Black and White Cookie Recipe

Now, here's one that's been around since my grandma started baking cookies. Black and white cookies are nice to look at and good to eat. It's a recipe I'm sure to turn to when this Christmas holiday is here again because it is one that rolls out easily to make those lovely shapes. Fun to make these black and white festive cookies.

The recipe below has jaunty stripes of vanilla and chocolate flavored dough. If you like, you can experiment with combining the doughs in other shapes, try making checkerboards, pinwheels, or half moons.

Preheat your oven to 355 degrees F.

Black and White Cookies Recipe Ingredients:

1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
(HINT: use butter, they sure taste better even if there are a few more calories. Oh MY! You’re eating a cookie, not a piece of celery. Forget the diet for once!) 1/2 cup white sugar (granulated)
1 egg yolk
1 -1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 -1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. salt
3 Tbsp. milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 square (1 oz.) unsweetened chocolate

Black and White Cookie Directions:

In a large bowl and electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until creamy; beat in egg yolk. In another bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, and salt. In a small cup, combine milk and vanilla. Add dry ingredients to butter mixture alternately with milk mixture, blending thoroughly after each addition.

In top of a double boiler over simmering water or in a small pan over lowest possible heat, melt chocolate, stirring constantly; let cool slightly. Divide dough in half; take 1 tablespoon of dough from one half and add it to the other half. Stir chocolate into smaller portion of dough, blending until well combined.

Shape each portion of dough into a roll 1 -1/2 inches in diameter. Wrap each in wax paper; flatten sides to make square logs. Refrigerate until firm (at least 3 hours) or for up to 3 days.

Unwrap black and white cookie dough. Using a sharp knife, slice each log lengthwise into fourths. Then reassemble logs, using 2 dark slices and 2 light slices for each, alternating colors to make stripes. Gently press layers together to eliminate interior air pockets.

Cut logs crosswise into 1/8 inch thick slices (if layers start to separate, refrigerate for an hour to firm up). Place slices about 1 inch apart on greased baking sheets. Bake black and white cookies in a 355 degrees oven for about 10 to 15 minutes or until light golden. Transfer cookies to racks and let them cool completely. Store cookies in airtight containers.

Black and White Cookie recipe makes about 3 dozen cookies.

Grandma's Cookies and Tea

As I watched the sun sink low in the west, I reminisced about my grandma and how she loved the sunset. She would sit on the swing on the porch, eating one of her famous sugar cookies and sipping her cup of tea. She would watch the big, round, yellow ball kiss the horizon and softly say a prayer thanking God for another beautiful day.

However, during the day she did what she loved best. She would get out her recipe box and go through her cookie recipes to see what she thought would appeal to her loved ones. She knew that my favorite was oatmeal and raisin and my brother’s was brownies with frosting on them. My sister was partial to Grandma’s peanut butter cookies.

She would finally decide on which cookie she was going to bake that day. No matter what Grandma made they were always a hit!!

Oh how I miss my Grandma’s home baking. Grandma left her cooking sheets and cookie recipes for me, but somehow, no matter how hard I try, I can never get mine to taste the same as Grandmas! But I won’t give up because I am sure one day, my granddaughters will reminisce about their Grandma’s cookies and try to get them to taste as good as mine!

In case you haven’t heard … gourmet style cookies are to 2013 what cupcakes were for 2011! The cookie's somewhat dull, predictable reputation has undergone a complete makeover from glazed and filled to become the latest trend in the pastry scene. Artisan and “designer” cookies are popping up at local Farmer’s Markets, specialized bakeries and are even being featured on menus in restaurants, as a delightfully delicious dessert.
