Rolling them and placing alternatively to get checkerboard pattern is little time consuming but it surely comes better by practice. We need to roll the dough and place layers of vanilla and chocolate alternatively to get squares. I used scale and measured them while cutting to get equal squares. I made three batches of these cookies. You can form 9 or 12  check pattern as you prefer. I made 12 check pattern first later thought nine checks looked good and made rest of the cookies in that pattern. If you are looking for baking cookies without oven, check my ghee cookies recipe.
