It’s that magical time of the year again where witches and warlocks and monsters of all kinds come out to celebrate.  This year is looking to be nothing less than spooktacular (;))!

Black and White Cookies

Black and White Cookies 5

This week I wanted to create a twist on the normal black and white cookies.  Since the original style is already extremely good, I wanted to see if I could make it even better.  As you know, I try to make things a little bit “healthier” in choice of ingredients and I will never say that what I make is 100% purely healthy (I mean, I still use ingredients such as sugar and butter), but I do try to make favorite desserts not so guilty.  So in this case, there are no added ingredients like corn syrup and the sugar is kept to as minimal as possible without ruining any taste.
