The black and white cookie revisited

This isn't my first black and white cookie project and probably won't be my last.  To read about my love affair with the black and white, click here.   I was brokenhearted when Starbucks stopped selling them, a few years ago.  Now the only way for me to get my hands on one is to go to New York City. 

Or, I can make my own.  I adore the contrast of black and white, and I could sit all day making the scrolls and swirls of icing - very relaxing for some reason.  I have been meaning to do this design in other color combinations - pink and green (preppy), blue and brown (classic), red and green (ho, ho, ho), yellow and orange (GOOD MORNING!) - my cookie to-do list grows longer by the day.

 My black and whites are pretty and they do taste good, but there is something about the big, soft, lemony round originals that can't be beaten.  Good thing I am headed for NYC this weekend for wedding dress shopping with Genevieve, her mom, and stepmom.  Bridal shops, wining and dining, and girl talk galore!  And in my suitcase to bring back home...a little white deli sack full of black and whites.  Now thats what I call a weekend!

  1. These are absolutely incredible. Found your link at Marty's. I'm a new follower.

  2. Your cookies really are lovely! I have ideas like this in my mind, but when my hands try to execute the designs, they fall flat! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Lisa, these are designer cookies, you need to be selling these with custom orders. If I tried to decorate cookies like this, mine would be gray! xo

  4. What an artist! The cookies are amazing!!!!

  5. So pretty!! I would love it if you would link up to my Tuesday Confessional party going on now. There is a really great giveaway going on with it. I hope to see you soon! http://www.craftyconfessions.com/2011/07/tuesday-confessional-linky-party-and.html

  6. I have never seen any cookie, this beautiful. I am thrilled you shared this on Let's Do Brunch so I discovered them. They are really amazing.

    I am not on My Sweet and Savory account which is why I am on Bizzy B Bakes. You might want to go down about six post at Bizzy and link up to Bake with Bizzy. This should be all over the Internet.

  7. Those look amazing! They sell black & white cookies at our local Publix grocery store, but they don't look that fabulous :)

  8. These are just beautiful! Love them!

  13. These are so gorgeous! I wish I would have had them for my "Ooh La La Bridal Shower" they would have been perfect! I guess I will have to start learning how to make swirls! Do you have a favorite recipe that you use for the under frosting and the swirl frosting?

  14. Bravo! black and white are my top favorite colors. I always envy those people who can bake. This is a great treat for a dessert buffet for a wedding reception :)

  15. Wow, these are totally unbelievable!! I am a huge fan of black and white damask....these are beautiful.

  16. Amazing. You should get these in front of the folks at White House Black Market (the clothing store). Such attention to detail. I'm not sure if I would want to eat them or frame them.

    Found you over at Sumo's Sweet Stuff.
