A black-and-white cookie, or half-and-half cookie, is a soft, sponge-cake-like shortbread which is iced on one half with vanilla fondant and on the other half by chocolate fondant created in the Bavarian region of Germany.

Notably, this style of cookie is often seen as a particularly "New York" snack coming out of "Kleindeutschland," i.e., Little Germany, a German immigrant neighborhood situated in the Lower East Side of Manhattan. SOURCE: Wikipedia
