CHOco Vanilla Cookies 

  
Chocolate Vanilla Cookies, are a perfect combination of flavours and Colour. Thin and Crisp this cookie goes sooooo well with coffee. 

This is one of the cookies from my cookie box for this Christmas. I made Lintzer cookies, Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti, Chocolate Crinckle Cookies, Butter Cookies, Almond Lemon Cookies & Chocolate Vanilla Cookies this Christmas for gifting and for family. Gifting a box of mixed cookies seemed more interesting than just one variety.
