Half Moon Cookies
Here in WNY, our Half Moon cookies look like the above. Most places make a chocolate or a yellow vanilla cake cookie. They are as big as the palm of your hand and have buttercream frosting on top.
NYC's black and whites have a shortbread cookie, not a cake cookie and are smaller. Ours were started in Utica, NY in 1925. Most people here in Rochester like Wegmans' Half Moons better-- I think it's the frosting, not sure!
You can get a recipe here: In a Pinch Recipes. (for the Chocolate kind). Well, this was off topic but maybe Kelly's will start selling Half Moons some day!!
