Black & White Cookies

This Sunday my friend Ali and I got together to make a recipe she found on-line: black & white cookies. Growing up in New York, Ali's used to some amazing black & white cookies and wanted to recreate them here in DC.

We started out by making the giant cake-like cookies. While the cookies were cooling on the counter we began to mix together the confectioners sugar icing.

We tried to spread the white icing evenly on each cookie, but we're not super skilled yet, so some of the icing oozed off the cookies.

The last step was to take the rest of the white icing back to the stove to add the bricks of chocolate. Then back to spreading we went.

I think for amateurs we made some amazing cookies. And I have to compliment us because this was the most involved cookie recipe I've ever made.


  1. Oh yum. Those look phenomenal. I've never made black and white cookies, but now I MUST have them after seeing your pictures. Hope you had a great weekend!
