Instructions

  • Mix the Emborg Unsalted Butter and sugar together with a mixer until well combined.

  • Add the vanilla and lemon extract, and gradually add the flour while mixing at low speed.

  • Place the dough onto a clean surface and knead for 2 minutes. Divide the dough into two equal portions.

  • Sprinkle cocoa powder over one of the dough portions. Knead the dough until well mixed.

  • For each dough portion, place it between 2 sheets of cling wrap or baking paper. Use a rolling pin to shape each dough into 18 cm squares, about 1 cm thick. With a sharp knife, slice each square to 2 cm-wide long strips.

  • Preheat the oven to 175 °C and line a baking tray with baking paper.

  • Place plastic wrap on the work surface. Place 1 white dough strip between 2 strips of chocolate dough strips on the plastic. Mix egg and water and brush it on the top and in between the strips. Press the strips together gently.

  • Add the second layer by alternating the colours and brush with the egg wash. Repeat again to finish the third layer with 2 chocolate strips and 1 white strip. Wrap the dough log in plastic.

  • Place in the fridge for 30 minutes.

  • Slice each cookie log into 5–6 mm thick slices and place them on the lined baking tray. Bake for 10–12 minutes. Remove from the oven and place the cookies on a wire rack until completely cooled.

Serve the festive cookies with your favourite drinks.
