In my family, black and whites, half-moon cookies, or as my sister and I simply call them- "moon cookies", are the go-to homecoming offering. I wanted to give this cookie a summer makeover with vanilla and fresh raspberry frosting. Enjoy this gluten-free version of a New York classic.

Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
step 2
In a large bowl with a hand or stand mixer with a paddle attachment cream Unsalted Butter (1/2 cup) and Granulated Sugar (1 cup) until light and fluffy, scrape down the bowl as necessary.
step 3
In the same bowl combine Egg (1), Sour Cream (1/2 cup), Vanilla Extract (2 tsp), 1 tsp zest and 1 Tbsp juice from Lemon (1). Mix until fully combined.
step 4
In a separate bowl, add Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour (2 1/4 cups), Baking Soda (as needed), Baking Powder (1 tsp), and Kosher Salt (1 tsp) and mix. Add dry mixture to the wet ingredients on low speed until combined.
step 5
Using an ice cream scoop (about ¼-cup), place the batter on a baking sheet 1 inch apart. Use an off-set spatula to flatten the batter until about 4 1/2 inches in diameter circles and ½-inch thick. Bake for 10-15 minutes until the edges start to brown.
step 6
Cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, then remove from the baking sheet and allow to cool fully on a wire rack.
step 7
To make the vanilla icing, combine Powdered Confectioners Sugar (1 1/2 cups), 1 tsp of Lemon Juice, Water (8 tsp), Vanilla Extract (1 tsp), and Light Corn Syrup (1 Tbsp) until smooth.
step 8
Divide icing evenly between two bowls.
step 9
In a small saucepan, combine Fresh Raspberry (1 cup) with Granulated Sugar (1 Tbsp) and Water (2 Tbsp) and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to low and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
step 10
Strain the raspberry mixture to remove the seeds.
step 11
Mix in ¼ Cup of Raspberry mixture into half of the premade frosting. It should be thick, but still fall off the spoon. If too thick, add a tiny splash of hot water. If too thin, add a little bit of powdered sugar.
step 12
Turn the cooled cookies flat side-up and frost the vanilla first, then the raspberry after. Let the frosting set before serving.
