Bergers-Style Cookies

Soft vanilla cookies are topped with a rich fudge-like frosting that will take your breath away; a copycat recipe of the famous Bergers Cookies from Baltimore.

A recreation of Bergers cookies - soft vanilla cookies topped with fudge frosting.

When I opened up my latest issue of Cook’s Country magazine, one recipe immediately jumped out at me – these Bergers-style cookies. I had never heard of them before, but after reading through the article, I learned that they are famous in the Baltimore area, hailing from a Bakery that was opened in 1800’s by German immigrants.

Aside from their storied history, I couldn’t get the picture out of my mind! A soft vanilla cookie topped with a full HALF INCH of chocolate fudge frosting. This was definitely a cookie with my name written all over it, and I wasted no time in whipping up a batch.
