In this article, we will answer the question “Can you freeze black and white cookies?” and discuss how to make cookies?

Can you freeze black and white cookies?

Yes, you can freeze black and white cookies. To be honest, they’re simply regular, cakey cookies. Then I’d put them in an airtight container and freeze them. As a precautionary measure, I would ice them once they had thawed out of the freezer. 

To freeze them after frosting, I would put them on a baking sheet and freeze for several hours until the icing was set, and then gently wrap them. Ideally, however, the cake should be frozen before frosting.

Cheesesteaks in Philadelphia and deep dish pizza in Chicago are two delicacies that are strongly identified with their respective cities. The black and white cookie is one of New York City’s most identifiable and one of my favorite delicacies. If you don’t have time to go to the city, you may make them at home with this simple recipe.

The Cookies

Cookies with black and white stripes are distinctive from other kinds of cookies. Half of the cookie is coated in black frosting and half is covered in white frosting with a tinge of lemon in it (sometimes they are merely vanilla, but this is more usual). 

While the cookies have a delicate crumb that melts in your mouth and a robust crumb that can hold up to the icing, they are in between shortbread and sponge cake in texture.

The icing on top

Typically, black and white cookies are decorated with a thick layer of poured fondant icing. Fondant has a glossy sheen, but it takes a long time to manufacture compared to other icings, such as buttercream.

It’s simple to prepare these chocolate and lemon icings, and they taste great with the biscuit. Using dark chocolate chips and cocoa powder, the frosting has a deep color and a rich chocolate taste. Lemon juice is used to flavor the white frosting. If you’re not a fan of lemons, you may leave them out of the recipe. 

How to eat cookies with black and white stripes on them

The best approach to have a true bakery experience is to consume them as soon as possible. I like to eat mine from the center out so that I can enjoy both of the frostings equally. Both coffee and milk go well with them.

You may, however, refrigerate them in an airtight container for up to two days after baking. Stacking the cookies can distort their appearance, so make sure to store them in an airtight container. These cookies freeze well and can be quickly thawed on the counter when you’re ready to enjoy them.

Cookies in the manner of a New York bakery, in black and white.

This recipe yields 32 to 34 cookies.

For the cookies, combine the following ingredients in the following order:

  • 21.4 ounces of all-purpose white flour
  • Baking powder, half a teaspoon
  • One-fourth of a teaspoon of salt
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 1 and a half cups of room temperature butter
  • 2 hefty ovaries
  • 1/3 cup of milk
  • 1 tbsp. of pure vanilla essence
  • 1 tbsp. of lemon juice
  • The cherry on top:
  • Chocolate chunks, 1 ounce
  • Chocolate powder, 1 tbsp.
  • 5 tbsp. hot water, divided into 2 12 to 3 cups granulated sugar
  • lemon juice, about a teaspoonful (optional)


  • The oven should be preheated at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for this recipe. Use parchment paper to cover a baking pan. Mix flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium basin.
  • Using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar in a large basin on medium speed until well combined. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the eggs, vanilla, and lemon zest; then gradually add the flour mixture.
  • Form the dough into 1-inch balls (if you have one, use it) and place it on the baking sheet, spacing them approximately 2 inches apart. After 12-14 minutes of baking, check on the cookies to see whether they are done.
  • On a wire rack, let the biscuits cool fully.
  • Add the chocolate chips and cocoa powder to a small mixing dish and stir well. Melt the chocolate by placing 3 tablespoons of hot water on top of it. Then add in 1 to 112 cups of powdered sugar and whisk rapidly until the frosting has a thick and silky consistency and is ready to be used.
  • This time, in a separate small bowl, whisk together the remaining 2 tablespoons of boiling water and the lemon juice (if using) with 112 – 2 cups of powdered sugar.

White frosting should be spread over half the bottom of each biscuit in Step 5. After a few minutes of cooling, put the remaining chocolate frosting over the bottom half of each biscuit. Before storing, let the icing harden for at least an hour or two.
