COPYCAT RECIPE – BALTIMORE’S FAMOUS BERGER COOKIES

Baltimore's storied Berger cookies, a product of that city's DeBaufre Bakeries, are a close relation to New York City's Black and Whites (a.k.a. Half and Halfs or Half Moons). These cake-like cookies are piled with thick, rich chocolate icing — the thicker the better. Note that the cookies themselves are rather dry, so the over-the-top amount of icing, rather than being overkill, is just right. While we can't claim this recipe makes "the real thing," we feel it's close to the original — and perfect for those of you who can't get to Baltimore.
