schackrutor / swedish chess squares

These cookies are an old Swedish classic, they are super easy to make, and tasty! Try it out!



Recept / Recipe

5-5 1/2 dl / 2-2.2 cups of flour

1 dl / 0.4 cups of sugar

200 g / 7 ounces of butter

1 1/2 tablespoon of cacao powder

almost 1 tablespoon of vanilla sugar

1. Heat the oven to 390 Fahrenheit / 200°C .

2. Put all ingredients in a food processor except the vanilla sugar and cacao powder . Split the dough in two. Mix the vanilla sugar into one of the halves, and the cacao powder into the other half. If the dough is very loose, put in some more flour, or put in the fridge for about an hour.

3.  Split both the doughs in two again, roll out in long strings all 4 equally thick. Then put one vanilla sting next to a chocolate dough string, and on top you do the reversed order. This created chess squares when you cut them.

4.  Cut the cookies in about 1-2 cm slices, and bake in the oven for 5-7 min, when they get a tiny bit of color on the sides, take them out, let cool.

5.  Enjoy!

P.S You can freeze the cookies!
