Checkerboard Cookies 双色棋格饼干

人生如棋,有進就有退,有退就有進,
有得就有失,有失就有得。
退一步是為了進一步,
讓一步是為了下一步,
失一步是為了得一步。
丟卒才能保車,失小才可獲大。
棋盤雖小,退一步海闊天空。

双色棋格饼干很香脆, 一次体会两种口味,赞!
约定了圣诞节再Encore
Checkerboard Cookies are so adorable, you can taste both the chocolate and the vanilla flavours in one bite. I will make these cookies again for Christmas.
