This is a variation on a sugar cookie recipe my great-grandma made. These cookies both look and taste amazing.
- 2 eggs
- ½ cup butter
- 1 t cream of tartar
- 2 cups flour
- ½ t baking soda
- ½ t salt
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 t vanilla
- 1 ¼ T cocoa powder
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Use a large bowl to mix together all of the ingredients except for the cocoa powder.
Split the dough into two even parts and then stir the cocoa powder into one half of the dough so that you have two types of dough.
In batches, take equal amounts of each dough (the vanilla and the chocolate) and roll them out into ropes until they are six inches long.
Now twist together the two ropes of dough.
Now, flatten the dough.
Twist it again and then roll it out with a rolling pin.
Now use a circular cookie cutter to cut out the marbled dough.
Repeat with other batches until you use all the dough.
Bake for 13 minutes and then let the cookies cool on a cooling rack.
