If you are like me, then sometimes it’s hard for you to pick which flavor chocolate or vanilla. That is why I created these delicious cookies! I came up with the name thinking of twist ice cream cones. That’s often what people get when they can’t pick, chocolate or vanilla?

These are one of my favorite cookies! They are like an upgrade of chocolate chip cookies! I love giving people options with food and with these you get both options chocolate and vanilla, together in one amazing, soft, flavorful cookie!

If you haven’t noticed I love combining art and food and that’s what I have tried to create here, something unique and made to impress, both in flavor and looks! These are luxurious!

Also, you can make these cookies with all vanilla on one side and all chocolate on the other rather than chocolate dough with white chips and vanilla dough with chocolate chips.

    Hi Jaclyn,

    The recipe says it yields 3 dozen. I was just curious if I want to half each dough, would I still use 1 egg per dough and half everything else? My apologies if I am confusing you.

    Thank you!

    Cyndi – you are so nice, thanks so much =)! That would probably work great, although you may need to refrigerate the dough first but I think that method may just be easier =). Thanks for your comment!

    Hi Jaclyn!

    I’ve recently discovered your blog and have enjoyed reading your ideas. Your pictures and descriptions are phenominal.

    Question – with the Twist Cookies, I see how you are taking a bit of each mixture and combining… had you tried forming each into a log and roll both together (think “Playdoh” or rolling-pin style) and then slice off the cookies? Just curious.

    When I get home, I may have to try it and see if that would be easier (for me). I’m deployed at the moment but am looking forward to playing with quite a few of your recipes very soon!
