Black and White Cookies

Joan Winston | Jan 31, 2001 03:17 PM

I made the "Zabar's" black and white cookies according to the recipe in Molly O'neils column in last Sunday's New York Times magazine. BOY! Were they ugly. They tasted great though. The recipe claims to yield 24 cookies when you drop the dough in "soup spoons". Not. Unless you use an enormous soup spoon. I used a normal one and got way more,much smaller than the traditional black and whites. And the icing was way too thin and sort of slid off the cookies. By the way, I've made Molly O'Neil's recipe for veal stock and she says it yields about 16 cups but the most I've ever gotten is around 9. What am I doing wrong?
