Look to the cookie, Elaine. Look to the cookie.
Back in December,’James Yu over at Slashfood posted about the Black and White
cookie, made famous by the’Seinfeld episode ‘The Dinner Party.’ Readers gave their own opinions
on the origin of the cookie.’
Now The Philadelphia Daily News not only has a little history on the cookie, but they also give the recipe for the ultimate Black &
White’cookie. In case you’re’throwing your own Seinfeld related party. (Of course,’you can always order them online if you’re too busy to make them
yourself.)’Make sure you wear your manssiere and bring some chocolate babka’for your hosts.’

Black and Whites are my favorite cookie. I’ll often get one downstairs at Grand Central on the way into the city.

Which side do you like better? Black? Or White?
I find the typical B/W cookie, at least in NYC has the consistancy and mouth feel more of a very thin cake than a cookie or even a ‘soft’ cookie.
I like ’em both! They really are misnamed. A true black & white is really a cake. Only the cheap nasty imitations are cookie like.
Question: who makes the best in NYC?
I haven’t done any ‘research’ on the subject, but your B/W cookie ‘dealer’ of choice, Zarros in GCT has great _everything_. For a bakery in such a commercial/touristy location, it is really great. It’s also very expensive, but hey, the train rides a pretty reasonable.
