Black and White Cookie Giveaway


The Black and White Cookie Company has kindly agreed to do a giveaway. Black and White cookies are famous in New York City when I was last there I had a few he he, they are so good, like a cookie but a little like a cake, with one half coated in chocolate and one half with white icing. They are perfect with a good cup of coffee and great to share. I love this company as its started by a real Entrepreneur. He saw the gap in the market to ship this tasty cookie around the country and share one of NYC's historical cookies.

Heres a little about the company, all you have to do is leave a comment (US Residents only, sorry) and I will pick a winner at random to receive a pack of 12 cookies to share with your loved ones. I know I am a dietitian but I honestly believe a small cookie once in while can fit into a balanced meal plan!
I will announce the winner on friday.

About Us

The Black and White Cookie Company was conceptualized by Joshua Auerbach, a long time fan of the Black and White Cookie. Joshua was struck by the conspicuous absence of the treat outside of New York City. In February of 2001, he registered blackandwhitecookies.com. Proof of concept was rapid as email after email arrived from ex-New Yorkers, tourists, and others eager to purchase the cookies.

Excited to meet the increasing requests for authentic New York Black & White’s, Joshua sought advice from a family friend, a German baker who owned several bakeries in New York City at the time of the origin of Black & White Cookies. The baker gave Joshua a great recipe to start with.

The Cookie

Joshua worked diligently for over 3 years to refine the recipe, adding a tasty touch to a timeless classic. He took the recipe and made it even better; crisp around the edges, soft in the middle with that perfect hint of lemon. Our Black and Whites are truly the
best Black and White Cookies on earth!

and if you want to make them:



or Amanda from Amanda's Cookin has a great recipe for them



Has anyone ever had one of these?

  3. I have yet to find a GOOD black and white cookie in LA. Most seem to think it's just a sugar cookie coated 1/2 in chocolate icing and half in white icing -ick

    Congrats on the giveaway...that's a nice one!

  9. Boy am I glad to hear you say as a dietitian you are OK with a small cookie on occasion. I agree, but I find I have some students that feel this is completely unacceptable. I think they are misguided by media and health food craze and still have a lot to learn about the science behind it and the human body. I do not really know of any dietitian that says you can never have a cookie.

    Yes, I have had these. I am Jewish and these are popular in Jewish deli's, hence they are all over NYC. I am entering...please...please...please, I have a US address where my mommy lives and I use this.

  11. I love these cake-y cookies! Although I've had them IN New York on perhaps one or two occasions, they were familiar enough in DC and NC when we lived there to be relatively available in coffeeshops and bakeries. How I miss them!
