Chocolate Peanut Butter Marble Cookies

The holidays put me in the mood for cookies! Of course, as you may already know, I love and adore cookies.  Since it is the holidays I am in the mood for pretty cookies that taste really good.  Those kind of cookies are not only good for nibbling on as you wrap presents but for great for giving as gifts.  While thumbing through my cookie folder, and yes I do have a whole folder devoted to cookie recipes, I came across an old culinary...

The first of these is a spice called asafoetida, a deeply pungent smelling spice that, when cooked, adds a smooth onion flavor.   A little of this spice makes a big difference as far as complexity of flavor is concerned.  The other ingredient is chickpea flour.  I was inspired to try this from a cooking show where the presenter made sweet potato...
