BLACK AND WHITE COOKIES

*Elaine holding a BABKA and Jerry holding the famous BLACK AND WHITE COOKIE*


Yesterday I Made:
BLACK AND WHITE COOKIES for DESSERT.
Soft, sponge cake-like shortbread cookies frosted half with vanilla frosting and the other with dark chocolate frosting.

Ever since watching Jerry eat a BLACK AND WHITE COOKIE on SEINFELD, I told myself that one day I would make a homemade VEGAN version.
Thanks to Hannah, I finally got the chance.

Yummy,beautiful looking and so much fun to eat!!!
Where do you start?
The white or the black?
Tough decision.
My husband bit the chocolate and I bit it right in the middle.
As Jerry says "THE TRICK TO EATING A BLACK AND WHITE COOKIE ,ELAINE, IS YOU WANT TO GET SOME BLACK AND SOME WHITE IN EACH BITE. NOTHING MIXES BETTER THAN VANILLA AND CHOCOLATE."


Last Week I Made:
CHOCOLATE BABKA for DESSERT.
Recipe from The Vegan Table By Colleen Patrick-Goudreau and also from the same SEINFELD episode as the BLACK AND WHITE COOKIE.
Sweet yeast bread filled with melted chocolate and cocoa powder.
It turned out a little too dry and didn't taste sweet enough.

I love this post! My family was way into Seinfeld--I should make some of those black and whites for when my mom visits next week. I always wonder how bakeries get the line between black and white so perfectly straight.

Too bad the bubka didn't work out!

Now you just need to make a marble rye!
