Checkers biscuit


1 cup all purpose flour/maida
1/2 cup vanaspati/shortening
3/4 cup sugar powdered
2 tbsp cocoa powder
Bit of vanilla essence

Sieve the sugar and flour together to remove any lumps. Divide into two portions. To one portion, add the essence and mix well. Add half the vanaspati little by little and keep mixing till you get a dough. To the rest of the flour sugar mix, add cocoa powder and sieve once more. Add the remaining vanaspati little by little and mix to get a dough. Pack both the dough in separate plastic sheets and set in fridge for 10 minutes.

Roll both the dough separately to medium thickness making a rectangle.

Cut into long strips and arrange them alternatively as in the picture below.

Now cut horizontal strips and join two pieces with contrasting colours as in the picture below.

Preheat oven to 180 degrees and bake for 8-10 minutes till done.
