Chocolate Swirl Cookies




For the Cookie Dough:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

For the Chocolate Filling:

  • 4 oz semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract



  1. Prepare the Cookie Dough:
    • In a large bowl, cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Mix in the vanilla extract.
    • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Divide the dough in half and flatten each half into a disk. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  2. Prepare the Chocolate Filling:
    • In a medium saucepan, combine the chopped semi-sweet chocolate, unsalted butter, heavy cream, granulated sugar, and cocoa powder. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture is smooth and the chocolate is fully melted. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract. Allow the filling to cool to room temperature.
  3. Assemble the Cookies:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
    • On a lightly floured surface, roll out one of the dough disks into a rectangle about 1/4 inch thick. Spread half of the chocolate filling evenly over the dough, leaving a small border around the edges.
    • Carefully roll up the dough into a tight log, starting from one of the long edges. Wrap the log in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 15-20 minutes. Repeat with the remaining dough and chocolate filling.
  4. Bake the Cookies:
    • Remove the logs from the refrigerator and slice them into 1/4-inch thick rounds. Place the rounds on the prepared baking sheets, spacing them about 2 inches apart.
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
