Two-color tea pastes: the recipe everyone will ask you about
We love to always have a cookie or pasta in the pantry for that mid-afternoon coffee, but generally we try to make them homemade, much better than industrial pastries that have usually lost their butter flavor. Today we bring you two-color tea pastries, a real temptation to start and not stop.
If when you see them you have found them complicated with their two colors, you should know that they are easier to do than they seem. Simply by following a very simple order of placement of the two masses with which we are going to work, you can get these colorful cookies that will leave your guests open-mouthed, as they will surely keep asking you how you did them.

We will start by making a volcano with the flour. In the center we add the butter along with the icing sugar and we unite with the tips of our fingers, but not yet mix with the flour. Once we see them united, we toss the beaten egg and continue joining with the fingers and gradually incorporating the flour into this mixture. You could also prepare this in a kitchen robot.
Work quickly without kneading excessively and form a thick cylinder. This in turn is divided into two parts, adding to one of them cocoa powder and kneading again with the tips of your fingers until it has been incorporated and we obtain a dark brown mass.
We roll the masses separately until we get two cylinders about three centimeters in diameter. We cut lengthwise in half with a sharp knife being careful not to crush the cylinder.
We paint with a little water the two halves of the same color and we exchange the sides of each of the cylinders, gluing them well and making them roll slightly so that they are again round.
We cut again and we paint two halves again with a little water, joining two parts of different cylinders again so that there is white mass with alternate black. Freeze for half an hour.
We preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius with heat up and down and cut the cylinders into pastes about 8 millimeters thick. We have them on a baking tray with paper and bake for fifteen minutes.
With what to accompany the two-color tea pastes
The two-color tea pastries will remind you of their taste as the classic snack cookie for snacks that you had as children. With a crisp and delicate texture, they are perfectly preserved for a few days in an airtight container isolated from moisture.Tags: Vegetables And Legumes Desserts Fish
