Cake and Slice

Marbled Cookies 

 
Ingredients 

125g of Unsalted Butter

55g of Caster Sugar

180g of Plain Flour

Pink Food Dye (I prefer to use a paste based dye.)

 

Method

1. Preheat the oven to 190C (170C if using a fan over) and line two flat baking trays.

2. Cream together the butter and sugar until smooth and pale,

3. Gradually add the flour and combine to form a solid ball. If you are struggling to form a ball with your mixture add a tiny amount of milk to help bind it all together.

4. Break away a 1/3 of the mixture and add a small amount of pink food dye. Kneed the mixture to allow the colour to spread through out.

5. Break off ping pong ball sized amounts of each mixture and roll into individual balls. On a clean work service create a pattern of alternating colours. Kneed the mixture together until you can see swirls throughout your mixture, be careful not to over work your mixture as you could end up with a solid colour. You will, of course, have more of the plain mixture so sometimes place two of these together.

6. On a floured service roll the combined mixture out, you want your dough to be around 1/2 cm - 1cm in thickness. Using a heart shaped cookie cutter cut the shapes out and place them on the lined baking sheet. Take the leftovers and gently roll out again, be wary that each time your roll the mixture out more of the pink will bleed through the dough. Repeat till all your mixture has been used.
7. Bake in the oven for 12-17 minutes, or until you have your desired biscuit snap.
