Colorful Checkerboard Cookies


Cookies Recipe with Very Few Ingredients

Lately, I have been a little overwhelmed with everything going on in my life. I feel like there is always so much to do and I don’t ever have a second to sit down and just breathe. But luckily for me, when I get into the kitchen, all my stress seems to disappear.

So this week, I decided to get into the kitchen and create something bright and colorful (that always seems to make me feel better). I took a simple shortbread base and just added a little food coloring to mix things up. I know the checkerboard pattern makes these cookies look a little complicated, but don’t be intimidated! All you need is a ruler and sharp knife (or bench scraper) and you are good to go!

Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg yolk
  • Pink, purple and green food coloring

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prepare a baking sheet with parchment.
  • In a food processor, combine flour, sugar and salt.
  • Add butter pieces and pulse until dough resembles small crumbles.
  • Add the vanilla extract and egg yolk. Pulse until the dough comes together.
  • Transfer dough to a lightly floured service. Shape dough into a round and divide it into four even portions.
  • Put a small amount of food coloring in the center of one section. Knead the dough until the color is evenly distributed.
  • Using your hands, work each section of dough into a long rectangle. Place in the fridge for 20 minutes.
  • Using a knife and a ruler trim the edges to be 1" high, 1" wide, and 9" long.
  • Place the dough back in the fridge for another 20 minutes.
  • Press press the strips together to form one large block.
  • Using a knife, cut dough into 1/4" slices. Bake for 12 -15 minutes.
  • Remove baking sheet from oven. Let cookies sit for 2 minutes and then transfer to wire rack to cool.

Just found this old video and I cried laughing because…
1. I still wear 99.9% black
2. I still do handstands at home
3. I’m teaching free food photo classes this week!

So it felt appropriate to repost. And also…that video of me doing the “vault” is just too good not to share.

If you haven’t signed up for the live class, check out the link in my bio. May or may not break out a handstand during class. It’s going to be live. So anything is possible! 🙌
