Picture Frame Cookies Recipe


  • 113g very soft unsalted butter
  • 32g icing sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 16g cornflour 
  • 96g plain flour
  • pinch of salt
  • 50g dark chocolate, chopped
  • 50g white chocolate, chopped 


  • Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F. 
  • Using a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, cream the butter, sugar, and vanilla extract until very creamy.
  • Gradually beat in the cornflour and plain flour. Continue to beat the batter until it is very light and fluffy. 
  • Transfer batter to a piping bag fitted with an open star tip piping nozzle.
  • On a lined baking tray, pipe individual dots of batter next to one another in circular or square shapes, leaving a space in the middle. 
  • Transfer to oven and bake until cookies turn light golden brown, keep a careful eye on the cookies as they won’t take long to cook. 
  • Let cookies cool completely on the tray, then transfer them to a cooling rack. Be careful when transferring them as they are fragile and can fall apart if you transfer them too soon.
  • Melt the dark chocolate in a glass bowl over a pan of simmering water. Transfer to a piping bag. Repeat for white chocolate and transfer to a separate piping bag.
  • Snip the tip off each piping bag containing the melted white and dark chocolate. 
  • Fill the middle of each cookie with enough melted dark chocolate to fill the space. Immediately drop three small dots of white chocolate on the melted dark chocolate. Using a toothpick, swirl each dot of white chocolate through the dark chocolate to create a pattern. Do not over swirl. 
  • Allow chocolate to cool and harden.
