COOKIE DOUGH

  1. dry ingredients
    • sift the cake flour, sift cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt
    • fully whisk them all together
  2. wet ingredients
    • prepare another bowl, whisk butter and sugar together
    • when the mixture become creamy, add the egg, add the vanilla extra
    • mix them all together
  3. mix dry and wet ingredients
    • when the dough is nicely combined, it can be shaped and put directly in the oven
    • or put in the fridge to chill for 30 minutes, it’ll be much easier to be shaped into any patterns you designed

COOKIE SHAPES

I divide the chocolate dough and vanilla dough into different-sized pieces, and then stick together based on the monogram types

CHECKERBOARD PATTERNS

  1. cube to slices
    • have the vanilla cookie dough shaped in a cube and rectangular slices
    • have the chocolate cookie dough shaped in the same way
    • brush some water on the top of the dough surface, gently stick them together to create layers
  2. slice to strips
    • divide each batch into four slices, brush some water again, reversely stick them together
    • now we can actually see the checkerboard patterns, they look just like Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene pattern
    • again, put them into the fridge to chill for 30 minutes
    • when the dough is chill enough, it can be directly divided into slices and baked
  3. add a wrap
    • we can also prepare a flat dough, have the checkerboard dough wrapped by the flat dough to secure them sticked together
    • put them into the fridge for 30 minutes to chill again
  4. final cookie cuts
    • now it’s the fun part, let’s divide each cube into 6 cookie slices, Voila~ canvas of Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene and Damier Azur are both beautifully created!
