A soft, domed black and white cookie can be enjoyed outside of New York City. Recreate the classic with this recipe.
By Lizzy Wolff
I don’t know if you guys know this, but I lived in New York for a number of years. Most of my best friends live there so I’m still really attached to it. But even before New York was a glimmer in my mind, I was eating black and white cookies in Miami, where I was raised. So long story short, pretty readers, these cookies are a big deal to me.
I tried three recipes before I decided on this one. You’d be surprised what some people try to pass off as classic black and white cookies. Here’s how you know the real thing: there is a hint of lemon in the white icing. The cookie is soft, browned on the bottom, and slightly domed. The heavens open up when you eat it.
