You get the best of both worlds with these chocolate and vanilla cookies. They're an appealing addition to any cookie tray. I usually serve them at the holidays, when they're often the first cookies to disappear, but you can have them any time of year. —Ruth Ann Stelfox, Raymond, Alberta

Ingredients

  • CHOCOLATE DOUGH:
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup baking cocoa
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
  • 5 ounces white baking chocolate, chopped
  • VANILLA DOUGH:
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
  • 4 ounces German sweet chocolate, chopped

Directions

  1. For chocolate dough, in a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 5-7 minutes. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in pecans and white chocolate.
  2. For vanilla dough, in another large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 5-7 minutes. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Combine the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in pecans and German chocolate. Cover and refrigerate both doughs for 2 hours.
  3. Divide both doughs in half. Shape each portion into a 12-in. roll; cover. Refrigerate until firm, about 3 hours.
  4. Uncover and cut each roll in half lengthwise. Place a chocolate half and vanilla half together, pressing to form a log; repeat with remaining dough. Cover and refrigerate until the dough holds together when cut, about 1 hour.
  5. Using a serrated knife, cut into 1/4-in. slices. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Bake at 350° until set, 8-10 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool.
