egg free

Since these are egg free cookies, the dough should be handled with care hence it requires mandate chilling before baking. Cold cookies yield better results. You can skip milk wash if required as the dough is quite pliable, I added it for additional softness. This cookies can stay fresh for 1 month if stored in cool dry place in air tight container. You can refrigerate the cookie dough for 5 days and freeze upto 2 months so you can prepare the dough in advance. Go ahead and try this out and let me know the results πŸ™‚

*Add milk to the dough only if it’s crumbly else you can skip it. Milk wash makes cookies softer

**The more time, you bake, cookies would be crisp, do not over bake

***It’s important to chill the dough as mentioned to prevent it from spreading while baking

Do watch the video for better clarity in preparation and share your experience once you prepare the cookies
