Day 3: Checkerboard Cookies

Day 3: Checkerboard Cookies

Checkerboard Cookies are so appealing with their black and white checkerboard design that gives you both a chocolate and a vanilla flavored cookie in one.

Day 3 of Christmas cookies brings us to these pretty checkerboard cookies. They’re not as hard to make as you think, it’s simple cookie dough, one plain and one with cocoa powder for the chocolate dough. I love these cookies, they’re so cute, just adorable.

I could hardly wait to make these cookies. I made them once before and they look so pretty that everyone was so impressed with them and wanted to know how they’re made. See this is why I love this time of year! I’m having so much fun baking! I can hardly wait for the weekend to make some more and trust me, I have some great ideas, you will love them! Maybe it’s a good thing I have to go to work, otherwise I’d be baking all day long, every single day. That would not be good.
