Tate’s Bake Shop is a bakery located in Southampton, NY on the east end of Long Island. Although I’ve never been to the bakery itself, Tate’s packages and sells its cookies, among other products, in various Whole Foods and other gourmet food stores. Surprisingly, I just found out that the deli I go to almost every morning on the way to work sells Tate’s cookies (score!).
The thing about Tate’s chocolate chip cookies is that they’re crunchy. I love crunchy chocolate chip cookies and people think I’m crazy.
But I don’t always have a chance to buy their cookies so I thought I’d try making them myself using the recipe from Tate’s Bake Shop Cookbook.
The results…tasty but obviously not the same. I didn’t expect them to print the recipe for their prized cookie so easily so I’m not surprised the cookies were missing a certain…something. I also may have wrongly proportioned the baking soda. Whoooooops.
