These are borderline cookies. They remind me of a good italian black and white cookie, but less doughy and more cakey. I really like fun colored frostings, but I swear whenever I do it, it doesn’t look tasty – so, a little bit of hot chocolate cocoa powder gave a nice sweet little taste to the top and made them look a little prettier 🙂

What you’ll need:

  • 8 tbsp (one stick) unsalted butter at room temperature
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 large egg & 1 large egg white
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2¼ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • ½ cup milk (I used soy milk, since it’s all I had – still good!)
The How-to:
  1. Preheat your oven to 350°
  2. Combine the flour, salt and baking powder into a bowl
  3. Combine the butter and sugar in one bowl
  4. Add the egg and egg white, then vanilla! You’re doing great!
  5. Add the flour gradually, switching off with the milk (flour, milk, flour, milk, flour)
  6. Make whatever sized scoops of dough onto a cookie sheet to bake (however big you want your cakes to be) for 7-8 minutes.

Make yourself some frosting while you wait for all your cakes to come out!

  • 1 stick (8 tbsp) softened butter
  • 16oz. (3.5 cups) confectioner’s sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • 2-3 tbsp milk
  • If you want, some food coloring of your choice!

Mix all the ingredients together until they form fluffy frosting.
Spread this on your cooled cookies/cakes/pies whatever you’d like to call them, dust them with a little cocoa powder or sugar or whatever, and eat while you watch doctor who, pretending that the blue icing represents the tardis and everything you love.

Or.. whatever. 😉
These are rich and filling! You’ll love them!
Until next recipe,
