Marble cookies

These marble cookies are as tasty as they are pretty!

  • Takes 1 hr + cooling
  • Makes about 25
  • Easy


  • 200g ready-made vanilla cookie dough
  • 375ml fondant
  • few drops black food colouring
  • 1 egg white
  • 250ml icing sugar
  • edible gold dust (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 160°C. Roll the cookie dough out on a lightly floured surface to 4mm thickness
    and cut into 4.5cm hearts with a cookie cutter. Place on baking trays lined with baking paper
    and bake in batches for about 8-10 minutes or until light golden. Leave to cool on the tray.
  2. Divide the fondant into 2 balls. Knead a few drops of food colouring into 1 of the balls on
    a cornflour dusted surface until grey. Shape both balls into logs and twist together. Gently
    knead and twist until marbled. Roll out on a cornflour dusted surface to 3mm thickness
    and cut out 4.5cm hearts.
  3. Beat the egg white and enough icing sugar together to reach the consistency of toothpaste.
    Spread a layer onto the cookies and top with a heart. Dust with gold dust, if you like.
