Hello! These cookies were sold at Jordan Marsh. They were big cookies that
sometimes had a quarter size dot of very firm chocolate in the center.‘Pretty
sure it was Jordan Marsh, but Burdines was around during that time, too. They
didn’t taste chocolate; barely looked it.
Thanks for your help!
I could not find any mention at all of a Chinese Marble Cookie from either Jordan Marsh or Burdines.
Most recipes for "Chinese Marble Cookies" are for sugar cookies with streaks or swirls of chocolate
in them to give a "marble" effect, like "Marble Cake" has. No chocolate dollop in the center.

I did find one recipe called "Chinese Marble Cookies," with a blob of chocolate frosting in the center.
See: Bakery Style Chinese Marble Cookies
I found several recipes that were just called "Chinese Cookies" , with no "marble" in their name.
These are basically sugar cookies with nuts in the dough and with a bit of chocolate frosting in
the center. See:
Bakery Style Chinese Cookies
These and similar recipes are all that I could find - none with any link to Jordan Marsh or Burdines.
I'll post this for reader input.
