Zebra Cookie




About: A little bit of everything.

I used two different color doughs to make this zebra pattern.
These cookies are crisp to taste,but not that fragile as usual butter cookies, because I added water and High-gluten flour to increase their tenacity.

Step 1: The Ingredients

Coco Dough
  • 30g High-gluten flour(bread flour)
  • 90g Low-gluten flour(Pastry flour)
  • 40g butter
  • 20g coco powder
  • 10g suger powder
  • 25g full egg
  • 15ml golden rum(or water)
White Dough
  • 30g High-gluten flour(bread flour)
  • 90g Low-gluten flour(Pastry flour)
  • 40g butter
  • 30g suger powder
  • 25g full egg
  • 15ml white rum or Cointreau(or water)
Yield: about 100 cookies.

Step 2: Make Dough

Cream butter and sugar.Add egg, rum and coco powder,stir to combine.
Add flour and stir,make them to a coco dough.
Make the white dough as the same way.

Step 3: Make Zebra Pattern Log

Press doughs to two pancake and put one overlay the other, press them gently but not evenly,or your zebra pattern will be too neat.
Cut them to 2 pieces.
Don't like the usual cookie dough, you will find the dough is a little elastic and hard to cut off ,it's all right ,because we used high-gluten flour and rum(water).
Put one part overlay the other,press again,make a parallel cut ,and stake up again, and again......
Repeat 4~6 times(depend on what resolution you want.)
Roll the dough to a log.

Step 4: Freeze

Now you get the zebra log. Cover it with plastic wrap and place in the fridge until firm.

Step 5: Slice and Baking

Remove the plastic wrap.
Slice dough into 3mm slices and place on tinfoil lined baking sheet.
Bake at 185℃ (365℉) for about 20 min.

Step 6: Enjoy!

    Made them today and I believe you may have made a mistake with the ingredient quantities? The resulting crackers had very little taste at all. I loved The look though. I'll check my other butter cookie recipie.
