Growing up in New Jersey, black & white cookies were a staple of any good bakery or deli (I know my NJ readers remember that bakery at the Bergen Mall with the killer black & whites). They are less common in the Philadelphia area, but I saw them yesterday in the local bagel shop and thought it would be a fun recipe to try. I was right! It was also my first time making homemade frosting, which was a lot less daunting than I imagined thanks to the food processor. Side note: I got a food processor for Christmas and am continually amazed at what it can do.
This recipe comes from The Best Bake Sale Ever Cookbook, a book I got in the bargain section of Barnes & Noble awhile ago because it had this recipe in it. They turned out great and are very close to what I remember as a kid. Pour yourself a glass of milk and enjoy!
