    I made these thinking they would be like the half-moon cookies I grew up loving from a deli-bakery in my hometown in western NY. They were good, but they were not at all what I expected. After some research, it seems that there are "half-moon cookies" - true to central NY - that are devil food cookies with buttercream frosting. Then there are "black and white cookies" true to NYC - vanilla cookies w/ an icing. These are the latter. Good cookies, but I believe the recipe name is misleading.
