Delightful, crisp and absolutely heavenly, these Mango chocolate cookies are absolutely drool worthy and worth a try. Light, buttery, these cookies are really delightful in taste requiring fewer ingredients and besides these are simple to prepare.

Most find preparing swirl/pinwheel cookies intimidating but it’s actually simple if you follow the steps, you would get it right. If you do not desire to prepare them as Swirl cookies, then you can design them as checkerboard or alternate shaped cookie design too, check my Vanilla chocolate cookies design

The beauty of this recipe is that if you do not wish to combine the two, you can always just bake either chocolate cookies or mango cookies. The combination of the two, of course, gives the best taste

You can check the below collection of Mango desserts if you are as crazy about mangoes like meΒ πŸ™‚ . I have good collection of cheesecake, cookies, cupcakes, cakes, pudding, drinks etc.

Make these cookies this weekend and surprise your family and friends with a tasty treat πŸ˜€

Notes:

*For stronger Mango flavor, add few drops of mango essence, this is optional

*I have used sweet mango puree so sugar was perfect for my taste, you can always adjust the sugar if desired

*Rolled dough should be thin, neither thick nor too thin else it would crack while rolling

**The dough log should be just firm, this will help in easy slicing of the cookies. If the dough has turned warm, then just wrap it and refrigerate

***Always roll the dough tightly, else there would be air pockets in between, this will not create perfect swirls

***The cookie dough can be frozen upto 2 months
