Mini Black and White Cookies

I love black and white cookies and these were a good take on them.

  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 6 tbsp softened butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 lg egg
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk
  • 2 cup confectioners sugar
  • 1 tbsp + 1 tsp light corn syrup
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Sift flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl and set aside.
  2. Mix butter till creamy, add sugar and mix till fluffy.
  3. Mix in the egg and 1/2 tsp vanilla.
  4. Mix in the flour and buttermilk (add a little flour, then a little buttermilk, alternating the two until fully incorporated)
  5. Roll tablespoons of dough into balls and place 2'' apart on baking sheets. 
  6. Bake 10 minutes or until bottoms turn golden. Let cool
  7. Whisk confectioners sugar, corn syrup, 1/4 tsp vanilla and 1/4 tsp water till smooth. If necessary add more water, icing should be thicker than honey. 
  8. Transfer half the icing to another bowl and stir n cocoa, if necessary thin with waater.
  9. Spread white icing on half of each cookie and cocoa icing on the other half.
  10. Let set 30 minutes.
