DFW-The Black and White Cookie

Please, I beg you...where can I find a black and white cookie in the Metroplex? I am dying here! I have to have one. Help me....please!

  1. Cindy's NY Deli, the one on central has em. Supposedly NY style, softer thicker. Not the kind we had growing up here.

        I've heard people drive in from Tyler to pick up a dozen of Samantha's b&ws. A couple of my friends have confirmed that Rush Patiserrie's version is dead on to NY

          Rush's black and whites are more cake-like in consistency. They are good but might not be what you would expect.

        2. Bagelstein's!!! Very good, moist, thicker....comparable to the ones in NY. Used to drive miles for them when they were up in Richardson. They just moved a few months back to the Preston/Royal area. Yea for me.

          1. Ed's Deli at Preston and LBJ has them.


            Never been a fan of the black and white cookie. Even the supposedly good ones are too dry and cakey.

            1. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

              1. McKinley's Bakery on University in Fort Worth has them!

                  I have never had one here that taste like the ones in NY...Hey, it's a good excuse to continue to go to NY!

                    I plan to ship them home when I go in Ocotober.

                2. Now that Bagelstein's is gone, i had to go someplace else for my Black and White cookie fix. So naturally I tried Ed's Deli since it was the closest place. Now, talk about the biggest disappointment of the year. After my second bite, i threw the whole thing out. It was that bad. It was stale and crumbly. It got all over my computer keyboard and I was really irritated. This was after having a very mediocre bowl of Matzo Ball soup - flavorless and severely lacking in key ingredients. Just don't bother with Ed's! And oh yea, their bagels are horrible too. It's like sponge bread. Yuck!

                  Luckily, several days later as i was picking up a cappuccino at Drip coffee, i noticed these delicious looking B&W cookies staring at me. One bite of these and I was in heaven! Since Drip used to get all their baked good from Doughmonkey (of course all the good places are gone!), they now get all their baked goods from Rush Patisserie (in Deep Ellum). These cookies are moist and yes cake-y, just the way they should be. Icing is not too sweet. Worth every calorie!
