Black and White Cookies
I could probably deal with only eating one of these actually! Maybe it’s because I didn’t eat these growing up and there’s no sense of nostalgia or anything working here for me! They look great, and they DO taste good, just not anything I’d rave about!
So here it is (bad photos and everything!)
mmmm butter, sugar and eggs!
Bake these babies up at 350 F for about 15 minutes until they’re Golden!
Black and White Cookies (recipe from Joythebaker.com)
- 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2/3 cups buttermilk *or add a tsp of vinegar to your milk*
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2/3 cups unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 lrg eggs
- 2 cups icing sugar
- 1 tsp light corn syrup
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 tbsp hot water
- 3 tbsp melted butter
- 1 tbsp light corn syrup
- 4 ounces semi sweet chocolate
To make cookies
Preheat your oven to 350 F
Whisk together dry ingredients and set aside
Stir buttermilk and Vanilla together set aside
Beat butter and sugar together until it’s light and fluffy (about 3 minutes) Add eggs one at a time and beat until well incorporated. Mix in 1/3 of the flour mix, flollowed by some of the buttermilk. Alternate beginning and ending with flour.
Scrape down the bowl, mix it up some more until it’s smooth.
Spoon batter onto prepared pans (about 1/4 cup each) leaving a lot of room for cookies to spread. Bake until cookies are Golden brown and spring back when touched. Transfer cookies to a rack to cool off and get to work on the Glaze.
To make the Glaze
In a bowl, mix the powdered sugar with the vanilla, corn syrup, and water.
Flip cookies upside down and glaze one half of the cookie (i used the back of a spoon for this)
In a seperate bowl, melt the butter and the chocolate in the microwave. Add the corn syrup and stir until smooth. Voila! Chocolate Glaze. Glaze the other half of the cookie and let them hang out a while until the Glaze sets OR if you’re impatient, eat one right away!
