- For black glaze, follow the above instructions, this time including 6 Tbs of unsweetened sifted cocoa powder and increasing the milk to 1/2 Cp.
- To frost cookies use a knife and frost the vanilla side first, and frosting the chocolate sides allow cookies to dry until the frosting sets.


  1. Artie,

    These look delicious. Your grandmother looks frightening in that photo. Despite this fact, I would still really like some of these cookies. Therefore, I insist that you Fedex me yourself, and a batch of them --If there is room in the box. Remember to poke holes in one side.

    Thank you,
