Look to the cookie, Elaine. Look to the cookie.

Black and White cookieBack 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.

Don't forget to have a "big salad" and some scrambled eggs with lobster in them.

Don't forget the pudding skin singles and muffin tops.

A Seinfeld themed party is a great idea, I'm suprised I never thought of it. But I don't think I could eat the black and whited cookie, wasn't that the cookie that made Jerry end is no-vomit streak?

The party would have to include Snickers -- served on plates with knives, of course.

Oh man! The calzone! That floored me. How about Oh Henry candy bars. [Kramer tried to sue the heiress to the Oh Henry candy bar fortune for wearing a bra as a top]

Also, Kramer used to work in bagel shop. And in that same episode Elaine wanted to get fill a card for a submarine sandwich shop so that she could be a Submarine Captain.

As an addition to the soup, you can put rubberbands in it, because that is what Paco [I think that was his name] did at the diner in some obscure episode.

I think maybe I'm stretching it a little thin though. I think it would be tough to set a party of this nature up, but you could have it like a potluck where everyone brings a Seinfeld related food to the party.

And soup, too. If you can get it, anyway... Because, for a Seinfeld party, Campbell's just wouldn't cut it.

How about a T-bone steak or calzones for a lunch party? Gyro's too.

Drake's coffee cakes are a must. And Junior Mints.

If you had a Seinfeld themed party you could serve only foods unique to Seinfeld. I mean, marble rye, pez, and snapple come to mind. Oh, and Kenny Rogers' chicken. I'm sure there are more but you get the idea.

That is such a good idea to have a Seinfeld party...
