One of my co-workers got married and is relocating to New York, so since today was her last day here, we decided to have a NYC-themed potluck to wish her well!
I decided to make black and white cookies. After perusing various recipes online, I decided to go with the NYT recipe, and using Smitten Kitchen’s suggestion of adding cocoa to make the color of the chocolate side much richer. And Deb of SK is right! They really are better eaten on the first or second day.
I noticed that although they were still good this morning, they felt a little denser or heavier than the night before. They were a pain to transport on the bus, because I had to place them as single layers in different containers, so as not to mess the tops.
They are not too difficult, but next time I might make my cookies huge, since it means less work in painting the tops of each individual top! Unless you like that sort of thing. I’ll definitely invest in a better brush. The brush I used kept getting loose bristles that would come out, so I had to be very careful not to get them lost in the glaze!
