Joyce's Bakeshop in Prospect Heights until I was doing research on the city's best black and white cookies. I liked their take on the black and white, using frosting instead of fondant, though that does make it a little hard to save the cookie for later. While I was there, I made a mental note to come back and try more treats, and a few months later--when an Ample Hills visit went awry--I stopped by Joyce's again. This time I spied a whoopie pie.
