If anyone is able to share the black and white cookie recipe from the purple spice and spirit cookbook I would be so grateful!! I do not need the icing recipes, just the actual cookie dough. Thank you so much!

Does anyone know if I can use oil instead of margarine in this recipe? Will it still come out in that dome shape, and freeze well?
TIA!

Did you use oil or margarine? Mine are in the oven now. I had to refrigerate the dough for a bit before I was able to roll them.

White Icing:
1 cup confectioner's sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
2 Tbsp hot water
1 Tbsp oil
1 drop lemon juice

Chocolate Icing:
3/4c. confectioner'ssugar
4 tspn cocoa
2 Tbsp hot water
1/2-1 Tbsp oil

They were fine with the oil, but I had to refrigerate the dough before rolling. I don't know if it's because of the oil, but the oil/sugar mixture is definitely a more "liquidy" consistency than the creamier margarine/sugar. Taste and shape are fine though.

The white icing was VERY watery. I had to add a lot more confectioner's sugar to make it spreadable.

I always use the "Stir and Drop Cookies" from the purple cookbook for black and whites. I find it an easier recipe to work with.

Not white at all. And much runnier than the black. Do the white first then black so it looks neater.

Yea, I thought so. Maybe I'll have to use my own mix with some royal white color gel.

Wow, I remember making these! My icing came out white, maybe because I added more sugar. I remember them because I made them for an upsherin and have pictures (the black part was a yamuka and put a smiley face on the white part).

Did they come out good. I made years ago and I remember they were disappointing. It could have been that I was new at baking. Love to try again if others found them good

I think so. Could be there is a better recipe out there, but it was fine for what I needed then.

I took a cake decorating class years ago and I was told to use a clear vanilla extract, Wilton has, so icing will stay white.
