Chocolate Peanut Butter Marble Cookie

My usual daily routine goes for a toss when Nehal is on school break and am literally on my toes to keep him productively occupied when he is done with his regular extra curricular activities. Luckily, I am done with most of my Christmas baking and gift packing. Will be baking fruit cake tonight and tomorrow.

Today I have yet another cookie post, an amazing recipe booked marked from Evil Shananigans. A buttery and fragrant marble cookie that makes for a perfect holiday treat. For a more detailed pictorial on how to make these cookies do visit Evil Shananigans.

    Hi Sailaja,

    You are definitely an inspiration to all your readers. Your passion and dedication to your work is amazing. I have tried out a lot of your recipes and they have all turned out very well. Your measurements and directions are perfect. Your bourbon cookies are a big hit with my daughter.

    This is the first time I am leaving a comment and question for you and if it is not too much of a hassle for you please reply. What would be a good replacement for peanut butter in this recipe, would Almond or cashew butter work consistency and taste wise? My daughter is allergic to peanuts but I know she would love these cookies.

    • http://sailusfood.com Sailu

      Happy to learn your daughter enjoys Bourbon cookies, Kirthi. Both Almond butter and Cashew butter will work in place of peanut butter. You will have to try and leave your feedback. :)

    Scrumptious marble cookies…soo tempting..

  • Liby

    Looks very tempting… what brand available in India do you use for cooking chocolate, chocolate chips… or do you use an imported brand?

    • http://sailusfood.com Sailu

      There are number of cooking chocolate brands available in India. I’ve tried quite a few brands like Lotus, Morde, Marco etc. I usually use Morde or imported chocolate.

  • bhavani

    dear sailaja,
    does using cornflour help in anyway while making cookies

    • http://sailusfood.com Sailu

      Cornflour yields a fine textured cookie and makes it crisp.

  • shilpa

    Dear Sailu,

    I really liked the way you packed the cookies……looks impressive !!!

    Could you tell us how you did that ? i mean did you get separate plastic bags or what ? If so, could you please tell me where you got them from ? Thanks so much !

    • http://sailusfood.com Sailu

      I used transparent gift wrapping sheets and colored ribbons. I just wrapped the cookies and tied them in colored ribbon. You will find the sheets and ribbons in any fancy/book stores. Usually fresh flowers are wrapped in these sheets (all florists have these sheets). You can ask them where they get these sheets.

    Hi sailu,
    I want to know if I could substitute peanut butter with something else as my children do not like it

    Neeta

    • http://sailusfood.com Sailu

      You could use cashew to toasted almond butter. Even Tahini (ground sesame paste) can be substituted.

    Hi, I really thank you a lot for posting such wonderful recipes. I am a great fan of this site. this is the first time I am leaving a comment here. Thanks for the time u have spent for these recipes, prep and taking pics of them… very useful. I am trying cookies for the first time, so had a small doubt, might be silly to youo but was not sure about the cup capacity which you have mentioned. when you say a cup, how much should it normally contain in terms of weight, not sure if it is a small cup like a katori size or a big one, since am not that experienced in baking stuff…Please clarify. very eager to try this recipe at home….
