Binging with Babish: Black & White Cookies from Seinfeld

Birt 31 ágú 2021
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!
