New York City Black and White Cookies

Look to the cookie.These cake-style cookies are a staple in New York City. Growing up we used to buy these all the time and you can still get them in every bake-shop in the city. They were made famous to the rest of the world by an episode of Seinfeld entitled "The Dinner Party". They are more like small cakes than crunchy or chewy cookies, and should be roughly the size of the palm of your hand, if not, bigger. These are great for taking to a potluck, or if you've got a wayward New Yorker around.
