Why choose between the two greats, vanilla and chocolate? Each bite of this art deco shortbread has just the right amount of both. Stacking the dough in alternating colors and then smushing them into a roll is as easy as making shapes with Play-Doh. The method makes for a fancy-looking swirl that novices can succeed at too.

The secret to the fudgiest, most chocolaty brownies is cocoa powder—not melted chocolate. We borrowed chocolate expert Alice Medrich’s technique, then added a cream cheese topping for tangy balance. Don’t overthink your camo design; the brownies will look even better when sliced.

Try to find a variety that’s salted (if you can’t, just add salt to taste before beginning the recipe). A super smooth peanut butter works best; I like the one from…
