NY Style Black and White Cookie

NY Style Black and White Cookie, 6x8, oil
Have you ever had one of these??? OMG these are my favorites!! When my mom was a little girl during the Great Depression her family lived above a bakery in Brooklyn, NY. and her father would buy her "black and white" cookies like this one. I grew up on Long Island, NY and we could get cookies like this at the bakery in town...mmmmmm yummy! Luckily for me these delicious treats have made their way to Connecticut in recent years and I can still enjoy them every once in while. For those of you who've never seen one of these they're really big, much bigger than your average chocolate chip cookie for instance and they're not really crispy like a cookie, they're actually a cake. Enjoy!
