This week’s Baked Sunday Mornings selection is Black and White Cookies. I had made black and white cookies one time before; I think it was from a David Lebovitz recipe. My husband remembered that I had made them before and sounded a little surprised that I was attempting them again. You see, last time the cookies were very delicious, but I got very frustrated with frosting - it was super-runny and the colors blobbed together. Very disappointing. Anyway, this time I was careful to make sure the frosting did not get too drippy and took the excellent tip in the book to use a piping bag to make them look nice and neat.
Although the cookies did not turn out quite as perfect as ones that you see in a bakery (and I totally did not notice the instruction to frost the flat side of the cookie), they are about a million times more aesthetically pleasing than my first batch. And once again, very delicious. Since it was several years ago, I don’t remember exactly what they tasted like, but I think this recipe is a bit cakier and I like it! You can find the recipe here and view the other bakers’ links here.
I also made last week’s Sunrise Key Lime Tarts, then somehow my Sunday slipped away from me and I didn’t get around to posting them. I have made key lime pie many times (it happens to be one of Josh’s more requested treats) and thanks to Cook’s Illustrated, I make a pretty good one. I was happy to try the Baked version and we loved the pretzel crust – I am plotting more dessert ideas to make with it. You can find the recipe here.
