Gather the Biscuits’ Ingredients
To create these scrumptious Chocolate and Vanilla Biscuits, you’ll need the following ingredients: 2 eggs, 3/4 cup (150 g) of sugar, 8.8 oz (250g) of butter (melted), 0.5 oz (15g) of baking powder, 15.9 oz (450g) of all purpose flour, 0.7 oz (20g) of cocoa powder, 2 vanillin vials, and a pinch of salt. This perfect blend of ingredients will result in biscuits that are both tender and flavorful.
Mixing the Dough
In a bowl, add the eggs and sugar, then beat them together until well combined. Add the vanillin and a pinch of salt, and gradually incorporate the melted butter while continuing to beat the mixture. In a separate bowl, combine the baking powder with the flour and stir until evenly distributed. Gradually add the flour mixture to the dough while mixing, until a smooth and pliable dough forms.
Creating the Chocolate and Vanilla Patterns
Divide the dough into two equal portions. One portion will be used for the chocolate dough and the other for the vanilla dough. Add the cocoa powder to one of the portions and mix until the cocoa is fully incorporated. Freeze both the chocolate and vanilla dough portions for 30 minutes to make them easier to handle.
Shaping and Baking the Biscuits
After 30 minutes, divide each dough portion into five smaller pieces weighing 50g each, and one larger piece. Using your hands, roll out the two larger pieces into thick sticks and join them together to create a marbled effect. Roll out the smaller pieces of dough into thin sticks and arrange them alternately (one vanilla, one chocolate, and so on), pressing the dough lightly to adhere them together. Place the larger marbled dough over the smaller sticks and roll it up.
Final Steps and Baking the Biscuits
Cut the rolled dough in half and wrap each portion tightly in parchment paper. Freeze the dough for an additional 30 minutes to help retain its shape. Preheat your oven to 355°F (180°C) and line a baking pan with parchment paper. After 30 minutes, remove the dough from the freezer and cut it into thin biscuit slices. Arrange the slices on the prepared baking pan, leaving some space between each biscuit. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the biscuits turn a lovely golden brown.
