One of our family friends messaged me and asked if I would be able to make some black and white cookies for their 50th high school reunion. I’ve never made black and white cookies so I started off with a trial. Black and white cookies are not just a sugar cookie with black and white icing. It’s an NYC classic and it’s more of a cakey cookie, really thick with chocolate and vanilla icing. They don’t take their Black and White Cookies lightly. It’s serious stuff.
So I did a taste test. And forgot half the flour. Oops. But I still knew they were going to be good, so off I went with the second batch. Success, major success. then 100 cookies later and they found their way to a high school reunion.
I just love these because they are really impressive but not really difficult. That’s the dream, isn’t it?
