2 sticks of butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup confectioner’s sugar
2 egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon orange zest
2 1/4 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
vanilla and chocolate frosting
Beat 2 sticks of butter, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, and 3/4 cup confectioner’s sugar until fluffy.
Beat in 2 egg yolks, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and 1 teaspoon orange zest.
Whisk 2 1/4 cups flour and 1/4 teaspoon salt; stir into the butter mixture, then chill for 2 hours.
While mixture is chillin’, eat zest-less orange to help prevent scurvy.
Roll out to 1/8 inch thick, then cut into 2-inch rounds and chill for 30 minutes.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes at 350.
Cool, then spread with vanilla frosting on one side and chocolate on the other.
Result: Not bad but not really Black & White cookies. I’m pretty sure real Black & White cookies don’t use cake frosting so its a little bit different. Also, 1 teaspoon of orange zest is 1 teaspoon too much. Some of the cookies were a little too zesty.
Look to the cookie!
