Chocolate Marble German Cookies

It's cookies again in my kitchen! I am going to continue baking cookies until Chinese New Year. Hopefully I will be able to complete my long list of interesting CNY cookies that I wanted to bake. I got to keep the momentum going or else i'll just procrastinate. I can't let the lazy bug to stop me again (this year)!

So here is it, Today's Baked ~ the famous Melt In Your Mouth German Cookies. If you have been blog hopping or active in FB food groups, you will know that this cookies are very light and crumbly. It is very delicate and must be handle with extra care before bake.

When I was googling for the recipe, it was easy to choose which recipe to adapt because all the recipes are the same and they linked back to Min's blog. Just when I was about to conclude my search, I stumbled upon Ann's Chocolate Marbled Cookies. They were gorgeous! I love the marbled effect on the cookies and hence decided to adapt her recipe.
