I had the kitchen to myself for three blissful hours. So I amused myself by tackling checkerboard cookies. I had seen them on A Cozy Kitchen and they looked impressive but seemed like a manageable project.
I had no idea where to find freeze dried strawberries on this rock. So where she blitzed freeze dried strawberries with sugar, I improvised with about a tablespoon of dried rosemary. Rosemary and chocolate make a fine pairing.
I didn’t find a need to brush every layer with egg wash to help it stick and the cookies came out fine.
Waste not, want not. I couldn’t be arsed to try to make more strips for another checkerboard so I mushed the scraps together and got a pretty marble-y effect. Actually if I ever make these cookies again (and it’s such a simple cookie dough so why not), maybe I will just mush two flavours into marble-y cookies and call it a marble cookie instead.
