Baking… NYC Deli Black & Whites (a.k.a. Half Moon Cookies)

My husband loves his mother’s Half Moon Cookies – a soft chocolate cake cookie with creamy white and chocolate frosting on top. Since I can never compete with Mom, I searched the vast online archives for a vetted recipe.

Thanks to Lori @ Lori Bites for this recipe. She’s did a lot of testing to get her perfect “ultimate authentic New York style Black & White Cookie”.

Especially for Handsome, fresh from the oven, Speckled Moon Cookies.
