Paul Simon once sang that "everything looks worse in black and white." Clearly, the guy had never sampled a black and white ice cream sandwich cookie.

Starting out with the classic New York deli treat and sandwiching it with chocolate and vanilla ice cream, this is basically a trinity of awesome: cakey cookies, sweet frosting, and creamy, rich ice cream.

In fact, there's only one thing about this black and white treat that might give you pause: if you choose to alternate the alignment of the frosting and ice cream flavors, which side do you eat first?
