Black & Whites

While other people might just hear the melody, I also hear the lyrics when I listen to music. A song that shuffled up recently is "Ain't No Rest for the Wicked" by Cage the Elephant. Which might be apropos because my insomnia, which never quite goes away, is back with a vengeance.

I also seem to notice things when I'm running that other people don't. A skinny little dead snake. A blooming century plant. The Lunar Eclipse.

Now you have the back story behind my middle of the dark decision to bake Black & Whites. Apparently they are also called "half moons", though I've never heard them called that.

Wikipedia says these are a NY. snack. I think they could be FL. snacks too....:-)

Amy, have you found fiori di Sicilia in Austin? I am not making black and whites until I get my hands on that. There's a good recipe in Salon, but it says that's the secret ingredient. KA sells it, but I'd like to just go pick some up.

Anna, I didn't think about using it and it would have been perfect! I bought a bunch of stuff from KAF a couple of years ago when they had a free shipping offer, and it was perfect timing because I was on a pannetone baking binge :)

Have you tried All in One Bakeshop?
