William Greenberg's Black and White Cookies: As Good As You've Heard

William Greenberg's Black and White Cookies: As Good As You've Heard

I'd heard a lot about the black and white cookies at William Greenberg's Desserts--they're often found on lists of the best black and white cookies in NYC. But I don't often make it to the Upper East Side, so when I ran across William Greenberg on the way to pay-what-you-can night at the Whitney, I popped in for a cookie.

The problem with most black and white cookies is that they are dry, crumbly, and taste of neither chocolate nor vanilla. But those at William Greenberg taste like a flat birthday cake--moist and airy yellow cake with your choice of vanilla or chocolate ganache-like frosting. It's everything a cupcake could be but usually isn't--portable, fluffy, and delicious. The cookies come in both regular (gigantic) and small sizes--I'd recommend gigantic.

The kosher bakery has been making cookies, brownies, cakes and the like since 1946, using the same recipes all the while.
