  1. Love your article and references for the bakeries.
    The images only contain one “Half Moon” cookie though; it’s the one with the chocolate cookie beneath the two icings.
    The other cookies are “Black and Whites”; they have the vanilla cookie beneath the icings.
    Folks who order from the bakeries may want to ask/specify if they have a preference…
