in its namesake, a New York City tradition, the Black and White Cookie.
Adding a tasty touch to a timeless classic, The Black and White Cookie
Company relies on a recipe handed down from a German baker who brought the
cookie with him to the States some 80 years ago. We then spent 3 years on
that recipe and made it even better; crisp around the edges, soft in the
middle with that perfect hint of lemon. They are truly the best Black and
White Cookies on earth!
The addition of a full range of exotic flavor combinations, shapes,
decorative varieties and edible full-color custom images gives the
traditional Black and White Cookie a modern makeover perfectly suited for
corporate use as well as direct retail, weddings, religious occasions,
birthdays and more.
The Black and White Cookie Company was conceptualized over 6 years ago.
Joshua Auerbach, a long time fan of the Black and White, was struck by the
conspicuous absence of the treat outside his home state of New York. He
registered blackandwhitecookies.com in February 2001, a temporary site was
launched with no marketing or advertising. Proof of concept was rapid as
the site received email after email from ex-New Yorkers, tourists, and
others wanting to purchase the cookies.
