    Best way to get perfect round and equal portion is to use an ice cream scoop, also use melted bitter sweet chocolate has a better taste than using cocoa powder when making the glaze.

      Margie's It's No Secret Candies Hi Margie, just add about 1 ounce to the white icing. No need to use butter, the flavor is much better

      Yes, I agree using a bittersweet chocolate bar and butter would be great. I have to try that. Thank you very much!! Margie

      KingOfKings or they were created in utica you know like they actually were

      Im from utica... Thats what everyone here says that. But I say its bullshit. Is it more likely that halfmoons traveled from Utica to NYC? Or from NYC to Utica? Give that some honest thought. And by the way, Ive eaten a thousand of these cookies. Usually the chocolate is put on first and then the vanilla side overlaps it a little

      Yes the texture of this cookie is a cross between a pound cake and a muffin. Well I hate to say it but here goes. There are so many versions of this cake that are actually better tasting than the original.There I said it.Margie

    i was confused you called this 'cookie', since the general understanding of a cookie is something crunchy or crispy
    a quick research fixed my problem: its the actual name of this pastry.
    in germany we call this kind of 'cookie' "amerikaner" ;)

    Hi Margie. I had to laugh, because I thought of Seinfeld about the episode at the bakery and Jerry wanted a Black and White cookie. These are famous in NYC.
    Looks so delicious. Hope you have a Blessed and Happy Easter with your Family. :)
