Since we are all at home today you go to prepare delicious spiral biscuits with vanilla and chocolate? They are very easy to prepare two-color biscuits. The two coiled colors together create a visual effect somewhat’ hypnotic, as the effect of a pinwheel, or a spiral. They are proof biscuits beginner, despite seem complicated to prepare. You just have to take a normal short pastry. Divide into two parts and one part flavor with a natural vanilla (no vanillin, that is chemical aroma, I recommend) and the other with cocoa powder.
In the color difference, corresponds to a difference in taste, because the part of the biscuits is prepared with chocolate it is more bitter. This creates a delicious contrast in the mouth and makes these sweet spiral perfect for breakfast, dipped in a cup of warm milk. The kids will love them.

If you would like to look positively this strange period we are living, you might think that the time we spend time at home instead of at work, at Cinema, to the theater, at the restaurant, we could put it to good use. To spend more time with the people we love, be they adult or children. Rediscover the pleasure of preparing a meal or simple cookies together. To read that book lying on the bedside table for months. To remind us that we liked to paint, read, to cook, write and do other things for us all, first not to have more time on their hands. It will pass. Have a nice day.

The recipe of the spiral vanilla and chocolate biscuits is simple: the only precaution is to respect the rest and cooling times of the dough, so you get perfect spirals.
Put the flour on the work surface, Salt, sugar, softened butter and egg yolks. Knead until a smooth and homogeneous mixture. Weigh the dough and divide it into two equal halves. Add bourbon vanilla on one side and bitter cocoa on the other. Knead both pats separately to mix all the ingredients perfectly. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
Once the dough shortbread will be cold, lay them out on a lightly floured work surface with a rolling pin. The thickness should be about half a centimeter. You have to get two rectangles and rifilarli so that they are of the same size.
Overlap the two rectangles so that they fit perfectly, gently pass the rolling pin on the dough making a slight pressure, so as to seal the two layers between them. Roll the pastry rectangle on itself as tight as possible. Wrap the roll in plastic wrap and store it in the refrigerator for an hour or until it is well cold.
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees static. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Cut the cookie roll into many slices of equal thickness, giving each a more regular shape can. Arrange the biscuits on the baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until they are evenly golden. Remove from oven and let cool spiral biscuits vanilla and chocolate taste them before. Bon appétit!
