  • Beat first 4 ingredients with mixer until well blended. Add flour and baking soda; mix well. Divide dough in half. Mix half the dough with chocolate. Divide each portion in half again (into 2 white and 2 chocolate pieces).
  • Lightly flour work surface and shape each portion into 1-1/2-inchx6-inch log. Roll each log in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Remove the dough logs from the refrigerator. Unwrap logs of vanilla dough and logs of chocolate dough. Cut the vanilla log in half lengthwise; then cut each piece in half lengthwise again (you should have 4 pieces of dough); set aside. Repeat with chocolate dough. Lay a strip of chocolate dough next to a strip of vanilla dough lengthwise so they are touching. Top the chocolate strip with a vanilla strip; and top the vanilla strip with a chocolate strip. Gently press all 4 strips together so they adhere to one another. Repeat cutting and assembling with remaining log of vanilla and chocolate dough. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour.
  • Heat oven to 350ºF. Cut roll into 1/4-inch thick slices; place 2 inches apart on parchment-covered baking sheets. Bake 8 to 10 min. or until cookies are lightly browned. Let stand on baking sheets 2 min; remove to wire racks. Cool completely.
