black and white cookies

to conclude my recent series of posts on miki & tammy’s cooking and baking adventures we have black and white cookies.  unfortunately, we end on a sad note because these cookies did not turn out as they were supposed to…

black and white cookies are delicious – it’s a slightly lemon-y, cake-y cookie with half covered in chocolate icing and the other in vanilla icing.  yum!  though these cookies tasted good, making them was quite an adventure.  it started out simple enough – we made the cookie dough and put it on the cookie sheet…

  

then we gently pressed the dough as directed in the recipe…

and then it went downhill from there… they came out of the oven burnt on the edges and all funny shaped.  it was a mess!

yikes right?  sadly each batch turned out the same and we still don’t know what we did wrong.  but we carried on and made the icing…

     

once all the cookies were cooled, we frosted the cookies.  fortunately, the icing helped the cookies look a little better but they still weren’t as nice and pretty as they looked in the original recipe.  oh well…

and look how big they are!  they are like half the size of our friend, teresa’s head!

even though our black and white cookies weren’t the best, i’m looking forward to lots more cooking and baking adventures with tammy!
