    Someone else who calls them half-moons!! Oh, you're from NY too. Where? I grew up east of Syracuse. Everywhere else they call them Black & Whites. How boring. Here is my mom's recipe, that I believe came from her mother. hope it's close to yours:

    1 1/2 c. sugar
    1 c. shortening
    2 eggs
    3 1/2 c. flour
    1 tsp. baking powder
    1 tsp. baking soda
    1 tsp. salt
    1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
    1 c. sour milk (if mom had no sour milk, she replaced a tablespoon of milk with a tablespoon of cider vinegar or lemon juice and let it sit for about 15 minutes)

    Cream shortening & sugar, beat in eggs. Sift dry ingredients, and stir in with vanilla & milk. Bake on grease sheets 12 minutes at 400.

    There ya go Wish you could send me one!

    If it's true we learn from our mistakes, I'm going to be a genius!

    I love half moons(grew up in boston) I have no recipe but will be back to check them out. I do not like the ones that have the frosting so thin, and hard. I buy them when ever i go back. mmmmmeaster is coming might have to make a detour or go down a day earlier.
    always give back and forward
