Binging with Babish: Black & White Cookies from Seinfeld
Black and White Cookies are one of the few signature confections of New York City. While available at most bodegas, delis, or bakeries in New York, now you can try them yourself from the comfort of your own kitchen. Try the chocolate or vanilla side first, or just dive in straight down the middle like we do!

    Huh, never seen Seinfeld, but I've been enjoying these cookies since before it existed! I don't usually see them in southern bakeries, mostly factory made versions, but it makes the northeast a bit more tolerable to have these at every deli and bakery I go to lol
