A classic New York cookie made better with real vanilla and pure butter (no shortening in these!). Real Black and White cookies, which I've had, are not quite as tasty as they look on screen. (Seinfeld episodes, or Sex in the City - both have characters munching on Black and White cookies). But the concept of a giant, buttery cookies, smeared half with vanilla and half with chocolate fondant, if made well, is riveting stuff. I love this cookie and sometimes make it half chocolate and half orange (flavor the fondant with orange oil or extract and a touch of orange food coloring). The size is what draws you; the taste is what keeps you in a New York frame of mind. This is a cake-like cookie; if you want my own revamped version, a big, buttery, crisper cookie - not quite shortbread, not quite a butter cookie but inbetween - try Very New York Black and White Cookies in the Complete Recipe Archives.
