Black and White Cookies

I have to admit, I was kind of apprehensive about making these from the beginning with no real reason other than I had no idea how to make them since I've never made anything like them before. I've made cookies and I've made cakes, but these are sort of a cookie/cake mix in my opinion. The recipe even calls for cake flour! They're very dense and after eating just one, you start to feel full. They ended up being pretty easy to make, though. The only thing about them is that they are very time-consuming. First you make the cookies and then you have to make the icing. After that, you have to actually frost the cookies. Overall, I think it took me about 4 hours to have these finished. The recipe I used is from Annie's EatsI got about 18 normal cookies and one giant one out of it.

Once I had a good amount of normal sized cookies, I decided to just use the remaining dough to make one giant cookie. It came out pretty awesome! And it didn't take any extra time to bake, either.

For some reason, the white glaze came out really doughy and thick for me. I don't know where I went wrong because I followed the recipe exactly, but these things happen. I just kept adding milk and stirring until the glaze was the right consistency.

After all the hours put into them, they did taste great! These aren't cookies that I'd make often just because of the time commitment they demand, but it's definitely a good recipe to try and keep in your baking arsenal!
