A great black and white cookie in Brooklyn
There's this place on Court St., I think between Baltic and Warren, (or something like that, walk away from Atlantic Ave. past Wyckoff one or two blocks) called College Bakery. They make really wonderful black and white cookies that cost 75 cents. Each one is differently proportioned (black vs. white) and the cookies are always fresh (unless they don't have em that day) and have a nice, cakey but still cookie-like consistency. The chocolate frosting is really good but it's the vanilla that catches my attention - genuine vanilla flavor, and that's rare in the genre. The frosting also isn't as hard as most b&ws, rendering the cooking a total catastrophe once it's been bagged.
