Food Friday: Black and White Cookies

Published by at 11:39 pm under Food,Recipes

Black and White Cookies

My friend Coco loves Black and White Cookies (aka the interracial cookie). Recently (okay, it was like months ago, but that’s my how my timeline is) she came back from New York raving about them and how she can’t get them here. So I told her I would make her some. I’m going to give them to her tomorrow so hopefully she doesn’t read the blog tonight 🙂

Black and White Cookies

I used this Black and White Cookie Recipe from AllRecipes. I’ve read that the recipe from The All-American Cookie Book by Nancy Baggett is also good. However, I don’t actually know what these taste like so I will get feedback from Coco and see how the AllRecipes version compares to the real thing before trying a second time.

I had never had them before, but I thought these tasted pretty good 🙂

Here are some photos from the making:

Flour

Half all-purpose flour and half cake flour

Butter and sugar

Butter and sugar

Cookie batter

The batter looks so yummy!

Large tablespoons

The recipe calls for tablespoon scoops. These were big tablespoons to make only 24 cookies. But bigger is better in this case.

Done cookies

The finished cookies really are very cake-y.

Chocolate frosting in double boiler

I love an excuse to use my double boiler 🙂

    oh man I was surprised to get these cookies last night – let me tell you they are PERFECT. Cake-y cookie, delicious frosting with great contrast between the black and white. Spot on. I’m glad to know that I needn’t go far to get my favorite cookie anymore.

    I would like to offer my services to QC the other recipe. I’m here for you. 😉

    By far, the best black and white cookie I’ve had outside of the tri-state area.
