Mini Black and White Cookies

Black and white cookies are a classic New York cookie.  I have fond memories of my parents taking my sister and I to our local bakery, the Rockland Bakery, every Sunday to buy bread for the week.  We would pull hot fresh bread off the conveyor belts and eat them right on the spot.  When it was time to pay, they would let us get one huge black and white cookie.  Everyone has their own strategy on how to eat a black and white cookie.  My first bite into the cookie was always both the black and white parts at the same time.  Last week, I made mini black and white cookies but also in additional colors to make it more fun.  I got the recipe from the Smitten Kitchen because I thought her pictures and examples were the easiest to follow.  I gave the pink ones to my Sister for her birthday and the blue ones for a new baby boy.  Since I’ve made these mini black and white cookies, I’m starting to see them everywhere.  It’s amazing how a little cookie can bring back so many childhood memories.
