Black and white cookies

  • c

Does anyone know where, if anywhere, one can buy black and white cookies in the Boston area? I've looked at at various delis and bakeries with no luck.

      best ones in boston, IMHO--they're something of an obsession for me-- are at Kupel's bagels in Brookline. I think their hours are observant-Jewish, in other words, closed Friday nite and Sat. all day. But they're great.

        Lyndell's has incredibly DEEP black and whites, with the frosting about 1" higher than the cookie (cake?) itself. Definitely need a tall black coffee to wash it down, but what a treat!

          I'll put another vote in for Lyndell's. Heavenly!

        2. I've seen them at some of the bakery stalls at Quincy Market. Not sure how they taste though.

            Anyone had the ones at Quincy Market? I saw some that had frosting piled an inch high, they looked really decadent, but I was so stuffed from Durgin Park that I bypassed all the chocolates, cookies, and gelato. I'd love to know if they're as good as they look.

          2. Most NYC-like ones I have had are from Mike's in the North End.

            1. I've seen them at Royal Pastry, Cambridge Street, Cambridge.

              1. Costco sells a tub of about 20 for for 6 or 7 dollars, and the're not bad about 2 inchs in size.
