    Make me miss New York, I'll have to make these soon. One of my favorites! People in Colorado don't know what I'm talking about when I say Black and White Cookies, I get blank stares. And good luck finding then in any local bakery. Can't wait to introduce these to people here. Mmmmm.... Thanks So MUCH!

    Yummy! This looks like a cake common in Germany. It's called "Amerikaner" which translates "Americans". Seriously! :) You will find it in every bakery here.
    Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    thank you! thank you! thank you! I can't begin to tell you how excited I am to find this recipe. These are my husbands favorites and he only gets them when we get back up to New York, which just isn't often enough. I can't wait to make these. He will be so surprised.

    We ate these up! While I was working with the icing, my 2-year-old slipped up behind me and ate EIGHT cookies before I saw him! I made another batch the next day, and my husband ate 10. They both liked the cookies better without the icing. They're really easy that way, so I'll be making a lot of these!
