I've seen people get really creative with this cookie recipe when it comes to making them in different shapes.  For example, shape of a daisy with the middle being a small chocolate ball and pedals with a mix of white and chocolate or like a checker board.  I chose a simple "marble" look because I was in a hurry.

1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
250 gr unsalted butter (room temperature)
1/2 cup cooking oil
1/2 cup yogurt
1 package vanilla
1 egg
1 tablespoon cocoa
  • Mix all the ingredients (except coco) together.  Add enough flour to make a soft dough.  It should not stick to your hands. Let it rest for 10 minutes
  • Cut the dough in half
  • Add cocoa in one of the halfs
  • Make two balls with each.  With white at the bottom and chocolate on the top roll out.  I like to roll them out separately same size and put one on top of the other
  • Roll them together to look like a log
  • Cut pieces about 2 cm and flatten with your hands
  • Put on a cookie sheet
  • Preheat oven 350 degrees
  • Cook until the sides are hard (approx 20 minutes)
